Yesterday was an interesting day. I set out with the Gran Fondo NY group ride with the B pace group. Wow there were a lot of people. In our group I would say there was around 50 riders. With such a large group there was no problem finding a draft. That made it easier.
This was my first big ride if the year. Before this one my biggest was 40 miles. This ride was about double. We hit two of the timed climbs. The last 4 miles my Garmin shut off so that was my cue for recovery mode. I was already hurting any way.
The worst was when I stopped and went to get in my car. That’s when I felt everything.
I definitely needed this ride. I need one more and I should be ready.
