Recovery Ride

The other week Susan and I rode an unusual amount, even for us retired folk.

We rode Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday — or five out of seven days.

For us, this is a lot.

Our Friday ride was a true ‘social ride’.

We went through places we’d rarely been.

The pace averaged 11-12 mph for the entire ride.

We noticed things, we talked.

It was great for its timing and for a change.

The next day we marshalled the Tour de Cure on Long Island and we breezed through the 65 miles at a modest 14.5 mph.

Every now and then , I need to remember that Friday ride and do one of those.
