Weather was nice and sunny in Florida today at 86F, 67% humidity and a SW breeze at 8mph. Dark clouds off in the distance over the northern lands of Crest'burg'.
Made my flight check down the dead end street here, neighbors doing some kind of woodwork outside.
Looked like a door or window on a sawhorse. ~It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood~
Anyway, I can't believe I'm practically 'spinning' on this beach bike, especially with the taller gearing. There is only a very short moment between gears and then I'm on the way to spinning again.
Didn't come close to breaking a sweat (that there is a milestone in itself). Legs got a good workout and I made time in every instance. 3rd gear surprisingly enough is very doable. First gear is still good for parking lots and more, especially on one small incline that I took at a respectable rate without over pedaling or straining. Second gear is still good for Hollywood stops and getting on down the road. Was having a good ol' time, passed right by the intersection to my home to do some more. Still could have done a lot more, but I left my house door open with its storm door closed and I had to get back to my doglettes. It actually feels almost like... what's that word? ... Oh yeah... a bicycle! :0)
