It has been a long cold winter. It even snowed on the first day of Spring. But things finally look like they are coming around. When I got home from work yesterday the temperature was 60 degrees and it was mostly sunny. So I kitted up and headed out for my first ride of the year.
I have been on the trainer a few times over the winter months, but not enough to really build up any bike fitness. So I took it easy on the inaugural ride with an easy cruise up to Rockford on the White Pine Trail. There aren't a lot of hills on that route, but enough to tell me my legs are not in shape. The 15 miles felt good, however. Now I only have 1,485 miles to ride to meet my goal for this year.
