It was great to get back on the bike again after a week off. I was out the door at 7:30am and rode for about 3 hours. My cycle computer was not working due to an original battery. I was not sure what my average speed was, however I did get passed by a few riders. I have a new battery now and I am ready for the next ride.

Less than 60 days before my Tour de Michigan, I am not ready, and my Seven muse is less than finished. My personal goal was to have ridden 1000 miles of pavement, and have a new Seven I could ride before the tour. Reality bites with 550 miles of training and need of a complete groupo. I am dealing with some poison Ivy, actually, a lot. I have taken a week off the bike.
The best news of the week was a pair of undamaged Reynolds wheels arriving.
