Bike training: June 6th & 7th

My bike training updates will skip weeks here and there due to a bunch of travel I have coming up, but I definitely will fill you in when I get out to ride! On June 6th I rode 66 miles mostly east from home, on a lovely day. It was my first really hot ride of the season, and the last ten miles or so were rough. I was beginning to get heat exhaustion, based on the goose bumps I had while riding and my red face when I got home. Our cooler than normal spring hasn’t helped me acclimate to our typical level of heat. Regardless, the ride was nice and I was able to average 16.4 mph.

On Sunday June 7th, I rode 32.5 miles in an out and back route on loop 360 to get in some hill training. My GoPro has been having battery issues and it immediately turned off on my Sunday ride so I wasn’t able to get any photos 😦

Not too far from home, some sort of horse competition arena. No idea what those things are really called.

It always makes me sad to see dogs in the middle of country roads.

Littig road is one of my favorites to ride out east

I believe this is a dog racing track, with the long skinny pens
