Time to play on the thigh burners !

Hey today was the first day that I wasn't wearing my arm and leg warmers, woohoo ! I figured a great way to celebrate was to go play a few of the 40+ thigh burners The Burg (Fitchburg, MA) has to offer. I may be getting along in age and have gain a few, well a bunch more than I like I still can't pass on some climbing fun.

Those messed up streets will take your mind off the uphill suffering. Of course they spoil any downhill enjoyment.

It was a great day out there yesterday! I did 25 miles on the Nashua river bike path. I need a lot of work before Iím looking forward to hills! But the bike path was great! Loving this warmer weather!

Thread does not deliver. I saw no trace of Suzanne Somers anywhere during that clip.

What time did you roll on the bike path ? I tend to stay away on the weekends, and roll out on my half day Fridays when it's pretty clear.

It's a nice suffering, and ain't no way to enjoy any real descending with so of these roads.

I do enjoy the suffering, but not many areas to let loose on the downhill because of the poor roads.

Thanks for the idea on some future Thigh Burner Thursday videos.

That was Thursday at around 12:30. Played hooky from work so I could do important stuff... like get ready for vacation and squeeze in a 2 hour ride.
