Slowest Ride Ever or Paris II/2011

16.17 miles in 1h 23 mins. That's an average of 11.7 miles per hour. This is quite possible the slowest ride I ever did... aside from mountain biking.

For the first time ever, I rode up and over Paris and back. From the house, that's a little over 16 miles... Slow and hard miles.... 2,545 feet of climbing anyone?? It certainly was a great workout, especially since I was once again pressed for time.... That's a lot of bang for the buck.

Things that I am doing differently next time: dress better for the temps (I was completely overdressed today) and bring a camera... There were some stunning views on the way.

The only problem with stopping for pictures on the way? I am worried that I won't be able to get going again, once I stopped.

Up next? Doing this twice in the same workout. Oh boy!


  1. Umm. Yeah 12-14 is pretty good for me haha. :) I would like to ride PM but clearly I need to invest in a real road bike.
