wanted to ride in Suffolk. the group had a 60 miler planned. i talked Pedro into riding with me. told him will only do 30 miles at C pace. started off very chilly and windy. since the group was doing B pace, we told them to ride ahead. after a few miles, Pedro couldn’t hang. he had shortness of breath from the cold and being out of shape. He wanted me to go ahead. I elected to ride back with him. He felt bad but i told him we just started off too fast. He then wanted to ride at Dismal Swamp. I agreed. Rode right into the headwind going south. out and back is 16 miles. decided to work on cadence. it was nice going back in the big gear. during a 2 mile stretch i was averaging 20mph. all in all it was a nice day for a ride.
