ROSAMOND GROUP RIDE - 5 October 2014
Here's a short video of me riding with the High Desert Cyclists. I was invited for this little ride by a friend. You can hear me call his name in the video.
The ride was fairly easy among all rides. But, for me it was at the limit of my abilities. After yesterday's almost maximum effort this ride was almost beyond that. Fortunately, we finished just when I probably would've had major muscle cramping problems.
The cool thing when riding with a group is the speed. When you're on the back of the group like I was you get the benefit of everyone else pushing the wind out of the way. It makes you totally understand how the Tour De France riders do so well when transferring from one epic mountain climb to the other. Instead of the leaders pushing hard on the way to the next mountain, they follow in everyone else's wake saving energy.
