Firsts

A few first today:

  • 23 miles ride. First time I rode over 20 miles. Not as exhausting as I anticipated but my legs were pretty shot for the last 6 miles. Still managed to maintain an average of 16 mph though.
  • New road tires (Continental Grand Prix 4000S) are a success! Less rolling resistance but almost as compliant as the stock cycle-cross tires. Though I can no longer ride through loose gravels with impunity like before.
  • New base layer from Under Armour I wore under my short sleeves jersey. It kept me warm at the beginning of the ride in morning but didn’t make me overheat at the end when the temperature rose to low 20s with bright sun. This should keep me warm for my morning rides until a proper jacket is needed.
