    Good: Climbed 1,000 ft on a ride for the first time

    Bad: Did not know I'd be doing that much and had to take a $50 Uber back to my car

    Beat my longest ride by 50% today. Also got lost. Also crashed.

    Did my first 40 mile ride today. Last 3 miles just killed me. I basically live at the center of a bunch of trails, that all shoot off like spokes. So pretty much all of my rides are out to some point and back. Today I rode out to and up a dam. Here are a couple pictures from that:

    This is just looking back East.

    Just did this:

    Just a little 70% increase over my previous max. But this time on a 5.4% average grade and 6.8% max.

    Oh, and I did actually ride back to my bike this time (because it was all downhill).

    Today my wife was struck broadside by a hill billy in a beater truck running a stop sign. She will be OK, but I’ve never been less interested in an apology in my life. Fucking dickhead.

    No broken bones but a severe psoas strain. She can’t move without assistance from me. It’s pretty rough. Looking at wheelchairs now.
