So went riding in the Julington Durbin Preserve. That is the place where I was attacked by Killer Bees last time I was in there. So I took a different route! Well this route was far better as far as sand and Killer Bees go. I had a really good time! I saw turkey, armadillos, squirrels & snakes. It was a nice warm ride. Went about 10 miles total and when I got back home I went to the pool and jumped right in with my bike shorts on and did a few laps. Man was that refreshing! But when I got out I noticed that my rear tire was a little flat and the front was pretty low. Then I looked and had about a 100 sand spurs in each tire. By the time I got to my front door they were both flat! At least it wasn’t when I was deep in the woods. So when I got the tires off the tubes I had about 7 holes in each tube! So then I had to get needle nose pliers and pull each thorn out of my tire one by one!! Man was that fun! But it was good to get back on the mountain bike!
Ride this morning was very very foggy and muggy. Not what you would expect at almost November!! I rode alone this morning and it was a good ride just wet and nasty after riding through the fog for an hour.
Met Jim at the back of his complex. Roads were nasty wet from the rain over night. The bikes got really dirty and we got pretty wet as well from road splash. We were a little slower than normal because we had to keep it slow in the turns and merges due to the wet roads. Still a good ride though!
This morning was a little dark and a little cold. It was almost to cold but warm enough that i didnt have to wear cold weather clothes. Went fast I used the Garmin for the first time in the dark and it was awesome in the dark! I now have a attack time and my new route is 52 minutes. I called the city about the debris and sand on Phillips Hwy in front of the VW dealership. They were out there to clean it up in less than an Hour!!! I was like huh?? Really? I didn’t think it would actually get cleaned up i was just calling to complain!
So today we (Jim, Kenny, & I)rode the same route as yesterday and because of my cool new Cycle Computer I can compare all the info. It is sweet!! We went harder and faster today and kept my heart rate lower!!! 12 miles total Avg MPH of 19.8mph!
