Last Friday I participated in my first Cycling Race. It was a 10 mile Time Trial. The Time Trial is a lot different than my regular rides because it is all out, as fast as possible for 10 miles. I feel like I got a two hour work out in about 35 minutes, I was feeling a little queasy at the very end but I held it down for a strong finish.
I raced among other Disabled Athletes who all happened to be on Handbikes. We had a lot of fun representing Disabled Athletes. There were 6 of us but we hope to have a much stronger showing next year.
