Plugging Along on Thursday

by on October 4, 2012

With skies threatening rain we gathered at the Rusty Bridge and set off on a leisurely pace into the darkness.  This was a morning for conversation, so two by two we rode, chatting it up about upcoming rides and plans.  Vehicle drivers were challenging this morning.  At one crossing, the car slowed, we proceeded into the crosswalk, but then suddenly the car accelerated through the intersection.  In another place, an oncoming car was doing about 15 mph over the speed limit, but we didn’t realize that until they were nearly on us.  That’s one huge advantage of following the speed limit … others can predict your arrival time pretty accurately.  But no real near misses this morning, and for the most part, courteous drivers were encountered.

The rain held off until after the ride.  The forecast is for clearing skies and lower humidity.  A lot of bike projects are on tap for the day, including cleaning the bike, prepping for the ride, washing my cycling kits, and making sure all the paperwork is properly done.

This Ride: 21.1 miles
Month: 42.8 miles
2012: 4,402.4 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 18,256.1 miles
