Yesterday, I went for a simple 35 mile with my friend Jim Montgomery in Maryland (adjoining Delaware).
We did 14 miles to the town of North East in Maryland. Billiard-board smooth roads.
Had lunch at Woody's Crab House. Famous for blue crabs from Chesapeake Bay.
I was toying with several hypothetical situations during some of the more boring miles of the Transcontinental. One of them goes something like this.
If someone said to me: "Sandiway, you can quit your job. All you have to do is ride 100 miles before lunch every day. You can do whatever you want (in addition) after lunch but you have to put in those 100 miles first," would I do it?
The answer is emphatically NO. I love cycling but I guess I'm just not RAAM material.
