So we embarked on our first dedicated ironman ride... it was nothing to brag about, but we will anyway. Our first "long" ride was 18.1 miles. It took us 1:20, but that was probably because we ran into several stoplights, crossroads in the path, and even one bathroom break. All in all, not bad.
It was about 45 degrees today when we left. We decided that one of the hardest things about this ride (besides actually figuring out where we were going) was dressing appropriately. We started the ride near frozen and then 20 minutes in we were boiling. Neither one of us are cold-weather people, so that's going to make this winter awfully tough. We'll make it though (...we think).
