    An example of taking the lane on a narrow country road. When a truck was coming up behind me, a car was coming in the opposite direction. Which does not leave enough safe clearance for the truck to pass me. So I moved out in the center of the lane to prevent the truck from passing me until the car had passed.
    20 seconds into the video.

    I can't imagine 25 miles of nonstop climbing! I would die after about the first 5!!! Give me some more time to get a bit better. I may know tomorrow if I am buying the bike I am looking at... TrekDomane 5.2 c WSD 2013 .. wish me luck! Today was a great ride, winds were so moderate... only about 15mph.. next to nothing! It was a nice reprieve. Rode 24 miles with my best average speed yet of 16. I actually got up to 25.4 on a flat straight stretch .. never thought I could do that! Getting stronger all the time. Some day I may actually be able to keep up with the group! Wishful thinking, I know.

    @Tammie. Now you can come to Colorado and do Ride the Rockies with me.
    Only 473 miles this year. First day is easy. Only 89 miles. One section of 25 miles of nonstop climbing. And another section of 30 miles of nonstop climbing. And than a high speed descent into Winter Park.

    Monday was my first ride in two weeks due to being ill. I just wanted an easy 30 mile ride.
    Extremely high winds. Riding with the wind was fun. Riding into the wind was painful. It was great to be out again.

    speak for yourself.. I feel like shouting from the rooftops!~ I have been enjoying a carbon bike for the past week and today I conquered a hill that has been a bear to me... not that bad really but two miles uphill.. not much of a rise really just always have my friend at the top doing circles waiting on me.. Well, NOT TODAY. When we got to the top he was BEHIND ME!!
