Mora Bike Tour

This morning was the Mora Bike Tour, the third event in the Mora Classic Series (canoe race, half marathon, 50-mile bike, and cross country ski). Jim picked me up at 7:00 and we headed over to Mora. When we arrived, we checked in and were asked what time we wanted to start. Nice flexible start! I was happy not to start with a big group of bikes - a sure recipe disaster for my klutzy self.

Once we were off, the miles clicked by pretty quickly. I'm glad I decided to wear my Garmin, because there were no mile markers. I tend to get a little panicky when I don't know how far I've gone or have left to go, so Garmin was a life saver. Jim and I kept up a decent pace - not too pokey, but not too fast either. We had plenty of time to catch up, which of course included a nearly word for word repetition of this week's episode of The Office.

Before I knew it, we were done. A great ride with no problems (except the tiny little issue of missing the final turn and riding an extra mile - oops). Finished in just under four hours. We enjoyed our free lunch and came home. Now I'm spending the evening relaxing and playing with our new laptop. Have a great rest of the weekend!
