Two Bridge-Two Island Ride - a loop course that starts at Island Hoppers Bike Shop and takes us over both Sunset Beach and Ocean Isle Beach Bridges. The weather was a treat - shorts, jersey, arm warmers, wind vest and toe covers. On the islands the temperature was drastically different, it felt like a 10 degree drop - brrrr, quite chilly.
I rode 50 miles without any problems, felt a little sluggish going up and over the bridges which I contributed to the fact that it has been a month since I've been on my bike. The weather here at the beach has been unseasonably cold, we even had a brief visit the day after Christmas of some snow. I always ride to and from home to these rides which adds 12 miles and gives me a nice warm up and cool down.
I felt terrible all night and most of the next day. Finally this morning I feel almost normal again. I guess I picked up some 24 or 48 hour bug. I'm glad it's gone - I guess I'll go for a run!!
