Today was the birthday of one of my bike riding friends. He solicited volunteers to take the day off and ride around the island with him to celebrate. Four of us took him up on the offer. Total ride distance was 116 miles. Was a great ride...took plenty of breaks, most were unintended as amongst the five of us, we had 4 flat tires and a broken chain. We also took a long coffee break and several water breaks. Aside from that, we averaged around 24mph on the road.
This was my 2nd trip around the island. Previously I rode clockwise as part of a race. This time we went counterclockwise...couldn't have asked for a better day with clear skies and the wind at our back the entire time.
Beats going to work!
