The Empty Sunday Ride...no vid, couple pics

Sunday...not much happening other than another breezy 42 miler. We did catch a glimpse of the haircut Crew BadBob and The Legend Greg. Brother Brian spotting on the return. Gina had to rush home for some shopping so we didn't have a chance to stop after a late start...Darn Giro!

Heck, the beach was nearly empty, the trail too. We just about had it to ourselves. Not much around so I turned the overcrowded trail ride (sarcasm) into the Gina show ha ha!

Empty beach, empty trail!

I was going to take my recumbent out on the trail today, but couldn't get motivated. Kept falling asleep. Now I'll just go for a ride around the neighborhood.

It was a dark and gloomy morning, possible drizzle in the forecast. Only slept 4 hours and I was VERY tempted to stay in bed this morning. Woke up at 6:30 to watch the Giro. By the end of the stage, I was ready to ride! Glad I didn't stay indoors, turned out to be a nice day!

I'll sleep like a baby tonight!

I rode around quite a while in the late afternoon. With the exception of a bathroom break, I didn't come home until almost 10 PM.

Got video of a baby skunk walking back and forth in the gutter downtown, from a safe distance of course. I also kept my eye out for the mother, but no other animals in sight.

Here's some proof. Zoomed-in view after :30. I'm glad I didn't stay inside either
