I couldn't resist taking a picture of the 700 on a grass berm that I rode by today.
I planned on taking a longer ride today on the 700 but I realized I forgot my flag today. I was coming up to a section of road where I felt uncomfortable without a rag waving in the air so after about 15 miles I met Carrie to pick up my flag and ended up going to the local coffee joint with her. I was planning on doing 30 miles but in the end my ride was only 17 miles. I hadn't really got into the climbing section of my ride yet so my gain was a modest 920 feet with an average speed of 15.8 mph. The ride wasn't as long I planned but being with my beautiful wife made up for it.
