First Century Ride
Today, I was going to do my first century ride. I met up with a small group-one gal that is doing Louisville for the first time as well. The ride was really hard with the gusts of wind I'm guessing somewhere around 40 mph. We rode to Cannon Falls to ride the Cannon Valley Trail, which was closed when we got down there. We went around the closed sign and rode the trail-dodging down trees and a lot of debris from the tornado touchdown the other day; we made it seven miles down the trail before we could go any further. I think it was a blessing in disguise as the ride back was horrendous! We ended up getting in a about 77 miles which felt like a 125 miles! I'm glad to have done the ride as it was a good confidence booster.
