A little quicker today. I really felt it after a week of house scraping/painting/etc.

The bike computer says it was 50.23 miles in 3:13:41 for an average of 15.5 mph with a max of 36 mph. HR only got over 150 bpm twice and quickly got back into the 130s. The vert gained was only 1518' but tempo was the name of the game so some of the vert was out of the saddle and blasted

Many are faster and fitter, but I'm pleased the week on the ladder didn't have too much effect.

As I like to say to anyone who will listen, 15.5 is the new 20.
