Had morning meetings so I couldn’t get out in the wee hours of the morning. I paid for the delay with copious quantities of sweat. The Ripmo doesn’t like being covered in perspiration and still needs a bath. Being book ended by another meeting I was only able to ride two suffer circles which makes me feel like a bailed too soon, but also my legs and lungs were not thrilled with heat so I’ll dehydration be my excuse. I managed to get to the top in just under 53 minutes which is 12 minutes down from several of my rides last year. It hurts the same but I think I’m inching faster.
The ride – Providence Canyon
The bike – Ibis Ripmo
