Its Granfondo training season!

Its Granfondo training season!

The Kelowna Granfondo is only a couple of weeks away and I’ve just started to ride some big rides.  Not that I haven’t been riding but only putting in smaller, faster rides.  The Tuesday nights rides tend to be a wicked workout and some of the riders are having a problem keeping up (mostly me).  Today, I rode to Madeira Park (Pender Harbour) and ended up bonking about 110km.  When I bonk its a feeling that almost makes me cry or at least whimper.  Its mind over matter and it takes every personality trait to keep me from stopping and hitchhiking home.

I gotta learn to eat more and more often….

Next week is my 200km ride and I better learn quickly!!!!!!
