Another gorgeous day, another fun bike ride, and a new riding buddy! We rode across the bridge and down to the end of the Sausalito bike path, then back. Of course Cibo was a necessary stop on the way back. I’m happy to report that I didn’t have any mishaps with tourists today. They were thinner on the bridge than usual because of the fog. I did however realize that, while my new tires make me faster (I reached 30 mph on a flat today), they are tricky in wind. They have an aero design and even though the extra material is minimal, it is enough to catch our strong bay area winds. I almost wiped out at one point when I was cruising down a hill and the wind took control of my bike. Perhaps I’m too light for these wheels in the wind? Or maybe I just need to get used to controlling them!
I came home and decided it was time to update my core work page. Doing all of the poses with a 10 second self-timed camera didn’t prove to be easy, but I did learn quite a bit about my form- and what I was doing wrong- from looking at the pictures I took!
The workout: 22.7 mile bike ride
2 good climbs, done at a good clip, reminding myself to keep spinning in a low gear
