D2D Eve

Respect. That's the first word that comes to mind when I think of the D2D's route. Pain & Suffering are the next two words. Work Hill, Wind & Tide, Picnic Point, Switchback, & St. Andrews. 4 hills & a Monster. Respect. So instead of eating more, drinking a beer, or working out, I stop eating, hydrate, and rest my legs out of Respect for tomorrow's ride... Saturday's 31 miler was probably the most fun I've had on a bike yet. When it comes to cycling on roads (with cars) I am a cowardly neophyte, but somehow riding out in Snohomish there is hope for my phobia. My riding partner was tired? That's because he set the U.S. Record for time on D2D the day before. Sub-38 minutes. Impressive! My goal is to be under 40 min comfortably every ride over the next three months this winter. Last word for tomorrow's ride. Excitement!
