Still, it was a nice follow-up to the morning's ride. 34 miles, fierce northwest wind, temps rising from the low 40's to the high 40's.
In this age of uncertainty, when even a 6 hour drive is too far, I sure wish I could have joined you on those lovely wooded routes. No way, huh? One wee silver lining: my friend who owns an LBS can never go cycling with me as he's always open, cracking the nut. But Saturday he was shut down by our Governor. Friday night I get a text - "what time are we leaving?"

We took our two orange C'dales to the SRT and "wasted 2 hours" in the warm sun. You should have seen the grin on his face! Ages since he had time to ride that road bike. So smooth and quiet. "No phone, no pets. Ain't got no cigarettes. King of the road."

This, too, shall pass. BTW, still healthy and hearty here. Riding more too. Our county G'ovt says Yes, go outside and exercise, use our trails and stay away from people. My usual modus operandi. Does that make me "an early adopter"?
