In Bardstown: Finished day 1 http://OKHT.org ride @bikeKY

Hills and headwinds were the m.o. of today’s ride, but we made it to Bardstown, KY a little before 3pm. I got to enjoy this year’s ride again with my dad, Richard, Scott, and Brian (my dad’s friends from church).

While we were determined to complete our first century (100 mi) last year at OKHT (including the 18% grade Pottershop hill), we opted for the 70-miler this year. When we arrived at the break, the impending thunderstorms swayed our vote. Hearing reports of a 1-hour downpour on the century route, we are pretty content with our decision.

What we soon discovered was that while shorter, the 70 route was not the easy route! With a persistent headwind and several substantial hills, our quads were aching, Dad’s heartrate ke we were no doubt ready for a crisp shower when we arrived at Bardstown Middle School, our lodging for the night.

The only downfall of our early arrival is that we have to wait another hour or so for dinner (Moe’s Southwest Grill) to begin. Oh well, more time for beer, free massages (if you’re so inclined, like my dad), and free carriage rides around historic Bardstown, KY.

We’ll be departing on the 55-mile return ride to Louisville tomorrow at 8:30am, after a pancake breakfast, of course.
