I'm at my secret training spot all week. Most of my rides look like this:
Flat and at near sea level. It sure isn't Utah but maybe the break from the climbing will be good for me.
I have yet to see another cyclist on the roads. A lot of tractors and trucks but no bikes. So far, I haven't been shot at or run off the road so that's a good thing. I get the feeling the people up here in the north lands aren't used to seeing lyrca.
