Sunday: 28km bike ride

It was a beautiful day.  Sunny and warm.  I decided to go for a nice bike ride.  Nothing too intense, just keeping things moving.

I did an out and back from my house to the nearby town of Grafton.

You can take  look on it on Strava.

The highest elevation of the ride is the point where I turned around (North Street Elementary School).  I pushed a bit harder going out than coming back.  About half way along I saw a rider up in the distance and the lure of catching up to him was irresistible.   It took me until the second to last hill up on the way out before I passed him, and then he drafted along behind me until I turned off at the school.  I got the impression he was going on a much longer ride that I was, but it was fun having someone to try to catch.

It was 28km, done in about 65 minutes for an average speed of about 26km/h.

Tomorrow:  2 x 1000 / 10 minute rest
