After getting groceies after work and coming home and getting them all put away, I thought it was getting a bit late to think about going out for a bike ride. But I was inspired by the Hooterville Mayor who has made it his goal to get out and ride every day, even if it is just for a few short miles. With Charlie gone for the evening driving a bus trip, I didn't have anything better to do so I quickly changed and got out on the bike.
What a beautiful evening! I did a 14 mile loop and averaged 15.3 mph, not a great average but it was a hilly route so I was happy with it. Since I was on some hills and the shadows were starting to get long, I turned on my Bike Planet blinky light. Wow, it seems like cars really give you a wide berth when you have an obnoxiously bright blinky light! They probably think I'm set to detonate at any moment!
The ride improved my mood immensly - I need to do this more often!
