|The Ballona Creek bike path - looking east|
|The June 2 route. Very good ride.|
I was wondering how I'd feel today, if I wanted to hop back onto the bike and go to church. I definitely didn't feel the exhaustion I felt last week, but I was a little chaffed, and I'm realizing just how much I wish I had a pair of chamois-crotch biking shorts. However, I don't feel I've earned them or a real cycling jersey. I need to still drop a lot more weight before I can even find one in a reasonable size. Also I need to drop the weight before I get a road bike because they aren't built for someone of my weight.
I also wanted to force my body to get back onto the bike, because that will be totally necessary when doing sequential heavy riding days. So, I did go to church and came back, and the ride was fine except for the chafing.
I need to get more fig newtons.
