first week of training done and finally a real bike ride outdoors... weather, work, health, and travel had all consipired against me for the first couple of weeks of the year and as of this friday i had yet to do a real bike ride outside in the elements. this weekend took care of that with a good long road ride in the sun on saturday and a shorter ride in the rain on sunday. saturday was a great day -- good pace, just the right distance for this time of year, good weather, and a great group. sunday was a short solo recovery ride, wet and cold, but it felt good to be out there braving the elements instead of giving in and riding the trainer, and it's not so bad when you've got a nice warm house to come home to.
