good 5 4 mile laps of Fiesta Island, San Diego, CA 20 mi 01:10 17.1mph pace

Just completed my first bike ride on my road bike in over two years. I'm not gonna lie; it was weird. I did 5 4-mile laps of Fiesta Island. I probably clipped out of my pedals 25 times on the first lap. Then I clipped out a couple times on the 2nd lap. By the 5th lap, I dropped some guy who was drafting me on a Time Trial bike. I have no idea how fast I went because my Cycle-computer was stuck on the 51.31 mile point which is where I had my accident in April 2010. Mostly it's my shoulder muscles that are tight -- most likely from fear-induced tension. I'm not ready for primetime but it was definitely progress considering halfway into the first lap, I was wondering if I could defer my Alcatraz entry until 2013. I was also considering calling this my "Goodbye Triathlon" race. I guess the learning is - just go with the flow and take it at a pace that is comfortable for me.
