Today is Veteran’s Day in the U.S., and I have the daylight hours off work. I still have meetings and a class tonight between 6 & 10.  An impromptu SPP ride to Ellicott City sprung up, and I was able to ride at least the first 10-12 miles with them.  (I have delivery people coming to my home and had to cut the trip short.)

What a pretty day!  Temps at the 8:30 start were about 45 and by the end of the ride it was 50.  Clear blue skies were only marred by a brisk breeze from the NW.   We rode the trail north through Glen Burnie and clockwise around the airport.  On the western edge of the airport the 10 or so riders (one tandem) kept going toward Ellicott City and I simply rounded the airport and worked my way back home past the hospital.

It seemed strange.  I’ve not ridden the airport loop in two months.  I may ride it again with Mike in the morning, if he is commuting to work after the breakfast ride.

Tomorrow’s Breakfast ride will take me over my 3000 mile six month goal.  Time to start establishing some new goals!

  1. Yes, I am planning to ride to work after breakfast tomorrow.

    3000! Isn’t that almost a month ahead of schedule? Well done.

      It’s more like 6 weeks ahead of schedule!
