23 solo night miles tonight, puts me at 100 for the month.

Traffic is picking up again now that things are opening up. I want the empty roads back!

Ainít it the truth? I had a friend get hit by a car last Tuesday. Heís still in the ICU. Between that and the increasing traffic around here Iíve reevaluated my regular routes. Havenít eliminated any of them, but Iíve definitely been reconsidering where Iíve been willing to ride.

Hope your friend heals and recovers quickly.
I rarely ride on a main road . I just donít trust vehicles, especially pickup trucks . Although theyíre rough sometimes, I ride on cart paths or stay in my neighborhood.

Yeah! I am a big fan of the "BACK OFF" system. As you can see, I was in no hurry to approach that intersection. If I back of the pedals a bit, hopefully that mess is clear when I get there. It was! Got to keep ourselves safe out there.

MUP ride this morning on my Trek Multi Track 730 , Iíve been rebuilding .
When I got home I swapped out the front cantis for V-Brakes . Big difference in stopping power.
I need it when following my riding buddy and for dodging people and golf carts on the MUP . Those folks on the golf carts fly around those paths .

10 easy miles just to stretch the legs for this weekend. Will be riding with a couple of smaller friends that will more than likely try to rip my legs off so I want to feel fresh, just stretching tonight. Next weekend, another ride with more smaller riders who will try to rip my legs off on an 80 mile ride. Who needs enemies with friends like this?

110 miles MTD Target 400

Nice cool even in the dark with my lights and ankle bands!

That little red alum anodized bar end plug increased my speed by .5 MPH over 10 miles. OK, not really!

May goal: 275 miles - I've had problems with both the primary and backup bikes that has knocked me out of riding much so far this month, so I'm trying to set myself up for success.

Late out of the gate in May, and back with a different UserID. This is rje58_too - the user previously known as rje58. I changed ISPs, lost access to the email I registered with as rje58 and have been trying for MONTHS to get my access restored, without success. Exchanged a few emails with some admins, thought I had done everything I was asked to do, but no dice. So here I am, back as rje58_too.

So, with all that said, I've missed this place and the fine people herein.

May 2 - 10.6 miles
May 5 - 14.2 miles

May to date: 24.8 miles

2021 to date: 657.5 miles

All my miles are outdoor miles on a 2011 Fuji Absolute 3 (unless otherwise noted)
