More bicycling

I've been spending a lot of my free time training for the Tour to Tanglewood, a fund raising event for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Our team is trying hard to train as a group, but we are not always successful. We finally did get most of the team together for a 40 mile ride today. It took 3 hours of riding time, and a bit over 4 hours total time, but we made it.

The forecast was for thunderstorms, but it turned out to be a splendid day for cycling. It was overcast, not too hot, not much wind, and no rain at all until this evening. I went through 3 quarts of Gatorade. Maybe I should buy stock in the company.

I'm beginning to think I may actually make it through the 50 mile first day of the Tour next month (3 weeks from today!) but getting up and going 40 more miles the next day is going to be hard. Still, I'm looking forward to it.

I've done 40 mile rides twice now, and both times I felt like I still had enough energy to go further, so I'm beginning to believe 50 is achievable. That is quite a contrast with the first ride of the summer, a 'mere' 14 miles that just about did me in.
