I wanted to leave a little earlier but fixed the garage door first. 
Overcast, grey. 
I rode CLR to Mansfield to SR56. I went west all the way to Collier Parkway. Planet Smoothie is in the shopping center but tucked away on the side. At 9:00, it was empty. I saw no bike rack nor any place to lock my bike. I saw no other people either so took a chance and left it unlocked. 
The inside is plain and a bit bare compared to Smoothie King with their emphasis on power bars and protein powders. I tried an Orange Push-up. It really tastes like one! $5.34
I sat outside and drank my smoothie. 
I rode back but went south at Cypress Creek to CLR. CLR has no bike lane and no shoulder in some parts. Cars came me enough room and I never felt unsafe.

I went out to BBD believing that the wind would be behind me on SR56. It wasn't. 
I rode out to Union Park.

Cold!
53° humidity 92% wind 2 NNW
I put on my tights and heavy sweatshirts. I still had on my shorter socks so the 4" of exposed leg was cold. My hands were cold too. 
Steamy ponds. 
I stopped at SR56 and Mansfield. I opened DarkSky and my iPhone crashed. I tried rebooting but it said I was low on battery. I lost the last part of my ride. Thankfully I have the Apple Watch and it recorded my ride.

Not as cool. Long sleeves and shorts were OK. 
I rode out to Union Park. 
Care at The Ridge blocking the path. Construction vehicle driving on path by mental health facility. Assholes. 
I took my charger to prevent any crashes.

Ugh. My legs gave out after 20 minutes. I kept going but didn't even try to push it.
