ran up the BFRT from the parking lot at 127 Concord Rd. Acton to Center Brickhouse Pizza, 1 Central Square, Chelmsford, for 20 miles of quiet, uneventful, almost lonely & sometimes spooky, riding. 56 degrees

6:21 pm left house
6:40 pm at lot, started 5 or 10 minutes later
7:42 pm at Brickhouse
10.67 miles
26.7 mph max
13.2 avrg
48 min saddle time

8:31 back at car
20.43 miles
26.7 mph max
13.3 avrg
1 hr 32 min saddle time

9:06 pm back home

the end of the BFRT in this town, has not changed. it's till 5. miles fromt he parking lot. so checking it out adds 1 mile to whatever else you do

passed a cpl riders going the opposite way. the leader said "good morning". not sure why. maybe it was my light? it was pointed down but maybe I shud put the hood back on since I'll be using the road bike more now?

was surprised to get it up just over 26 mph considering there aren't any "hills" but there is one fairly long downgrade. I was careful not to smoke my legs & get out of breath cuz I think I'm really out of shape (aerobically). so glad I got new shoes!
