Sunrise Ride
Up before dawn for a quick ride

My stage today began at 5:36 AM. What was I thinking?

Maybe I was thinking that the sky would be beautiful as the darkness over the Blue Ridge began picking up pink tones from the eastern sky. Perhaps I was anticipating the cool still air. Or it might have been that I hoped to watch a hawk carrying its breakfast across the road and into the woods by the pond.

No matter the reason for my early morning insanity, I logged 20.8 Km in 56 minutes. That's an average speed of 22.3 kpm.

Later today the boys in France will be riding 192 Km at considerably more than 22 kpm.
