After the 6 weeks of recouperation, some spinning on the indoor trainer, and a small ride with my wife last week and one commute to work I went out today on one of my regular training routes, 30 miles and 2,000 ft of climbing. I was suprised at how well I felt! I hope that this keeps up as I start to do more miles. I am encouraged that I will be ready to get back to the 100 mile marks and start working up from there.
I am looking for a vintage long haul touring bike, like a Trek 720 or Specialized Expedition, Miyata 1000, or Schwinn Voyageur SP. I want to do some touring vacations and head out cross country. That's something I have always had on my list. First got to tour France, with Ann, though! If she likes that maybe some other european tours?
