Saturday, January 31st
I led a morning ride of two diamond frames on my little 21 mile hill-slog. My average speed was 9.7, while the fastest rider (I was the slowest, natch') averaged about 11. The other two waited for me at the top of the hills, but I was never very far behind.
I feel less toasted after this ride then the last time I did it, so my plan of getting stronger must be working.
It was a nice cool sunny day with a slight breeze. I was cold starting out, but warmed up after the first hill.
I did take a few minutes the other day and lube the chain and various other moving parts. Less noise, more fun now. I'll admit to 'repairing' one splitting chain tube with Gorilla tape. I need to just order a whole set of new tubes for both trikes and figure out how to put them on. Sigh.
It is supposed to rain sometime real soon, so I'm not sure when next I'll ride.
