Yesterday I called the hills on our Wednesday Night Ramble Goldilocks hills. Not too steep, not too flat. My legs told me a different story overnight and this morning. An easy spin or recovery ride is a standard remedy for those aching muscles. I planned on one of those easy, short recovery rides. I ended up doing 25 miles, but it took over 3 hours with all the stops for photos, taking to friends, stopping for coffee, stopping for no reason. It was a good day to ride a bike.
Wednesday Night Ramble in Tiverton RI. Six of us showed for this first Wednesday night ride of the season..Lots of Goldilocks hills. (Not too shallow, not too steep). This and my daily ride around town gives me 27 for the day, which is my average daily miles for the month.
The summer tour is imminent but the route is still undecided. I’m really leaning toward Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard for a short 5 or 6 day ride. West Virginia with the Rails to Trails group is still a possibility.
