I tried to atone for being such a slacker this week and logged about 44 miles yesterday and 28 today. Today’s ride was part of the MUSEP series. The weather was sketchy and there was no ride leader, so we had 23 people negotiating how far and how fast. The consensus was that no one would get dropped, but that was a little harder to do than say, particularly since we were making up the route as we went along. Into that 28 miles we crammed a lot of starting and stopping, some rain, and intermittent heavy traffic and pissed off drivers.
