I did the Gold Coast ride this morning. Because of the heat, I decided to do the 55 miler rather than the 70 that I had originally planned. The ride is a good one, pretty well organized with lots of hills.

I've done this ride twice or three times before. Last year I did it with OOS. This year he bugged out because he is crazy busy at socialism, I mean social work school.

The truth is, while I always like the company, especially OOS's, I also don't mind riding alone, even for many hours. When I ride alone, I can ride at my own pace, stop at rest stops (or not) for as long or short as I like, and I get to do some serious thinking.

The downside is that it's much easier to get lost (which I did twice this morning because of some sketchy signage) and I don't get to work with anyone in terms of dealing with the wind.

Nevertheless, every once in a while, a few hours alone on the bike is refreshing.
