Just another commute today. Added 25 miles. Up to 176 for the month.

The water is flowing down the rivers and starting to hear the "F Word". Haven't heard the word FLOOD mentioned in many years.


This is the north fork of the American river at Lake Clementine.

I know that river and lake.
California really needs that rain.3 or 4 years of drought?Looks like the snowpack is also very high.
I'll be in Auburn on Saturday.Have family in that area.
So if you see A 40 something year old huffing an puffing up on them hills on A scott or bright orange Orbea.
That could be me.

Well, only in the northeast...80 degrees one week and 30 with snow showers the next. There's no way I'm going to make 200 miles this year so I'm now aiming for 100 this month...

March 13: 20 miles ("New Bike Inauguration ride.")

March 19: 10 miles (Cold, 31 degrees but sunny!)

MTD: 30 miles (Goal: 100 miles)

A hoot if you will. All good since it played into the training plan Du Jour. Half the mileage for twice the work. Win Win.

Heading out for an Easter weekend tour in NJ and DE starting Thursday. Should net me about 150 miles. Haven't ridden much in a while so it's probably going to be tough, especially with 45 miles up the coast into a likely headwind.
