Groundhog Day in May

by on May 19, 2011

This Ride: 23 miles
Month: 368.5 miles
2011: 2,576.0 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 8,695.7 miles

In the movie “Groundhog Day” the day repeats over and over for the main character.  That’s what this week feels like.  Rain overnight.  Wet pavement for the ride.  No rain but 100% humidity.  Puddles everywhere. Oh, and I almost forgot.  A good ride.

I skipped yesterday’s ride, feeling exhausted from my work schedule.  I missed riding in hub deep water.  Today, the 7-8 (it varied) of us skipped that part of the route not wanting a repeat performance.  Clint suffered another flat (front) on Jennings Road.  We think it was a faulty valve.  But it was a good day to be out, with lots of good conversation and a pretty easy pace.  A 200k is being planned for May 27th that I’ll ride.

I’ll miss riding tomorrow.  It is bike to work day, with events planned in Annapolis, but I’ll be attending graduation ceremonies at Georgetown University for my daughter (PhD) and son-in-law (Master’s).  It will be an all day affair, with a very early commute into Washington, D.C.
