      I've had that feeling on occasion, too...sometimes downright terrifying. Thankfully not often... Then again, you did 13 miles...maybe go for just 12 or 14 and skip 13 like elevators...
      Nice ride! Have fun this afternoon at the Nutcracker...

      You did the right thing. There will be many days for other bike rides. Maybe the traffic was heavy and you sensed precaution was necessary. Good that you didn't push it.

      Hi everyone! Thanks Sugarmagnolia! I hope you all help keep me accountable. I really want to keep the momentum going. Just had a IT Band injury but --no excuses-- I'm planning a week of yoga and swimming, before easing back to biking and running. Hoping to be ready for Vineman 70.3 this summer. (PS Thanks Leo D. I always wanted to be Ginger though.)

      Awesome. I was impressed when I met two guys riding from British Columbia to the US/Mex boarder. I can't imagine riding through some of those countries. I'll shoot you a message on chain rings and speed.
