The Roaming Rides have been going on for a month and there are two constants to contend with: hills and wind. The former is by design and the latter by chance. But together they make the rides a little more strenuous than in past years.
Tonight we headed over to the north side of Greensboro, an area that I’ve begun to avoid. I’m averse to bad tempered drivers, you know. But I put aside my reservations and we started off from Christ Community Church (thanks for the parking privileges!) on Air Harbor Rd. The route follows several rolling roads; none of the climbs is particularly tough although they begin to add up over the course of the ride, particularly if you’re trying to maintain a steady pace like we were.
Total for the night: 22.1 miles.
