Labor Day Ride
I labored hard today on a ride out to the Morgan-Monroe State Forest and back with Dr. Jim. We averaged 17.1 mph for the 32-mile ride, which included three sizable climbs (Beanblossom; Old 37 up to Hindustan, and Firehouse Hill) and a total of 1330 feet of climbing (according to my iBike; PerfPro says it was over 2000 ft). It was good to burn some of the excess of calories I've consumed over the weekend.
