I woke up early today and went for a ride on Bee Caves Road between Loop 360 and HYW 71 in Austin, Texas. I read on the Internet that Lance Armstrong won the final time trials with an average speed of 29 MPH. That is the speed that I go when I am going downhill.

I’m gradually building up my stamina so that I can ride longer distances. Today I did 17 miles and averaged 14.8 MPH. It was very humid and I watched the sweat drip on my bike as it fell from my forehead. It was a fun ride.
