Wow, my new tires were showing off their speed today. It's the first time I see some orange on the heatmap:
This would have been a new record time had it not been for the bad timing at the lights on Carling and the traffic getting into downtown. At least I can comfort myself that there won't be lights at the race and while there may be quite a bit of bike traffic, it should be easier to handle. The official time was 52:40, 10 seconds slower than my fastest commute yet.
The ride home was pretty windy (15km/h) but I still managed to do it under an hour!
Boom's Double Dipped and Phantasm's Eternal Frequencies in the mix.
