Let the cycling season begin

So I’m just about ready to head out and do the Salem Monster Cookie, a metric century (60 miles) that takes you from Salem, Oregon north towards Portland, OR. It’s a nice easy ride that’s always a fun way to kick off the riding season. As past practice, a few of us will be turning this metric century into a true century by padding 20 miles to the beginning and end of the ride. And what do you get for finishing — why a monster cookie of course. đŸ™‚

This will be new for me this year — I decided to take the recumbant on the ride, so we’ll have to see how that goes. The farthest I’ve ever ridden on the recombant is about 70 miles, so I’m curious to see how this feels over the course of 100 miles.

I’ll drop everyone a quick note after I’m done…
