Back on topic Riot! (See how easily I am distracted!?) I am definitely not a good roadie. I find the steady grind of a 40 km/hr pace for over a half an hour at a time on some sections utterly excruciating, mentally and physically. Give me hills, roots, rocks, jumps, twisty single track, and berms! I am a mountain biker!! (Or at least a wanna be!!) While the efficiency and quickness of a road bike can be intoxicating, at training paces and distances road riding sucks! It just hurts!! But it is exactly what I need to get better. So thanks Centurion and Fig for kicking my lethargic ass! Let’s make this a weekly routine?
P.S.: Yes I am still hurting today! (Monday)
Centurion was demoing a brand new 2012 S-Works Venge on this ride.
Fig made a new best friend at the Fergus Tim Horton's. The gentleman in the safety vest was thirsty for Fig's vast array of knowledge on bike mechanics!
Yours truly, pretending to look like I am enjoying this.
