Rapha Festive 500, Day One, 24 December 2013

December 24, 2013

in Rides

First off, I’m not going to make the 500 km.  I’m trying for 50% of the 500.  That’d be a big enough record for me.

  • Distance:  36.0 miles
  • Total kilometers towards the Festive 500:  57.9 km
  • Low temperature: 28° F
  • Weather:  Overcast.
  • Ride:  Mostly a might ride. Scouted part of the Snowflake Century.  Legs 4 and 6 o’clock.  They need a lot of work – my legs that is.
