The ATT has good points in that the trail surface is very nice. This is the first time I've been on the ATT since the Durham County section has opened.
I traveled to the southern end and rode all the way to Durham to mile number 5 (of 22) giving around 34 miles total. This allowed me to cross over I40 on the beautiful bike/pedestrian bridge.
The ride was the longest ride I've done since 'The Big Whoops' of 21 August 2016. The distance I traveled was just a bit short of one half of a day's ride on the MS150. So I have my work cut out for me to be in shape enough to do 4 such rides as I did yesterday in at two day period by September.
Here are the details of the ride:
53.73 km ...... Total Distance (33 miles)
17.50 kph ..... Average Speed (10 miles per hour - very slow)
03:04 hh:mm ... Total Time (rolling)
03:24 hh:mm ... Total Bike Ride (20 minutes rest)
115 bpm ..... Average Heart Rate
135 bpm ..... Max Heart Rate
68 rpm ..... Average Cadence
Here are some pictures from the ride:
