Successful ride

Pat met her goal for Hill Country Ride for AIDS — not just in donations raised, but in the ride itself.  She finished about a half hour faster than she did last year (50 miles) and kept the rubber side down throughout.  Long-time readers may remember she fell last year.  Her riding buddy said she’s in much better physical shape than a year ago, and was surprised at how easily she knocked off the first 14-mile leg.  She did have a flat tire, which hasn’t happened on the tires she uses since they were installed over a year ago.  And the new taller stem, while more comfortable for her sitting position, meant she was putting different pressure on her posterior.  It’s a little sore tonight.  Plans for next year — still uncertain at this point.
