Twenty, slow miles with the wife today. Since she will be leaving Friday, to take care of her father, it may be the last ride I get to do with her until she returns from Illinois in June.

Nicely done. Here's hoping for her quick return.

I almost never check out this thread anymore. I just wander over to the Strava site. I try to post at least one photo with every ride, except for the really boring ones.

Visit some more. Not all of us use Strava or have a GPS cyclocomputer so we can use Strava.

Strava? We don't need no stinkin' Strava. Luddites of the world, unite!

Yesterday I rode my 25.75 miles round trip commute. Today I worked from home but managed to get out for an hour and a half, part of which was riding to the gym. Then I rode over to the polls to vote in a local primary. I guess that's a political statement of sorts.

Doesn't look as if I'll get a ride in today. Rain this morning and lots more rain headed our way for the next three days. The only good outcome would be that it will give my knee a break and hopefully it will return to 100% normal by Saturday.

35 miles this AM fighting a stiff wind. Weather history seems to only show it was about 9 to 10 mph, NNE, but I swear it was stronger than that. The plan was to make it a 40 or 45 miler, but between fighting the wind and the start of rain(drizzle at the time), I bailed and went home to make it 35 miles.)

Finally got a day without rain and a 35 mile ride in this morning. Although the skies were blue and the sun was out, the winds were not very kind. Lots of runners out at the MUP this morning practicing for an upcoming marathon made for a slower ride.
