Final rides before Bike MS

Bike MS is coming up quickly! Last weekend I rode my last long rides before tackling Bike MS weekend. This year I am hoping to have the legs for the double century -- that's 200 miles in two days. In the past I've gone with the more traditional 150 miles.

On Saturday we had a lot of rain due to Tropical Storm Hanna and I did my time on the trainer. I kind of knew that if I held out I might be able to squeeze in an outdoor ride but I got on the trainer first thing in the morning so that I could relax in the afternoon. I watched house flipping shows on mute while listening to my iPod shuffle.

My replacement wheel came in and was on my bike before the ride on Sunday.

Sunday was the last Team CBC training ride. The group that I was with went about 72 miles. The group was good although the ride was a little slower than in the past. I think that everyone just wanted to stay together not not push too much.

This week I have pretty easy workouts leading up to the MS ride. So far it's been kind of fun.

I'm getting excited about the upcoming ride and obsessing a bit about the weather forecast.
