i think the church looks nicer when you don't know the interstate is right on the other side. this is pflug road looking west. got 73miles on sunday. my house, mopac, platte, southbend, schramm, glass church, capehart road, bellevue, wallmart, freshly cooked veggie stirfry. 14.6 average for 5hrs riding. almost 30minutes off the bike, peeing, taking pictures, talking to mk, eating...so with the 30minutes added then that's 13.3 average. made me feel a bit more confidence for the end of the month. i did have a stong south wind. which was tail some and crossing strong some. but i felt good thinking i might actually be able to break down the event into 4 80milers. give or take. ouch. i've been thinking about it alot in increasing detail. spose that's what i need to do. i had the 1.8's up to 55psi. more crossy but still comfy and not bad on fresh big gravel.
