Bike Charlotte

Biking in Charlotte, NC

Me and my CatEye

Joining me on every ride is my cycling computer. My buddy, my friend, when I’m going good, mocking me, when there’s a brutal headwind.

Early on in the ride, I decide what average speed I want to accomplish that day. The computer duly let’s me know how I’m doing, if the speed is achievable, are my legs keeping up.

It’s a game we play, or else you’re spinning endlessly, round the same trails, never knowing if you’re improving or not. I guess that’s why some people pick up a bike for exercise and give up after a while, they must get bored.

MTB: distance 19.38 miles, average speed 13.2 mph.
