Tonight I went to Buckhead to ride hills. The only other person to show up was G, and he very patiently waited at all of the turns for me.
My legs felt like rubber going to and from school, and I felt no better getting there. I was pleased that the hills weren't as bad as I expected, which isn't to say I wasn't super pokey: it just could have been a lot worse. And, the stats weren't as bad as I expected, either.
Maximum speed: 35.9 mph
Average speed: 14.5 mph
Distance: 17.68 mi
I won't lie, I started counting down the miles starting around mile 5. Gotta keep doing it until I stop hating it. It's gonna be a while.
