After missing three weeks, I was able to get back to riding with my local Morgan Hill group yesterday. It was great, I had missed the camaraderie and the incentive to go harder. We went out to the beautiful Redwood retreat road and back. It was tougher than I expected. I had ridden this ride in the past with the group with no issues, but I hadn’t been riding my upright as much. My recumbent has electric assist, and I thought I had been working hard enough, just riding faster with the assist. But with assistance, you can always dial in a little more help when the going gets tough, like on a hill or into a headwind. Today there were plenty of both challenges, with no assistance. Not having electric assist keeps me honest!
