Last night's ride was a "blue" ride to support spousal abuse or some such thing - I fail to see how a free ride for essentially elite cyclists raises awareness for much of anything, but hey you can't put down the cause so I should probably just put a sock in it. The long and the short of it is that I only really cranked up on the way home, which got pretty scary since everybody had fresh legs with the wind behind them. I was in a scary-big group going 29 and finally just had to take it down a notch out of concern for life and limb. Wound up with a 23.1 mph average, not at all bad considering I only paced half the ride. Then home for szechuan noodles, some Photoshop-ing, a conversation with Jenelle, and that was that. Oh oh oh and got big news from the Big House as the work day wound down. Nothing like free money...it is the best kind.
