It was the first long road ride of the season and it was done on the steel touring bike. It's heavy.
As I was approaching a cross street six or so miles into the ride, a roadie went speeding by. When I got to the corner and looked up, I could see he was not riding that fast. I'm thinking "his first day out also". The Jr. High feeling of wanting to chase kicked in and I upped my cadence for a couple of minutes. Luckily, I came to my senses, pulled over and took a couple of photos till he was well out of sight. I really don't like that feeling of, I have to catch up.
Before that, another rider and I passed each other on the Phoenix MUP in Fairhaven. I said hello and he just looked. I don't wear a kit or a helmet and I really think he took offense with the look I got from him.
I have been doing lots of fitness over the last couple of months but it wasn't bike stuff. I was in and out of the biking zone mentally for the whole ride and when I was out of the zone I was struggling. In the zone, time passes unnoticed. and riding is a breeze. Speaking of breezes, I'm pretty sure that's was kept knocking me out of the zone. The wind gust were pretty stiff at times. But as I approached the neighborhood I felt like I accomplished something. But my first though entering the house........Woe is me.
