Now that I'm "between contracts", I'm getting out for rides on some of my old routes. Today I did the ride to Granville and 71st via UBC, which is just under 60 kms round trip (see my old post for a map). I used to do a lot of 2 hour rides. I'm doing the same rides 5 to 15 minutes slower than I used to. I shouldn't really be surprised, I guess, that I can't ride as fast at 53 as I could at 40, but it still hurts.
Whinging aside, it was a beautiful, sunny day, and not cold by my standards.
