Saturday Bike Ride

So after my huge accident I finally got my bike back. I needed a new fork (the bar that holds the front tire on the bike) and so after a few weeks my brother Tony received one for free and got my bike back to working. My brother Tony called on Friday and asked if I wanted to come up and go on a training ride for our St. George trip. So Saturday morning early I packed my bike up and headed to Sandy. What I didn't know about the bike ride was that he planned to ride for three hours. Tony, Karen (Tony's girlfriend), JJ and Scott Seare and I set out on just after nine.
Here is a map of the ride. It is pretty accurate but might be a few roads off.

I road 29 miles in about three hours. It was so windy yesterday, which didn't make the ride easy. The wind was 15 miles per hour and so at times I felt like I wasn't moving forward. The ride went well and I am sore. Thanks to Fierce Grape Gatorade, goo gel, and candies made for biking, and a LOT of water I am feeling pretty good. Bring on St. George!!

Holy crap! That layout of what you rode looks so long! Good job getting through it.

The cake was a smashing HIT with my family. Thanks for letting me call a ton. And ya, had to run to the store 2 more times after I talked to you. Stupid blonde memory.
