I tried to go out alone but Andy wanted to come. I waited for him. We went through The Ridge. The sidewalks were poured and are set so we could just ride past the locked gate.

I went out by myself after Andy went in. I rode hard to SR56 and back Hueland Pond. Headwind along Mansfield was awful.

A little chill in the air. Wind wasn't strong. I didn't want to stop at the light at Mansfield so rode along sidewalk to PHSC and tried to cross. I had to stop. I should have ridden to the light at WRHS.

Chilly. I tried a new route today. I road on Mansfield north of SR56. It runs to Chancey. Instead of intersections, there are roundabouts. There are three roundabouts in that short area. The bike lanes stop at each one and expect the riders to switch to the sidewalk. That seems dumb.
