After taking yesterday off the bike the legs felt primed this morning. Churned seventy miles at a 19.5 mph average – just below the point of discomfort. The new Red Dragon bike (thank you Revolution Bicycles) is fast and forgiving. Several times along this morning’s route I smiled and thought to myself, “I’m a lucky guy.” Thanks to all of you who are following my journey with Team Red Dragon. Your words of encouragement make a huge difference and help get me “out the door” each morning. Two months from tomorrow I’ll be straddling the starting line in Oceanside for RAAM 2018.
