Inspired by the Steve Miller song, Fly Like an Eagle, I decided to ride for speed today. It was a spur of the moment choice. I had a good feeling rolling out of my drive way. I was over 18mph in a short time, so I kept the pedal(s) to the metal and roared out of town.
There was a two-mile stretch on the way out in which I lost precious tenths of a mile per hour, but I more than made up for it with the wind at my back. I went from 17.6mph at my turn around to 20.0mph at the end. It was glorious.
Can't wait to ride again tomorrow.
