2013-11-16 0900 Saturday TX Flyers

A ride from home Mark’s house, then car to Flower Mound (Downing Middle School), then out to the coffee shop on 377 in Argyle, then back to Downing. Most of the other riders had 30+ prior to meeting up, so being fresh, I was in the front with one of the faster riders. I think if I’d ridden from 7:30am, I wouldn’t have made it. :)

Second ride with the flyers. Hung back with the slower half of the no-drop. Katy S. was sort of the ride lead for this subgroup. We lost the front group, but it was a good time. Mark got lost after following an unrelated group accidentally, but made it back just after dark. Fuzzy’s was iPhone tech support, and some after-meal conversations with Norm, and a few others whose names I can’t remember.

I also found out that the 7:30am Saturday ride has a social/B Group, which appeals to me greatly.

Wednesday night TX Flyers social ride. Huffing and puffing… drenched in sweat. Couldn’t keep up with the front group, but wasn’t the very last person on the ride either. Met several people who were nice and had good conversations, but as usual, my name retention will fail me.

Still having issues with max cadence, even when I use the FIT Fix tool. I’m retraining myself to rest left foot forward, so I only had 2 ridiculous spikes this time. I have the GPS set to warn me if my cadence is over 150rpm also, which helps retrain.
