Hilly bike ride by Horsetooth Reservoir! Hit 52.3 mph downhill! Was going hard (esp. on way back, trying to chase down a guy) nearly to the point of cramping. Ran afterwards; though I could run it was hard to imagine trying to try to run 23.2 more miles...

Rist Canyon loop, counter-clockwise. At first felt good going to the top of Rist Canyon, but totally bonked after 3.5 hours or so. Hungry the entire time despite having 1 omelette, 1.5 servings of pasta, and some fruit earlier in the morning. Need to remember to bring more than water for these super-hilly, 5 hour rides.

Fort Collins to Boulder. 28 degrees most of the way and water bottles froze. Rode in aerobars 95% of the way. Need to do something about helmet, which requires me to strain neck in aerobars. Averaged 17.0 mph to 50-mile mark, but faded in second half. Too many rollers and traffic lights.
