Got out on the SDBC "B" Ride

I rode the "B" ride on Saturday.

Joel Price, who I met through this blog came out. After what seems like a year of talking about it, this was the first time we've gotten to get out on the road together. No matter what Joel tries to tell you, he's a strong guy. He definitely has the power to do well in races if he chooses to race one day.

From my side, I haven't been doing a lot of riding lately. With my parents having been down for a week and me feeling a little burned out, I've been avoiding my bike. It was definitely a little rough for me at times, but in general a really good ride. I was able to push things on the flats and do pretty well on most of the hills. I'm definitely lacking some muscular endurance for hills like Torrey Pines.

Thanks for the kind words. However, the truth... I was just holding on after Las Colinas. I didn't play that too smart it took me a few miles to get back under control. Being my first SDBC ride I was watching you move around the group and that was pretty cool to see. At every burst, you seemed to know the best spot, while I got pinched into the gutter and needed to claw my way back to your wheel. I really enjoyed the ride, it was fun.

As far as racing, I want to do it, but I need to get over some fears. It's not so much about crashing as it is the commitment. It's in my head and that’s for another discussion. What would be a good "first-time" race coming up?

Thanks again for the friendly invite.
