I ride a fairly stiff aluminum bike. Though I like the feel of aluminum, it does manage to transmit vibration rather efficiently. Before today’s ride I put a carbon fiber seat post between my saddle and frame, and…GOODNESS GRACIOUS…THAT SURE FELT NICE. I am now completely isolated from the road-drone that has a way of wearing me down over long distances. You can really feel the difference on chip and seal pavement. Oh, the glory of it all.
[behold the carbon fiber on the left]
I only rode 16.5 miles: this is a taper-down and rest week before the BIG RIDE on Saturday. Fundraising is at $1664.20 thanks to a $110 contribution today.
Feeling great physically & emotionally for this weekend.
Grace & Courage dear friends…pastor greg
