Susan and I have started our training for the Pan MAss Challenge in earnest. This weekend we did a 40 mile ride on Saturday and a 46 miler on Monday. One of the reasons I wanted Susan to do this ride with me was because she is so organized. She has made up a training schedule for us and she maps out our rides well in advance. As good as she is, though, sometimes we do get lost. Many times the street signs have fallen or the map tells us there is a road present where a road is actually not present. We somehow always manage to find our way home. Throughout our training I will be posting pictures and updates so you can follow along with our progress. These pictures are from our weekend rides that took us from Reading to Wakefield, North Reading, Andover, Middleton, Boxford, North Andover and Wilmington. I realize we look a little posed and goofy — like we are trying to model for a bike catalog or something but we actually stop and take the pictures so they are a little staged. Hoping to get out further this weekend, if the rain ever stops.
