but I am too tired to say much. Photos will have to suffice.
We did a wonderful 85-mile ride up at my new favorite riding road Silverado Trail (very similar to IM AZ in terms of flat to gradual elevation changes and wind).
It was so foggy when we started, you could barely see the hills and couldn’t see the mountains.
I brought fast men to chase this time.
Occasionally they let me get close before they took off again.
So I spent a lot of time amusing myself. And eating, eating, eating. I think I took in about 3x as many calories as the guys.
Eventually, on our second loop, the sun did come out.
We went up a random hill, just because I was curious.
I’m not sure the guys were as amused with my side trip.
We ended our day at the nearby Silverado Brewing Company. I’d promised the guys I would drive them to and from Napa, plus a trip to the brewpub, if they rode with me. I ordered a spinach salad and a lamb burger, minus the bun, and combined them for a fairly healthy and very pretty recovery meal!
Now, time to sleep. Because – oops – I forgot I have a swim race tomorrow!
