Saturday 7/30/11

150.2mi  8:50
avg 17.0mph
max 63.9mph

Started of with nice flat ground and then it was a steady climb with three big climbs and 3 very nice down hills. First one was very scary because I had now idea how the brakes would do. Second one was not that fast but the third one was super. All the way from 2300ft down to 780ft between 45 - 64mph. Got into camp after sunset. I think the rest stops were maybe a little to long. To sum it up it was very good, the first climbs are now out of the way and they were not bad at all.
My left MS Plus tire blew out today, so I had to wait on top of the hill for quite some time for a replacement. I had to switch to Kojacks in the front for I did not think of bringing extra tires! So it might be a little faster but we will see about the punctures still.

Friday 7/29/11

134mi 6:51
avg 19.6mph
max 54.1mph

Started of great today. There were some construction on part of the roads that made navigating a little difficult and a lot of people got lost. At one junction in the road I had to wait a hour for someone to show up and confirm to go left or right. Did not mind to much, the legs needed the rest. The last thirty miles I had so bad hot spots on my feet I had to take the shoes of and cycled bare foot. That helped. Will also make sure that tomorrow I eat better. All and all it was not to bad.

Sunday OBS ride with the club. This was the first ride with the Contour, just a little test to see how it works.

33.3mi / 53.5km

Going home today was very hard. Picked the road with the most hills and stoplight because it was the shortest. Turns out the short one was the wrong choice.

34mi / 54.7km

First time in a long time that I cycle to work again. I could feel the legs are not use to it. Still made pretty good time.
