Going for Gold – Week 3   Leave a comment

Week three of my preparation for the 2010 Golden Triangle tour started off cold.
I got in a decent 20K bike ride on Sunday April 11th on the northside Rundle Park loop. The mid-afternoon weather was sunny but the temperature was just above freezing. My fingers were cool (wearing full gloves of course) and my toes ended up numb.
The well below normal  temperatures ruled out any evening rides this week until I got out on Friday April 16th for a  41K ride up to Hermitage Park and back on the south side of the river to the LRT bridge.
On Saturday April 17  I did a short  but sweet ride of just  20K up McKinnon Ravine and back. It was the first ride of the season on bike #3, my road bike. This is my oldest bike, the one I used for my my first tour in France (the Loire and Normandy). These days its stripped down, with clip-in pedals and 100 psi clinchers – lots of fun for a quick workout!

At the end of week three I have put in 318 Kilometers of  road training.
