I only had 5 rides this week.
62° humidity 89% wind 4NE
I had a late start. I rode my usual loop to Hueland Pond. The wind seemed against me most of the way.
Wahoo App and Apple Watch workout app were off by 2/10 of a mile even though their time was only 2 seconds apart. WTF
500 km this month
66° humidity 94% wind 4-5 NE
Pam told me about the wellness café at Florida Hospital. I decided to check it out. To make it worth the calories, I went out MPB to SR54. I rode the MUP along MPB. I prefer the road but it gets busy along this stretch and I wasn't sure I could keep my tired brain aware enough to be safe.
There is a decent shoulder along SR54.
I rode south down BBD. The wind was with me and helped me get some good speed.
I have not been to Florida Hospital. I followed the signs to the Wellness Center and looked for a bike rack. I found two in the back with the visitor parking. I locked up my bike and went in. The Café is very small but had a good variety of smoothies. Why do most smoothies include bananas? I ordered a berry blast. It was $4.82.
There is seating inside but I prefer to go outside. At least there were other people around in workout clothes since the Wellness Center includes a fitness area. There was no seating outside so I took my smoothie to go.
I rode back against the wind, SR56 to Mansfield.
65° humidity 95% wind 2 NE
Late start, shorter loop.
Dirt haulers entering The Ridge cut me off. Had to stop for light at Hueland Pond and Mansfield. Only had to wait 19 seconds.
66° humidity 95% wind 5 NNE
I didn't feel like riding.
Scott Corwin called when I was CLR. I declined the call. A minute later he called again so I stopped and answered it. My phone will only allow to answer first and I wanted to stop my Wahoo App. Ugh. He wanted to "touch base" and tell me Ryan is doing OK now. Yeah, I know. Also, Ryan needs an online class to graduate. I have been telling him that but he kept putting it off. Maybe the school can get him to do it.
I rode out to Union Park. They are staining the wood bridge so traffic is only on one side. I don't use the bridge and avoided that mess.
My legs were really tired coming back in the wind.
I managed to find some energy to beat the dirt hauler across the entrance to The Ridge. I knew he wouldn't stop.
I almost had to stop for the mower who stopped across the path. He was driving at an angle and could easily see me if he looked. Ass.
I was glad to be done with this ride.
No ride. Drove the boys to school then took my car in for service.
66° humidity 90% wind 4-9 NNW-NNE
Dark sky said 4 NE. I knew that was wrong when I went outside. Carrot said 9 NW. They were both wrong. I went out CLR to BBD and felt the wind It was really bad on BBD and I could barely keep up on SR56. I turned at Mansfield instead of fighting it. I then did a normal loop.
I rode in The Ridge and went all the way to the back. The houses to the east have bigger lots.
This week 63.6
