Big Ride Eve

Evangeline at Agate PassTomorrow morning around 7am, I launch on Part Two of the Broken Ironman, the double metric century bike ride. 200K equals 124 miles, a good 40 miles longer than the longest training ride I’ve done. It’s the Chuckanut Century out of Bellingham, Washington. It’s gorgeous up here and the weather is perfect. I’m feeling a wee bit nervous, but I’m just going to turn the pedals over, groove on the vistas up to Canada and down toward the San Juan Islands, stay hydrated and ride rest stop-to-rest stop. David joins me for the first segment and from then on I’ll be making new friends.

Thanks pals, for the encouragement, the cycling wisdom and how-to, and the training rides! Stand by for photos and stories…
