# 20180909 Cycling

Finally back on the bike every day. I am still taking it easy and still riding the 820. It doesn’t feel like a big effort but I don’t want to overdo it. Yet I am itching to ride longer and father and harder.

The light was against me so I turned right onto Mansfield. I didn't do my usual loop but went to the deadend and turned around.
I went through The Ridge to SR56 then back to Mansfield. It was a nice ride and the sun was just visible through the haze.
