The Tour de Cure was a good test to see just how ready I would be for the big ride I am planning in mid-July the Seattle to Portland ride. While there was not the elevation gain that I will have on the STP, there were many hours in the saddle and of course many miles. I was very pleased with my results. I was tired at the end, but, not exhausted. As a matter of fact I was pleasantly surprise at how much stronger my legs were than two years ago when I did the same length. I knocked off 20 minutes off my time from 2012.
I plan to put in many long rides over the next 5 weeks while I finish my training for the STP. Look forward to catching up with you all now. Take care and TTFN,
