Are You Ready?

Last year, not knowing what to expect on the ride, I was over prepared. This turned out to be great, though: I was able to have fun on the ride, lead a lot of drafting lines, and do harder events later in the year. This year, I have not had as much time to prepare, but I still feel ready.

Yesterday, J and I did 50 mile ride up to the Crystal Springs Reservoirs. Today, in an effort to practice back-to-back days on the saddle, I'm going try this ride out to the Pacific. Riding these distances is very liberating; with planning, I can basically travel anywhere in the Bay area without relying on anything other than my bike and my own legs.
