2009 Workout 85 - Bike training 50 miles MTD 269 YTD 2029

Today was one of those gorgeous days, that comes along every once in a while. The temperatures were in the high 60s with a light cool breeze for most of the day. The sun was bright and there were only a few clouds in the sky.

I drove up to White, Georgia and decided to do a relatively long ride. I started at White City Hall and rode through the countryside for 25 miles. I stopped at a beautiful church on the top of the hill near a cemetery and had the lunch that I had brought along with me, some beans and rice. I also had some trail mix that I had for dessert that was made up of oatmeal, dates, raisins, and nuts and seeds.

After the lunch break, I cycled down to Fairmont, Georgia, stopped at a convenience store and bought some water, since I was running low. I finished the 50 mile ride by winding my way through the countryside back to the White City Hall.

I chatted for a few minutes with White's police officer, who I have become acquainted with and he told me all the local criminal action that's going on. He said that his small town is really suffering economically.

This was a wonderful day of riding. I really enjoyed it.

Not bad for an old codger. I remember when we used to run 10Ks in DC. You were pretty good, but always worried about making sure your shirt was tucked in.
