What is your max speed ever? Mine is 65 but I don't rhink I will try that again. 40 to 50 is the most I want.

The wife just showed me today's Strava report for Ten Dam's ride today (she follows several of the TdF riders who post on Strava); he hit 69.1 coming down from Tourmalet. Sheesh.
The time I hit 65 I was following a semi down Mt. CHARLESTON. Insane.

"Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf
I had a good ride this am. About 46 miles into the hills. I've done the route dozens of time, but it remains one of my favorites. Took 2 new guys with us today. One was a friend that is coming off an ACL reconstruction about a year ago. He kicked all of our butts on the climbs. The other new guys was a 17 nephew of my buddy. He started the ride having already ridden 150 miles on the week. Seriously, what 17 year old does that on his summer vacation?
I'm still not climbing very well, as I haven't work very hard on getting into climbing form (or weight!!!) this year. But I felt really good on the flats and rollers. I beat the guys on the final short KOM heading back into town, which effectively nullifies the fact that they beat me by like 20 minutes on the big boy 9 mile climb.
"The spirit of contention is SO non-fabulous."
Trying to get ready for the big day so I pounded out a 120 miles yesterday. It was warm and it really was one of those days where the wind shifted and was in my face all day. It was slow, I hurt but I got a lot of saddle time which I was hoping for.
RC, that's impressive. Does your back get stiff on that long of a ride ? Do you stop and stretch ?
My lower back starts up about the same time so I may try getting out of saddle. One day last week I stopped,stood and stretched, got back on bike and back was fine. It was really fast but I'd like to not stop. I did this twice last week. On another note tomorrow will be first ride with new chain and cassette.
