PoppyFest bike ride

I wasn't sure that I was going to do this one, so I didn't have it as part of the originally published race schedule. But I did a short trainer ride on Thursday and felt fine, so I decided to go ahead and do it. This is a 62 mile supported ride through some off the path county roads... fairly small but well run and organized. My friend Barry rode with me, and we just treated it as a supported training day. Stopped at two of the rest stops, and kept a steady but moderated pace. It was a nice way to start getting back into things after the marathon. The next few weeks will have a pretty heavy bike focus, since I've been concentrating more on the swim and the run up until now.
