|Part of the team, somewhere near Saugatuck.|
Sunday was the annual Tour de Taco team ride in Holland. We did two loops from Holland down through Saugatuck and back. The first loop was 31 miles. I felt pretty good, even pulling the group a few times. The second loop was 26 miles and I started to feel the accumulated effort of the weekend. I hit the wall about 45 miles into the ride. At 57 miles this was my longest ride of the year. I've been doing several 20-30 mile rides, but nothing much longer, so my stamina wasn't where I'd like it to be. Still I was able to finish strong and the next half-century ride will be much better.
11 weeks until we ride in Santa Fe. Have you made your donation yet?
