Got lost while trying a new route -- let's, um, call it good practice in reading a cue sheet. Or good practice in vetting a cue sheet ahead of time, since it was missing a critical piece of information. Thus only went 13 miles instead of a planned 25, since once we figured out we'd lost the route, we also figured out we'd brought the wrong Rubel map. (I dragged my husband along, who made noises about not riding much and being out of shape, and still had to slow down for me; stupid genetics.) Still a nice ride through Melrose and Malden, except that I need a different set of shoes; the ventilation in my new-ish shoes that was so nice in the summer was a little too much today.
I think the route, though, once I actually ride the whole thing, is a strong contender for being my standard training loop, which would be really nice. All my old ones were out Lexington-wards, and while they're still nice rides, tacking the ~20 miles to/from the start makes them too long for a quick hard ride.
