My legs need a lot more conditioning to be worthy of that ride. Climbing makes for a much stronger rider so it was good to get started on hills right away. Thanks, Mike!
After a ride like yesterday, calorie replacement is important. But when the weather gets hot, food becomes rather unappealing especially heavy foods. It's been warm for several days so I've been eating more foods raw or foods that don't need much cooking.
I like to eat whole fat yogurt often because of the live cultures. Today the yogurt is served over mango as a treat, after riding to Jamestown. One mango is about $1 so it's a treat I'll spread over a few days with yogurt.
Yes, that is a Tabasco place mat because it's a Louisiana product and I'm from Louisiana. I love Tabasco! It sits atop an antique table my aunt gave me years ago. They're all a little bit of home.
