Except for the shady sections, it was a hot ride today, and a little windy towards the end, but it felt great to get back out there. I took a long warm-up and stopped to stretch several times, plus before and after the ride. I am sill feeling a little scared to push my speed for fear of hurting my leg again, which is still a little stiff. Thank you Amy and Mattie for organizing the ride and staying with me.
34.4 miles went by pretty quickly. And even though I stopped a lot, my average speed was a good 12 mph.
