The weather looks good. It’s going to be dry, somewhat warm, and windy. The bike is cleaned and lubricated. My cycling clothes are clean. The gels made. I’m all set to go.
The first century of the season, the Pacific Populaire, is tomorrow. I feel like one of the golfers awaiting a late afternoon, weekend start time at the Masters.
I have 2 goals for the day. First, finish strong and safely. This will be my first event since the high-speed crash last September. And secondly, I want to finish, and be home, to watch back nine play at the 2017 Masters. The ride begins at 9:00 AM, and is 100 km in length. That means I need to average 25 kph to be home in time 😂
