On Saturday, we completed our third team training ride. This time we started at Bicycle Village in Aurora and did two laps of Cherry Creek State Park. You can view my actual route at MapMyRide.com. Considering how winded I felt after the first 12 mile ride, I felt pretty good after this 23 mile ride.
That’s not saying I wasn’t in the back of the pack, I still have a lot more training to do before I can keep up with the bulk of the team. But that is what this training is all about. I am getting in better shape already and I will keep pushing myself on each ride. My times, speeds, etc. are all just a way to track my progress. I’m not racing against anyone except myself.
