I think I'm getting better and I've got a good handle on this new loop I'm doing at dusk into the dark night. however I lost one of my PB SF units and I couldn't recover it due to getting flattened by a Hummer ... :(
1 hr 46 min saddle time

Resting today. Got in 86 on Thursday, 87 on Friday.
Lost four tail lights.
I now secure them with rubber bands cut from old tubes.

I wish. Stiff neck for a week.
Girlfriend was right; I need more and better pillows.
Once we move, we should be able to get out and ride more. It's one of the many reasons to make the decision to move.

10 wheels ~ jealous of your miles but I've been busy with swimming; running and weight training so its' not like I've been on the couch. still ... would like to add up more miles ~ trying to decide between a run and cycling today.
about my light. on my other bike i have a bracket which sits under my rack trunk and the trunk keeps it from popping off. on this bike the light was clipped onto the small zippered pocket. guess I'll be fashioning a similar bracket before the next ride, oh and I gotta buy another freaking light. at least I lost the old one and not the new one ...

Can we do a cap and trade on bicycle miles?
I managed to get in 40 miles today. I'm home from school for a month, and the roads here a stinking dangerous, I had to swerve off the road twice to avoid being smushed, and ran from a couple dozen dogs, which is actually a pretty good work out. I'm also busy trying to find a job. Today's ride was more than all of last week combined :(

Thought about it today, then decided against it... holiday traffic coming back in today and there have been a spate of fatalities including a hit and run. Was out Friday when the traffic left and the roads were quite busy.
