I finally went biking along Boomer Lake today! I'd been trying to for three months now, and something always came up when I thought I had the opportunity. It was good to finally go!
Except that the ride kicked my ass. For real.
It's about a four mile loop, but I can't tell for sure because all the mapping sites seem to lack trails, so I can't know for sure. I did the loop twice, once going on a mile or so jet off and back. I biked for 50 minutes, probably less than 10 miles, and I'm pooped! It's like I haven't ridden a bike in a month! Want to know the truth? I haven't gotten on my bike to bike outside in about 3 weeks, so I guess it's not far off. The ONLY bike at the gym is like this: So, perhaps I've been training the wrong part of the muscle all winter long. I don't know what the reason is, but I'm getting worried about my biking. I'm going to have to figure out how to ensure I have daylight while juggling a non-conventional work schedule and a long distance relationship. This should be interesting. Any tips? Also, anyone know of any sites that will map trails and routes off of roads? I don't mean just being able to go off road, but actually have the trail information in the database?
