Sanger Chase Ride

Ride to Sanger with the Sharon group. I was 22 mins late leaving the house, so I told them not to delay the start time. They waited 5-6 mins for me at Hwy 377 and Bonnie Brae. It was a hard push to catch up, and Sharon pushed hard once I got in sight.

Unfortunately, this sort of punished/burned out some of the others as well, especially Jim F. Jim tried to hang on, but at the end he finally admitted he needed to work his way up to this length of ride. He completed it, but with our waiting, it was 2-3 hours extra. That being said, for being about 3 months post-op for hip replacement, he’s doing awesome.

Becky took the SAG wagon back from lunch because of other committments.  Karl took it because he broke a drive-side spoke in the middle where it’d been notched by the chain about 2000 miles ago.

Sunday – Moar Miles

Phil, Glenn, Becky, Karl and I puttered up to Denton, had breakfast at Cartwright’s Ranch House on the square (very affordable), and came back. It’s tough to ride 2 days in a row, but there’s a Strava Challenge to meet!

Cartwright’s after food:

Lots of silly bike lean photos, some of which are online at:

Bike 4 Bears

We sort of did the 30 mile route, but avoided hilltop, and added miles off-route. Also, includes the ride to and from Bikes Plus. Ride support included snacks, water and ice at the mid point, and the same plus gatorade, chips, cookies, beer, BBQ and burritos at the end.

Also, adjusted my max HR. With the new (better) strap, and a year later, I’m not hitting 191 BPM. I’m peaking around 180. Based on DigiFit, that’s pretty close to my calculated MHR (191.5 − [0.007 × Age2] ). That may change as things heat up though.
