1.01 Miles 04/01/11
So yeah- it was my rest day, but I had just learned of 30 Days of Biking. Sounds interesting and I figure I'll give it a shot. This allows me to not blow it on the first day :) Click the pic for more info.
I also wanted to try out my new tires that were delivered today. I bought them from Performance at a pretty deep discount plus I had $35 in points to apply towards it. They are Continental Ultra Gator Skins. 700x28. That's down from my 700x32 cyclocross tires. They are about half the weight of the old ones and I could tell after just that one mile that the rolling resistance is much much less, as they are a true road tire - no real tread to speak of, at least not like what I've been riding on. Much easier to get on and off, too. Those old tires almost needed a jackhammer to remove them - I broke two levers trying to get them off.
