Track Day

With a Sunday morning hangover courtesy of a Saturday night spent consuming a few too many beverages with the team, I missed the departure time to make the team ride across the GWB to 9W. A bagel (or maybe two) and significant quantities of coffee remedied all these early morning ills, but even highly caffeinated I couldn't bring myself to terms with a solo afternoon on 9W. Instead I ventured across the Queensboro bridge in the general direction of the Kissena Velodrome. Several missed turns and an ungodly number of stoplights later (12 mph average FTW!) I rolled up to the track just as the Women's Clinic was concluding - perfect timing to spend an hour or so riding in circles on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
