It was more like flying. Well, actually, it was flying.

38 miles through the UW, Fremont, and Ballard areas of Seattle. Even took a spin up Stoneway Ave from Lake Union to 45th street. It's a good climb but not real long. Maybe about 9/10's of a mile.

Actually from yesterday, my 70th birthday, 25 miles. I made snap decision to drive to my hometown so my twin sister and I could spend the day together. 950 miles in 2 days was more miles driven than in the rest of 2022.
Kind of strange riding where I grew up and not knowing for sure where I was heading. I had to orient with the sun a couple times to get the bearings right.
Took my siblings out for dinner, we do not see much of each other. I am very glad I made the drive, my 70th is now memorable.
I am leaving Illinois tomorrow, heading back to Delaware, but will take 5 or 6 days. I am going to stop a couple of places to ride in areas that are new to me.

2 miles, today was my first time back on a bike not attached to a trainer since my knee replacements a few weeks ago. They didn't want me trying a regular bike yet but it was a beautiful day and my poor old Takara looked sad sooo....... My mount and dismount was not pretty but I got it done LOL.

a bit slow due to the heat, but it probably only peaked at 85. not my cup of tea.

30 Miles. Really want to accept the change in season, but the "cool" weather just isn't *cool* with me.

63 hot humid miles around Lake Istapoga, FL.
73 at the 7:30am start, 93 degrees at the 11am finish, oh, but it’s a wet heat! 70% humidity.
