It has been two years since I was able to ride to a family reunion. Yesterday's forecast looked promising but just as soon as I left my parents' place in Friedens, just north of Somerset, Pa., it started to rain.

I stopped once an hour to take on food. While it was a just a gel that I normally take while I'm riding, I didn't want to ride with one hand on the bars and one hand on the gel. It also allowed me to stop and take a one hour photo to document where I was.

This was my first long effort since breaking my collarbone and I felt good. I feel as though I am starting to regain my form.
