We did our first levee ride in a long time! It was great! We got out there before the day started to heat up beyond bearable and before the rains came in.
It’s much different riding on the levee than riding on the road. First, you are riding on gravel which is just a little more difficult and second on the levee you are the only thing up there. There are no trees or buildings to block the wind.
On our first 8 miles we had the wind at our backs. We had a good pace going, though the more experienced cyclists were passing us! LOL I felt like I could go on forever! But you have to remember that you do have to turn around & ride the same amount of miles back…So when we reached a certain point we decided to turn around. The ride back was a little harder since we were riding into the wind. The legs were burning!! But it was a great ride!
