Ride to Nijmegen today!

This morning I did a run to Nijmegen. Started at 0645 to give myself enough time to search out the route should it be necessary but it went quite smoothly. Even with a breakfast pauze by Oos (nice sunrise) I was able to make it from door to door, 55 km’s, in 2 hours and 10 mins.

Some parts of the ride were really good roads, only the part between the new intersection for the A50 to Uden on up to Graven was made of bricks. Rough going and hard to keep your speed up. For the rest I was easily keeping it above 30km/hr with a light wind against me.

Later today I will make the return trip home for a 112 km ride, my longest one day ride yet!
