I seem to be very short on time of late, but I am getting to be a pro at 20-30 minute rides during the week. I think it has actually been really helpful for Stinker. Nothing gets drilled over and over again. He has to go right to work and then we are done. Considering how well he is going, I think it is much better than longer rides because I don't have time to get fixated on one thing.
I am still doing some trail riding, but I have cut way back since his saddle fit still isn't 100%. Hopefully that will be resolved next week. It was supposed to happen last month, but the fitter had an accident and broke some ribs and was unable to travel. I can't wait since it feels unfair when things aren't just right.
