    What I Learned Today

    Today I learned why it is not a good idea to wear cheap ($10) sandals from Target while riding a bike. Although I only went ten miles, I found they offered little if any support and were too flexible. I guess they make bike shoes for a good reason! (I usually wear my biking shoes, which are ancient -- they look like bowling shoes.)

    I had hoped the fresh air would feel good on my feet. It did, but I hated the flexibility and loss of pedal power.

    What did you learn today?

    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    There's not a good way to come up on a lone rider out in the country without startling them. I tried not to "scare" the young lady I came riding up behind but we had a few good miles of riding together afterwards.
