No huge deal for most of you . . . but on Thursday I was 56 and yesterday I rode 56 miles. Never stopped and averaged 16.2 mph. Was a nice ride solo in the rolling hillls around this part of Oklahoma. High 80's and not much wind.
I usually ride with 3-5 good riding buddies on regular weekend rides, but this week everyone had chores or projects that precluded riding together. It was fine riding solo and I really didn't mind. One of my buds knew my route and he and his 8-year old (BMX'er) met me along the highway with a Polar Bottle of fresh cold Gatorade at the 30 mile mark. Nice!
I love riding bikes. This one was a borrowed aluminum Schwinn: a 506? or some such.
