I upped my rides this week. I am still riding the 820 because my collarbone is still healing. PA said 6 more weeks! But I am riding longer on the days I don’t have to work early. Pumping up the tires increased my speed some. I might need to change my saddle.

A little later than yesterday so the sun was in my eyes. Also a lot of traffic on Oldwoods because of the new school. I will have to remember that. Oldwoods is not wide and there are no bike lanes.
Heavy traffic on MPB as well.
Driver turning left onto Hueland Pond saw me, hesitated, then decided to go anyway so I had to brake. Asshole.
Driver turning left onto Mansfield went even though I had the right of way and I had to brake. Both assholes were young women. WTF
Ran into heavy traffic at JLMS. I had to stop because Fred didn't see me. Also the car in front of me was blocking the bike lane. Sure glad I ride to reduce stress.

Pumped up the tires. What a difference!
Vehicle accident on MPB at Beaconsfield. Older woman hit another car and then ran into a tree. She was sitting on the stretcher as I rode by.
Managed to miss the worse of the school traffic in Union Park and JLMS.

Windy. Wind feel worse on my 820. Part of it is the bike and part is how high I sit.
LMP truck parked in bike lane with no cones, no flashers.
Slow ride.

Sunny and windy. Did the long route to Union Park. I was glad for the tailwind along SR56. Saw a guy on a Halfbike. It looked like a lot of work.
