Jun 21, 2008 | Ambler Ramble

To celebrate the return of my bike from the bike shop for minor wheel truing, I decided I’d take part in a C+ training ride sponsored by the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia (where C+ designates a ride of duration between 15 to 75 miles and a 12 to 15 mph average on flat terrain). My legs feel like an odd combination of jello and wooden clubs, and it really reinforces the fact that I have to get back in better shape.

Philadelphia Museum of Art – Ambler/Penllyn, PA

Notes: Distance: 42.2 miles. The ride took us from Philly’s Art museum to Ambler, just north of Plymouth Meeting, where we stopped for a short snack. The terrain is 60% flat with a fair amount of hills along the way, but it gets really picturesque once you hit the Walnut Lane Golf Club. One highlight is Schuylkill River trail on the way back, but beware of slower riders and runners.

One thing I might consider is doing a Philly Schuylkill river ride, particularly since the river is great to ride along.
