30 Days of Biking

M-hill - Rapid City, SD
Did you sign up for 30 days of biking? It's in April and the event started a couple days ago. I feel a little guilty because I rode on the first (Bulldog) then I didn't ride on the 2nd. I was planning to but got busy with work and activities after and I never had the chance to hop on the bike. I fell asleep and woke up the next morning mad at my missed opportunity. So, what I'm going to do is ride my bike for 30 days starting yesterday... or I'll go for an extra day at the end of April. Something anyway.

Today I brought my bike with me and rode M-hill in the middle of town. There was a rather large fire about a month ago that burned a lot of the grassland on the East side. The sun climb was affected as well as a few others. The fire was almost a blessing though. Green grass is poking through the burnt stuff and it looks fantastic.

My ride was just under an hour and I traveled around 5.5 miles or so. I went up then down, then up then down then up then down... I was trying to do as much climbing as I could. I can tell I'm getting stronger. The saying is true, it doesn't get easier, you just get faster.
