 not a lot of miles but I am glad I got in 5 rides this week.

not a lot of miles but I am glad I got in 5 rides this week.

Monday

No school. I had to take Ryan to the dentist in the morning so we didn't get a chance to ride in the morning. Ryan went out on his bike as soon as we got home.
I guess t ready to go out and Andy surprised me by coming along.

It took a while to get ready. I had to pair Andy's iPod with his speaker. A neighbor came to the door to tell me Cheryl told her to tell us that she thought one of the boys was stuck on BBD. I checked and Ryan was moving by again. 
Then we had to pump up tires. I tried to get the iPod case for Andy but Ryan had broken that one too. 
We finally set out. It was windy. 
We passed Ryan in front of the new school. He laughed but didn't stop. 
We rode to Wiregrass. We went under the parking garage so Andy could make some echoes. We went back up SR56 to Mansfield and home. It was 8.88 miles. A record for Andy.

Dad and I moved Ryan's wheel so his chain would have more tension.

Tuesday

I got ready for a bike ride and asked Andy is he wanted to go. He walked away then came back with his shoes on. I asked Ryan if I could ride his bike. He said no. But he didn't have a good excuse so I rode it. 
We didn't have much time. We rode down Mansfield. At one point, Andy caught up to me. After a few questions about the Keene activists, he asked me if we were going to be home before dark. He wanted to turn back at the high school.
We did just under 4.5 miles. It was better than not riding at all.

Wednesday

I got a haircut and ran some errands. I worked late. No time to bike.

Thursday
62° and windy 8 NNE
I was glad I was wearing my tights. It was chillier than it looked. 
Car cut me off as he was turning left from Mansfield to SR56. Ass. 
I went one loop. 
10 miles 12mph

Friday
Bike. 
50° wind 4 NE
It was late so I didn't have time for the full 10 miles. I went out Mansfield and back. I rode hard. 
Six miles isn't long enough for 30 minutes so I rode around Deer Run.
6.89 miles 13.4 mph
I ended the week with 40.3 miles.

 I stayed around the neighborhood. Cycling was all about exercise, not exploring.

I wish it could have been more miles. But it has been too cold and it is still dark until 7am.
