Am I getting better as a rider?

Wheels of Happiness

Rizal Philippines
June 7, 2016

I think I do. This morning I rode to Antipolo City.  I planned to go up there using the lowest gear:   32 x 36.  But that did not happen.  I used only 32 x 25 and 28.  (mostly higher gears) and I reached Antipolo church at a much lower time 35 minutes vs. 40 minutes before.

In the ride last Sunday to Fairview, I was able to catch up with  a rider who passed us in Tikling. I passed him near the Marcos Highway, JP Rizal junction near Katipunan.  He did not give chase.  I was also able to get ahead of the champs by about 5 minutes at Marcos Highway and Katipunan.  I waited for them near Myriam.  That is not bad for 65 years old.
