One of the hardest rides of my life
Back in June Bjet and I joined teammates Mott Sauce and Big Ring Pike for an epic journey. We rode to Pike's Dad's house in Louisville following Underground Railroad routes.
Wow, it was really cool to go point to point. I typically just ride a big loop. The ride was pretty tough, we hit some headwinds before taking a lunch break in Madison, Indiana. The winds were killing my neck, back and triceps. Then a bit more wind and rollers kicked my ass towards the end of the ride. I wigged out and got so flustered that I could no longer hold I wheel — I stepped off my bike and threw it... Yeah, not pretty.
I hope I was just not recovered from Mohican and 12 Hours of Capitol View. I was really whooped.
On a side note, I would love to turn this into a multi-day trip. Madison is a cool little college town, and Louisville is always fun.
