 Erica and Terena with a Few Hills
This morning I met Erica and Terena with my Trek at the parking lot just off Hudson Road to ride up the trail. We took off with Erica leading the way, Terena in the middle, and me pulling up the rear. We rode through TR and headed up north but got off the trail just before Mountain View Memorial Park where we took several back roads to get to a hip of Tubbs Mountain. I wanted to try working some hills into the ride instead of staying on the fairly flat SRT. The road going back there has been resurfaced since I rode last and it is much better than it used to be. There was a lot of bicycle traffic back there today. We made the hip of Tubbs and took a quick downhill ride past Lindsey Lake Road and followed Tubbs Mountain Road back into TR. We came to a red light on Main Street in TR and a large group of riders fell in behind us. Once we passed the light we pulled into a parking lot and I asked Terena and Erica if they wanted to eat in TR or ride back to the cafe and eat there or one of the places close to where we had parked. We debated about where to eat and stopped at the Monkey Wrench Barbeque in TR. I had a brisket sandwich with corn on the cob, some locally crafted rootbeer, and a lot of water. Once we finished eating, we had about 9 miles to ride down the trail. About 5 miles down the trail Terena had thigh cramps and we pulled off to let her recover. I took her foot and held her shoulder and pulled her foot up behind her. We gently worked both thighs like that and she was ready to go. The rest of the ride was uneventful but it was a good "coming back" ride!
