A real training ride…of sorts. Back on the “racing” bike with the full range of gears. The position felt really strange after so much time away. I reminded myself that I was just starting back on the bike and that I should spin a light gear and go way easier than I would otherwise be inclined to do. I had to remind myself of this repeatedly. When I did so, the ride was quite enjoyable, only a little cold at times. I went for 1 1/2 hours, about 40km. No efforts of consequence. Climbing again the hills that had taunted me last week on the fixed-gear was a non-issue. From a cardiovascular perspective, I am very fit. For cycling specific strength, I am an infant. So pushing big gears, sprinting or spinning high cadence is better pursued with more miles in my legs. That will come with time.
