This last weekend I biked the longest distance since having thyroid cancer. I did the Ride 2 Recovery metric century (62 miles) while on a low carb diet (this link goes to my low carb blog).
- THIRTY degree difference in temperature while biking!
- Climbed one of the Santa Monica Mountains at mile 40 (this ride that I did on 4/1)
- Hollah’ed at a bunch of hot cyclists
- An embarrassingly slow speed of 12.5 mph 🙁
While coming down the mountain on a narrow road, I had to hold up traffic to get down safely. I couldn’t help but notice some of the beautiful scenery and went back later to get some pics.
Sadly the ride was very sparse this year; last year there were tons of people. This is a super cool ride – usually there are vets with modified bikes and/or prosthetics (and they are, of course, effing amazing cyclists and usually super hotties, too). AND it’s in conjunction with the Sheriff’s station, so the cops hold up traffic for the cyclists (YEAH) and the lights as well. And they are hot as well.
