Finally got outside last week. My first century of the season was a ride to Champaign to visit brother Larry. It looks like the winter rides on the stationary at the rec center kept me in shape. Did the ride in under 6 hours. Unfortunately this week weather prediction is rain and cool weather so it looks like awhile before another outside bike trek. The good thing about the Champaign ride was there were no close calls, no drivers cussing me and the weather was perfect.
On another note, an individual from Chicago commented when he found out I biked across the country stated to my wife, "he doesn't look like a bicyclist. He looks like a football player". I don't know if that was a compliment or a criticism. I guess maybe I should shed my natural physique and try to be more like Lance Armstrong!!
