Great >20mph ride!
riding on road for the first time since the bike fit change. Felt really good, had my first ride over 20mph without a draft to help since I moved to Maryland! After this ride, now I know I can deal with the fit for longer rides in the future. Did have some issues breathing though. Perhaps after being in DRY DRY DRY Wyoming since Monday the humidity got to me?
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
