Like a child who receives a new toy and wants everyone to see it and ooh/ahh and play with it incessantly - I couldn't resist a second ride after dinner tonight. It was still against the dastardly wind and starting to get kind of dim at the end. So after I showed my husband how I clip in and out (disappointed he didn't ooh and ahh), I took off for another 6.3 miles. I wanted to go further, but I didn't have my lights (their on the mountain bike) and I had minimal reflectivity. I did take a water bottle this time. Yay me! Felt like I pedaled hard, but my speed was actually a tad slower (though still faster than on my mountain bike).
