Yesterday we rode the first loop of the Lake Stevens bike course for the first time. It is brutal. And we will be doing the loop twice. This was the first time I have ridden since the Chuckanut Century in the fall and lets just say that I have a long way to go to get ready for this race.
We ended up doing about 32 miles and my average moving pace was 13.5mph. Not bad for not riding in months, but not nearly good enough yet.
Here is the elevation climb, please note the lovely little gems located between miles 22 and 24. These two have been dubbed "Big Pappa" and "Little Bitch"
