Tomorrow I embark on a bike ride. Not just any bike ride. The Albuquerque Century which is also the local American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure. Theoretically I am doing my second century bike ride tomorrow, 100 miles.
Theoretically? One year ago I completed my first century bike ride (thanks to my husband). But, tomorrow Albuquerque will likely break 100 degrees. I will cover head to foot with sunscreen, start early, and hydrate often.
Albuquerque is a good size, at 180 square miles. But not that big that the 100 miles is all in town. We ride through the city as well as Isleta Pueblo, Corrales, Rio Rancho, Bernalillo, and Sandia Pueblo. Beautiful ride with plenty of support.
This is a ride for both fitness and for the American Diabetes Association. I expect surviving through to announce a full recovery, without major blood sugar spikes or lows (lesson learned from last year). Any guesses on how many calories I will burn?
