Well it's a lovely day to be out on a bike today, no wind, weak sunlight. Wednesday and Thursday evenings I cleaned and prepped my bike, put on my summer tires, resoldered a couple connections between the dynamo and the headlight, straightened the outer chainring, adjusted brakes etc. Yesterday I got cash, put gas in my wife's car, gathered all the stuff I need to bring or wear on a 300k brevet, and went to bed ca 10 PM.

And then (as is not unusual) I slept poorly. When my alarm went off at 2 AM I had to face the fact that I was in no condition to drive. I turned off the alarm and went back to sleep.

I trust @unterhausen, @iTrod, @seajaye, @TimmyT, and others, are having a great ride. I'm sitting in the sun drinking coffee.
