Four-Hour Cruise

Since I signed up for the I Care Classic century this May I need to work on extending my long rides. So I went on a four-hour cruise on my recumbent. I went out and back on the Coyote creek trail, but since it is still flooded north of Bailey ave. I detoured around on Malech road, which also allowed me to get in some climbing practice. I intended to go all the way to Hellyer park and back, but found out the trail is also flooded between Blossom Hill road and the park. So I added some local riding after the trail to get to four hours. This was at a pleasant pace and I felt great afterward. But it was a bit slow. I have to get my cruising speed up over the next few weeks or the century ride will take a long time.
