A scouting ride for next Sunday’s PPTC ride, one that I’m leading. It was started at a very slow pace, as I talked with a walker who also owns a LeMond. After that, it was routine. I found that some of the pavement in Bethesda was chip-and-seal treated to awful results – if anything, it made the surface worse than it was before. Ugh. But I love the Giro Atmos helmet: it’s light, well vented, and disappears on top of my head. Perfect.
