Tour de Norfolk
I got the chance to ride hundreds of k’s today with three pretty awesome girls… one is my favorite, but I’m not saying who.
Within the first 2k, my back tire had basically exploded. More like started to disintegrate. Either way, 2k in and I was already holding us up. 40 minutes later, our supposed 5 hours of flat 98 k’s was underway. It was the third leg-numbing hill that I realized our 5 hours of k’s wouldn’t quite cover 100 of them.
6.5 hours later of laughs, great sights, grimaces, butt complaints, tour stops, non-tour stops, more hills, hearing we’re the last 4 of 5 riders still out, getting stopped by race director and told if we stay on the 100k route we’d miss the spaghetti lunch provided, going with the 100k anyway, getting stalked by said race director (actually a really nice guy) for the rest of ks to make sure we were okay, and then him telling us with 6k left that they saved some ice cream for us… it was a pretty awesome, and rather painful, day.
I do plan to ride more in the future… Once I can sit again.
