Charlie had to cancel so it was just me and JB again. And it was hot. I drove to the church and unloaded. I'm so far out of practice that I forgot my bikecam, so you get a plain old cell phone selfie:
|Ewww, what is going on with my neck? |
Looks like the coin slot in a vending machine!
My plan was just to do Junction again, I had neither the endurance, strength, or time to do any more. Good thing too, because I was SLOW. Also had to stop twice again for a stretch break... pretty much the same places as last time. I guess my next goal will be to make it to Junction without stopping but I still can't climb out of the saddle and I have a long ways to go fitness-wise.
Met a guy at Junction who was doing repeats up The Mountain - I said something about how that must be because he couldn't do The Death Ride because it was cancelled for a big fire, and he WAS registered and stayed overnight in Kirkwood when he got the word that they were evacuating Alpine County.
Not a lot of riders this afternoon, but they all gave me a wave. ✋✋
