PPTC “Downtown Breakaway” ride. A big group showed up on this warm evening, with more hammerheads than usual. And when Wolfgang dropped the hammer on the climbs, I responded. Eventually, I cramped a little bit, so I opted out of the ride down to Great Falls. Of course, that got me back to Dupont ahead of most of the group, which is fine. I rode strong today, all told, and I’m happy. I think I’ve shed a bit more “winter weight,” as I’m feeling a bit more spry on the bike.
