It’s a hill. Get over it.

This ride is just a few weeks away. Where did all the time go? Unlike last summer, I wasn’t obsessed with getting in my training rides. Unlike my neighbor, I’m not disciplined enough to go out for a 20-mile loop no matter how late it is (and having done it with her one Friday night, I can say it’s in the dark).

Nope, it’s been mostly Citi Bike (let’s say their weight and general clunkiness means each mile counts more. Humor me.) and spin class. So I was thrilled that the Sourland Spectacular ride — 35 miles of hills through the Sourland Mountain forest and the scene of many of last year’s training rides — was pretty easy, 12 hours after that fast ride with the neighbor. I did it on my road bike, which helped. Definitely doing the flatter East Coast Greenway ride with it.

Got to love the T-shirt message from the ride. Take it whichever way you like. And now to cram in some more rides.
