Still riding the bike. I commuted to work on Thursday. My thighs got really tired. Yesterday I did a 14 mile ride during "Bicycle Sunday" on Lk Washington. All was cool until a five-year-old blew by me on a his little bicycle. I was completely humiliated.
Someone on Bike Forums asked what I plan to do about it...I'll keep riding. Build strength, endurance and speed. Then go back to Bicycle Sunday and wipe the floor with that little b*****rd.
