Ride to the Stars
Yea, I know that's a lame title. I rode to the Louisburg Observatory and back. Pretty neat, and a lot smaller than I would have thought. I even stopped to take a few pics like my buddy SC. He's quite the blogger, you know.
It was a really fun ride, despite being into a 20mph headwind the first half of the ride. I just took it easy, figuring to save a little for the trip back home. Lap 1 avg was 15.5, lap 2 was 19.7. I'm actually surprised lap 2 was slow like that. Seemed faster at least. Anyway, it was a great ride, and didn't get chased by any dogs or breezed by any cars. Not much traffic. It'd probably be better if I could get out around 6am and do this ride. Probably less wind, even less traffic, and a little cooler. I'll be needing that soon.
If the weather cooperates, I'll be trying my first crit tonight. We'll see. Doesn't look promising.
