My First HRCC Ride

Did my first HRCC (Highlands Ranch Cycling Club) ride yesterday.  Was just four of us out there, but we couldn’t have asked for better weather.  Temperature was in the 80’s for most of the ride and it wasn’t very windy at all.  The group rode well together and they did a good job of making sure that no one got dropped.  Nice group of people to ride with, I think this will be a great group for me to continue riding with.  We ended up doing about 40 miles with a few small breaks and a few fun hills.  I was able to keep up and never felt like I was off the pace.  Despite having a flat on the bike before we even started and picking up another flat 2/3’s of the way in, it was a great ride.  Note to self, next time put sunblock on the parts of your body that you don’t think will be exposed, because odds are, they will.
