Now the adult bikes are gone, and nothing is on the way.

No 24" kids bikes (new or used) to be found in the Syracuse area.

Kudos.

My ride was going well until some construction crew decided to go all Gandolf on a bridge with no reasonable detour.

No detour options, obv. Sad!

No one waves to me. I must not be elite.

Or perhaps they’re intimidated by my massive guads.

If only they knew I’m “big boned”.

Of course I *had* to do that cyclist thing wherein signs are ignored in favor of checking it out firsthand to see it's actually not passable on two wheels. I wasn't.

The real bummer is that that road is central to my westerly rides. I'll have to see if I can find out the schedule for re-opening and look at some alternatives for loops to the north or to the south of the lake, rather than the usual through/around.

Today is the first day in 6? 8? weeks that the people of Tixkokob can legally acquire alcoholic beverages. I will refrain from riding out on the open roads. Prolly tomorrow too.
On Tuesday, coming home from my visit with the plastic surgeon, we stopped at a fruit stand in a village we don't normally shop in. Their apples put to shame the Walmart apples I've been eating for years. It will be a good excuse to get back out on Monday. Maybe even on a roadbike. I'm an apple or two a day kinda guy

Looks like the back lawn is due for a mow, so I guess I'll head out there at some point. Gonna spread some of this on the NW lawn too.

Who eats two apples in one day?

MN-7.

You're welcome.

East of Excelsior, it's *very* not bike friendly, and I'm not terribly familiar with it to the west of Excelsior, so I'll have to either drive it or click through a bunch of Google streetview before I'd feel comfortable with it.

I've done it.

Possibly a lot. How many apples are in an apple pie?

Strava Heatmap on the Route Builder says that it's not ridden much, if at all. I'm guess there's a reason for that.

Oooooh - I like where this transitive effect is going. How much apple pie per day to keep the doctor away?

57 miles, complete with sex on the beach.

Raw apples. I could probably eat three or four apples worth of applesauce.

My big one in the back is done. As for the front, tomorrow's another day.

Anyone notice a big change in the leaderboard? :innocent:

I've shouldered my bike on more than one occasion, to traverse unrideable road construction.

Bike production shut down for a few months and everybody has discovered family bike rides.
