A Milestone

Ben Demars

Two weekends ago, I attempted Valley Forge Park again.  The first time, the hills defeated me after about 10 miles.  The second time, I was able to ride for 2 hours, which, should have covered somewhere north of 800 feet of hills and, at my normal average speed, around 20 miles.  Unfortunately, I forgot my phone at home when I left for the ride, so I had no way to track my distance, speed, or elevation change.  Whatever it was, it was a personal best for me, but the lack of statistics tends to diminish the brag factor.

After this weekend, I can officially say that I have broken the 20 mile mark!  Kristen and I started our ride on the Schuylkill River Trail, then crossed the river into Valley Forge Park, and came back.  The River Trail is relatively flat and I felt pretty fresh, still, going into the park.  Those hills in the park, though…they’re tough, and I could feel myself fading.  Once we were back on the flat River Trail, I was fine again.  The conclusion is that hills are my nemesis.  At this point, I feel like I could easily do 28 miles on a flat course.  Unfortunately, Kristen tells me the terrain in Lancaster, PA is similar to that in Valley Forge Park.  Grrr.  I can only hope that frequent stops for yummy treats will give me time to recover before moving on!

Ride stats:

Average speed: 10.7 mph

Distance: 22.3 miles

Elevation gain: 568 feet

 

Next stop…Farm to Fork Fondo, PA Dutch.  Wish me luck!
