With two rides under the new bigger tire I put the skinnier much lighter bike in my truck on Friday and headed for the rain clouds over Gold Canyon. As I pedaled in it was gray and misting, it felt amazing! Immediately the Trek accelerated which was obviously going to happen on skinnier tires. It was great to be back on my trek, perhaps too good. As I got into the heart of things I began to grow weak and lethargic, thinking of the best way out of there alive. My body began to become defeated on climbs, I felt like junk, I guess more low carb aftermath. Once I hit flatter ground it was a speedy ride out and while my performance was bonked the scenery was absolutely breathtaking.
