Or maybe sixty isn't really THAT old. Yeah..that's the ticket...not old at ALL! Just a spring chicken, pecking around for seed. Yep...I think that's what I am.
Anyway, I felt like going somewhat 'big' on a bike ride to prove I still can (and to see where I am in my 'comeback)...so I ditched the weekly Saturday Morning 'group ride' and went solo. I don't do much solo anymore...too many close calls w/ cars..I think there's safety in numbers on road bikes. But I made an exception on Saturday (and besides, nobody else wants to do MY rides).
Here's my Strava screenshots (in case you've never seen a Strava ride). After the ride I connect my Garmin to my PC and it automaticly uploads any new rides. Then I click on it and this is what comes up:
And so...the pictures I took w/ my cell phone and uploaded after the ride:
Anyway, I figure it's not to shabby for a 57 year old recreational rider who works for a living...I can live with that. AND I'm still getting faster! Not sure how many more years I will be able to make that claim, but for now I can...so WOO-HOO! And I HOPE to be still getting faster 5 years from now (when I retire)! Wouldn't THAT be something!
