Yesterday’s ride: 19.5 miles, in two hours nonetheless! Pretty good for this old man. Again, this time of year, I’m having to get out early (6:00a.m.) to get my ride done. Between the air quality, heat, humidity, and traffic on the country two-lane roads with no shoulders, it can a little dicey when the traffic picks up. So far, everyone’s been considerate. No close calls. One of the issues is I have to be careful on which roads I head east on because of sun blindness from the rising sun. Any day I get back unscathed is a good day I figure. I am trying to get in 2-3 good rides (10-20 miles) each week, doing some commuting riding in between.
