It’s -15F outside so I’m back on the trainer. I finished Stage 7 with burned up legs and a two speed bike when rear derailleur gave out leaving me with just the front two rings. I felt like I was holding my own until I hit the hills and lost position grinding away in a high gear. I’ll count it as a good training day.
Having neglected the great outdoors right outside my door for the past month I could no longer continue in my wayward course and ignore the Beargrease. We spent and afternoon playing in perfectly groomed snow thanks to the volunteer groomers who leave waffles for us all to enjoy. The timing was perfect as a new storm dumped another foot of sugary, white powder on us
In the latest Tour de Zwift you can’t start late which is fair. It is a bit of a challenge for those of us who don’t handle schedules very well. To compensate, I started the ride and then let my avatar chill whilst the world whooshed by and in the real world I finished all the logistical items that consume the days of my life.

With legs still whining from yesterday I managed to join the C ride today that was a short jaunt around the Champs-Elysees. I rode in circles around Paris for an hour and a half. Someday it would be fun to do it for real but dodging the traffic would be a nightmare. The ride – Zwift The bike – Trek Madone 6.9
I woke up and thought I’d just ride for an hour. I made it in time for the Zwift Stage 3 ride not realizing that it was 15 miles of mostly up. After passing the gate I figured I was almost there so I determined to finish the Ven-Top route not realizing that I was pretty much burned up and that the top was still
