Groovy Pavement

grooved pavement aheadHubby and I went for a 100 km ride today. I have to say it was NOT one of our more enjoyable rides. It held a lot of promise…The wind was favourable for the ride home which is when you want it but several things contributed to it being less than a perfect ride A) the closest ferry to cycling paradise (a.k.a the Kingston Peninsula) has been out of service for months so we have had to take an alternate route to another ferry 30 km away. That in-and-of-itself is not a problem but add to that B) the pavement torn up from that ferry landing to our beloved Kingston Market (4 km of dirt road!) plus C) Just as we turned the corner at the 50 km mark to enjoy the wind at our back… what do we find? 8 km of grooved pavement. To summarize over 10% of our ride was on torn up roads. Home now and I feel like a martini… shaken not stirred!
