I Heart Buttercup

I just got back from a great ride on my Buttercup!! Much better than a few days ago. The sun was out, the sky was blue, and it was warm!!!

I rode 38 miles on a pretty hilly course, and felt great. Even the hills, which are usually my nemesis, I was able to spin up without too much effort (granted, I wasn't going that fast, but it didn't hurt.)

I switched saddles with my road bike and moved it a little more forward, and it felt much better. Still a little uncomfortable at around 2 hours, but I think that is more about me getting more time in the saddle than about the saddle.

I still need to work on drinking while riding. If I'm using my aerobottle I am fine, but when I have to reach down to grab a bottle and drink, I have to slow way down.

Now I'm off to a Syracuse Opera rehearsal. Have a great weekend!!

    Great. Those "getting to know you-getting to know all about you" rides are the best.
    Enjoy.
