Shower Hill

Wow, that shower felt great today. I certainly earned it. I did a training ride for the Tour de Victoria. I wanted to get a longer ride in, and so I headed out with a couple buddies that do a lot more riding than I.

Here is the route:

Awesome ride though. The weather held off nicely and I felt strong until I was a couple kms from the house. I probably should have dove into my second Cliff Bar while I was still riding. Things I need to learn. Oh and the only time I didn’t feel so great when when I left the house a little late and sprinted over to a buddies house on a full tummy of eggs and toast. When I stopped moving my tummy complained a little.

I broke off from T at Willis Point Road. He was heading up and over into the Highlands and I didn’t think I could make it. I was also running short on time. Instead I climbed up the hill on Willis Point Rd, then turned around and made my way home.

From the stats below you can see that I did pretty good. I got some good distance in, and a decent avg speed. I’d like to bump up the avg speed, but that will come as I train more.
