Neither my usual Tuesday Group nor the group I occasionally ride with on Sundays has gone out for a few weeks because of all the rain we’ve had. But yesterday we had beautiful sunny skies so I went on a nice outing with the Sunday group. We did a challenging two and a half hours, with climbs both on the East side of town (up Thomas Grade and through the Holiday lake neighborhood) and the West side (up Willow springs then back through Paradise valley on Oak Glen Ave). These folks are faster than me, especially in the hills, so I rode my e-assist bike so I could keep up.
Average heart rate 124, max 159. Good workout
