On Sunday, I went on a 40-mile ride from Cape Canaveral to Sebastian Inlet State Park. It wasn’t an unpleasant ride, but the flat terrain, crosswind, and traffic made it less than ideal.
The payoff was supposed to be the beach at the end of the ride. Kristy drove there and met me. We were at the beach for only a few minutes when the bugs got bad, so we left in the truck with the bike in the back.
I did notice that my lack of riding recently has affected my fitness level. The flat 40-miler kicked my butt. I need to ride more often.
I’m home, and was back at work today. I drove, but I’ll be on the bike tomorrow.
