Let's do a quick recap.
I can declare an official Ramming Speed Friday if I:
Ride a 17+ mph commute home on either the Xtracycle or my mountain bike
Ride a 20+ mph commute home on my road bike
I've ridden the X the last couple of days because of it's helpful fenders. I hadn't ridden it much at all over the past few months. I never feel very fast on it and I've been craving speed more than just about anything else. Today I nailed a 17+ mph commute home. And, since it's Friday, I was on the X, and I was on my way home...
RAMMING SPEED FRIDAY
Yes, the return of the Cannonball X and of Ramming Speed Friday!!!
Anyway, according to Strava I tied my fastest time on one of the segments I rode this afternoon. Bonus for a RSF! Again, I didn't feel very fast, but really, there's a reason I call it the "Cannonball." Once I get up a good head of steam there's not much that will stop it.
I had to dodge some crusty slush on some of the MUP bridges. Wet leaves lay in ambush in a few spots. But I still managed to crank out a respectable end of week ride. I was glad to be rushing away from the cubicle/cell.
