My first bicycle race
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Read/Post Comments (3)

Today was my first bicycle race.

My first bicycle race was:

Sanctioned by the United States Cycling Foundation (I had to buy a license).
An event in the Bluegrass State Games (I got a t-shirt).
Not easy (I got lapped).

And my first bicycle race was:

At the Coldstream Research Campus (named after the farm that it displaced, like a lot of the campuses, subdivisions and shopping “centres” in Lexington).
A loop that ended with a left turn into a headwind at the top of a hill (insult+injury, you’re familiar with the expression).
Kinda fun despite that (and despite the fact that I got lapped again).

In my first bicycle race, I:

Maintained the highest average speed I ever have over the course of a single ride.
Didn’t win.
Didn’t finish last.
Did finish.
