Good ride today, did some strength training. Went to my brother's house and got on the bikes, he on his single-speed, me on my Roubaix. I shifted to the same ratio as his SS and left it there, and we went to a hilly stretch of road near my sister's. Not allowing myself to grab a lower gear, I stayed in the saddle and muscled up the hills, where we would turn around and roll down and do it again. And again. And again. Great workout, need to do more as we prepare for Mt. Mitchell next month.
Of course, we had to follow this ride up by getting Dad and going to the Camden House of Pizza for some baked spaghetti!
Be blessed, be safe.
