Back on the Bike

April 19, 2007 at 11:44 pm (Cycling)

I have been riding quite a bit on my new bike, the Giant OCR1, women’s version. It’s essentially the same bike I had before that was ruined in the accident. This one is white and silver and much more diva-esque. I have been riding about 5 days each week, mostly rides that are between 12 and 18 miles, with two pretty long rides – a 55 miler and a 31 miler. The Wildflower Ride in Chico is on Sunday and I am supposedly riding 100 miles with my mom, weather permitting. It will be my first organized bike ride and nearly twice as long as my longest ride. I got new Pearl Izumi capris and the padding makes a world of difference from my old shorts. Riding in Coloma is fun except for the traffic, so I’m figuring out the best time of day to ride on various routes and it has been working well. The wildflowers are out right now and the weather has been perfect for riding even mid-day. I will be posting pages on different bike routes in the area and the distances.
