Getting back in the saddle…

Mileage cut in half. Work hours dialed upward. Humid days continue.

Riding 200 miles a week is now a fantasy, let alone doing it in one day. The Powerhouse Double Century in the Sierra foothills is in October. A break in the 90-degree plus days in inland San Diego area might soon inspire more saddle time with an eye on fall. Remember how Phil and Paul would speak about how Jan Ullrich always hoped to “ride his way into fitness” during the Tour de France and peak on the third critical week?

Maybe it’s time to target the next bike thing. And get a few long ones in.
