When I woke up today, I decided to join the AIDS/Lifecycle 2010 kick off ride to Mill Valley and back. The scheduled route was Ride 1 of the CAT series. I have been riding at least 40 miles at at time lately and wondered if this 22 mile ride would satisfy me.
As I left my place, it was pretty misty and the roads were wet. I made it to the Sports Basement at 9:15 and didn’t see any other riders. I thought perhaps I missed the ride or missed the cancellation memo. I almost took off on my own thinking I could stand riding for an hour in drizzle.
I circled the parking lot and eventually found the group.
I enthusiastically encouraged people to ride, but my attitude took a turn as the ride time approached. The drizzle increased, my fingers and toes became numb and the cold wetness sunk down to my bones. Burr! One of the riders offered me a ride home and I accepted.
What a bummer. Only rode 4 miles today. I’m going to at least get some yoga in today and I’ll to look into spinning classes for this week. I don’t want to fall behind.
