I went on an early morning ride with Ben Cooper today. The weather was unusually pleasant for late July in Texas, with temperatures in the low 70’s and less-than-brutal humidity. Ben was on his new Kuota machine which makes it even harder to stay on his wheel.
I rode about 25 miles (Ben rode a bit further) and averaged right at 18mph. We kept it above 22mph on most of the flats.
I’m always glad when I make the effort to get up early and work out. It’s a great start to the day and it frees up time for family in the evenings.
