Rideau Lakes Prep – Kanata to Gatineaus Foothills

The weather and my schedule has finally co-operated so I got out for a leisurely 60km ride to just inside Gatineau Park. I was thinking about going up to Champlain Lookout but I can still feel some weakness in my left calf from my April running injury. It was probably for the best that I turned around at 30km as there was a steady 20km/hr headwind on the way back. That would explain why the ride into town felt so easy.

All-in-all, not too bad for the first real spin of the season. Now I just need to figure out how to get the rest of the riding in during the next four weeks while still leaving something for the half-marathon on Ottawa Race Weekend…
