Even though I was pretty tired from the mornings TT up Diablo I needed to get out for a ride on my recumbent so that I would be ready for the IC3 team ride on Sunday morning. I rode pretty hard but the heat and the wind took it’s tole on me and I ended up backing off a lot. Strangely I felt fast on the flats and downhills but I was climbing like a bag of spanners. I cannot believe how hard climbing on the Bacchetta is compared to my road bike. I reckon I will really struggle to hang on on the climbs tomorrow. I am still having great fun riding it though.
