When I get on my custom Serotta Rapid Tour bike and get out on a ride I feel great. I forget all my problems and excuses of why I do not have time to ride and I enjoy my ride. This is when I repeat my slogan in my head “Shut Up and Ride”.
Today I went to the Wild Flower Velloway in south Austin and rode 4 laps. Each lap is about 3 miles. I rode the first lap slow and relaxed, then I sprinted the next two laps and finished the last 1.5 miles slow. The velloway is a great place to train for speed and still be off the road away from cars. I like to spint until I am really tired and then ride to simulate a long ride.
