I was tired but wanted to get another challenge out of the way. I rode out to Union Park. I had to ride over the wooden bridge because kids were waiting for the bus on the sidewalk. I saw a girl riding her bike and wondered if she rode to school. I saw her bike parked near the bus stop when I left Union Park. 
I had to stop at SR56. I took a photo of the mound of fill dirt that has been there for months. Is it for the future road extension? 
I rode west on SR56 and had some good tailwind. But my legs didn't feel like pushing too hard. 
I rode to Wiregrass and rode through Paseo Drive to Fresh Healthy Café. There was no bike rack nearby so I locked my bike to a street light pole. 
I ordered a Green Tea Berry with energy supplement. $6.41
I sat outside and drank my smoothie. 
I rode home when I finished. It wasn't a good ride. My belly was too full and the wind was too strong. 
16.4 miles 12.9 mph

It feel like a great effort to ride. My right knee has been hurting a bit. I feel it at the bottom of every stroke.

Very late start. 
75° humidity 88% wind 6 NW
I planned to go west and turned east on CLR. I turned around and went to BBD. The wind wasn't bad until I got to BBD. 
It helped me on SR56 but there was still some cross wind. 
Had to slow down quickly for a dirt hauler exiting the construction site. They cannot see and don't bother to ask for visual help. 
I went out Oldwoods to Meridian. They are building from the back first. 
The wind was really strong on the way back. 
13.63 miles

Chilly and windy. Wore my blue sweatshirt. Almost felt like I could have worn my tights. 
Got to CLR and turned right because of cars and too lazy to stop. Turned around and went to BBD. Headwind on SR56. I went east on Oldwoods to Union Park. I stopped at the welcome center and found the maps and where the various parks are. 
Saw my battery was down to 36% and got the charger. I bumped my Apple Watch and it saved my ride so I had to start a new one. 
14.84 miles
13.6 mph
