My tribute to a friend on a bike



I dedicated my long bike ride today to a former employee and friend, who lost his battle from cancer on Monday morning. It was a cool ride with a lot of wind resistance in the beginning of the ride. But 1/3 in my ride, I kicked some serious a**. My goal for my bike rides for the last few weeks was to go over 17 mph. I completely topped that. Not 18 mph, but at 19.1 mph. Then reality hit when I had to turn around and turn back. I managed to complete 12.09 in slightly over 53 minutes.

It made for a sweet ride today.
