Ride to Finchville
The ride went really well. I averaged about 15mph. The wind was in my favor for about one third of the trip. I was impressed with how well my legs held up. I haven't had many long rides recently, so was a little leery of whether or not my body would want to go the full distance, but it was all good.
The LHT was GREAT. Most of my long rides have been on the Cross Check... and I'd feel some pain. The LHT didn't give me any of the hand numbness or back pain that I used to feel on it's more road geometry'd brother. I was very pleased.
Overall, it was a great weekend and a great ride. I'm so thankful the weather came on a weekend that allowed me to get on the bike. It couldn't have been better planned.
Get out there.
