I headed out with Kevin to Valparaiso for the Sertoma Club ride on Saturday. We ended up doing the 70 mile loop (with minimal tongue in cheek b****ing from Kevin about riding that far) - second longest ride I've ever done. The weather was great, although a bit windy as we rode north from Seward. We joined up with Steve, Craig, and Tami for a while to take turns pulling into the cross wind, but mostly rode by ourselves. It didn't seem like a very big turn out - maybe 50-60 riders. Too bad, as it was a good day to ride and a mostly fun route - especially the last 14 miles through the Bohemian Alps (fortunately, with the wind).
I was happy to be able to do the ride pretty much pain free - although either I need to adjust my saddle slightly or I need to look for one with a slightly different shape to help solve some numbness issues. I currently ride a Fizik Aliante - I may give a Specialized Toupe or Alias a try.
