It was a pretty good week for riding. I was busy doing rides for errandonnee and racked up the miles.
65° humidity 77% wind 6-13NW
First I forgot my helmet, then I forgot my glasses. Sigh.
Rode against the wind to Lori's. I brought her cookies. (You carried what?) continued against the wind and up and down arrow sidewalks to the library. I needed a new card. (Personal business or wildcard). Finally with the wind to the bank. The walk up ATM was out of order so I went to the drive-thru ATM. (Personal business)
Rode to Panera and met Lori for lunch. (Social call) Rode back towards home but stopped at Target to get milk for Ryan. (Store)
79° humidity 37% wind 4-5 E
Wind was stronger and in different directions. Bus Z528 stopped in the crosswalk at Hueland Pond and I had to swerve around it. Ass.
66° humidity 77% wind 2-4SE
Rode south on BBD. At Amberly, I got out of the rode and onto the MUP. It got crowded and a bit crazy once I got to USF. Lots of t affix and pedestrians. I parked my bike and walked to the museum. It was different. I walked over to the gallery but it was closed. (Arts and Entertainment)
76° humidity 56% wind 6SE
I rode my bike through USF and was happy to get out of there and ride on busy Fowler Ave to Fuzzy’s Tacos. (Social call)
No bike rack but so found a sign to lock my bike to. I got the shrimp fajita plate. I am not a big fan of peppers but I like the rest of it.
79° humidity 51% wind 6-11 SE
Google maps said the best way home was through USF. No thanks. I went around and made it just fine. But the tailwind was a headwind until I got to Cross Creek. Then it came back along CLR. Oh well, the lunch break was what I needed to not feel tired.
27.06 miles I stopped at CVS for sunscreen but they didn't have Blue Lizard though their app said they did. (Personal care)
70° humidity 71% wind 7-10 SE
Sunny and windy. More broken glass on Beardsley this time east of Braughton Place. Crowd fighting over a dead squirrel. Rode two loops. Truck didn't stop coming out of The Ridge. I expect the worse from drivers and prepared to stop.
Stop at the school to see if they take used batteries for fundraising. They do and I will go back later.
I took 20 pounds of used batteries up to the elementary school for fundraising. (Non-store errand) then I rode to the out community fitness center. (Personal care)
80° humidity 74% wind 17-27 S
Windy as heck! I tried a new route just up and down CLR. CLR runs and east and west thought it does curve. I only had to deal with string headwinds at certain parts for a short distance. It is almost 5 miles and I did it three times.
67° humidity 64% wind 7-18 SW
21-24 NW 20-27 W
Windy as heck! A bit cool, too
It was a slog on most of the roads. I would have stopped at one loop but I needed the extra calories burned off so I can eat at Chick-Fil-A for lunch.
76° humidity 33% wind 8-10 NW
Want d a longer ride and to take advantage of the wind direction, I rode the long way to Lori's & Bob's. (Social call)
This week 137.8 miles
This year 1845 miles
