Shakedown Ride 2017

For a number of reasons we are getting a late start on our 2017 bicycling season. We cleaned, checked, and lubricated the bikes, pumped up the tires, and set off for a short local ride. The bikes performed perfectly, and Judy did very well. My legs felt good, but my shoulders and arms ached, and my heart and lungs were on strike, a concern, because we are signed up for the BikeMaine Pathway to the Peaks tour in September, a week long tour of 355 miles, averaging 55 miles a day, with 16,432 feet of elevation gain! We have some work to do!

Weather: 82°F, sunny
Terrain: flat to rolling
Distance: 6.89 mi
Speed: (avg) 11.08mph; (max) 21.91mph;

If you're familiar with Veloroutes profiles, they tend to make flat courses look challenging, so I doctored it to resemble more closely our actual route.
