So in the absence of a functioning trainer I was forced to go actually ride outside. It was actually kinda fun. You guys have been holding out on me!

Oh and WhyFi, I have some spare chain lube now if you need any.

Iím so lucky to have a place like this so close to my home in the big city. Rode up there early before it got too crowded.

Be careful, Seeds, you don't want to compound things with a fall because you're riding one handed. Hang in there, there will be good riding days ahead.

Excellent advice. At our age we have hopefully learned a thing or two about caution.

I have thought about riding a trainer, in my circumstances. Of course, I don't have one.

That was fun. Not quite a century but close enough. Gorgeous day out.

That first photo is 10 miles from my door, but the wooded area starts at about mile 5.

I'd send you my KKRM, but I suspect the shipping would suck.

I used to also be able to tell time by the changing of the seasons, but no more. #2020

Funny how one can find little crannies of "wilderness." There's a stretch of road on a route I do, about three or four miles from downtime. For half a mile or so going over the top of a hill all you can see are woods. You'd think you were out on a country road.

Walked to Whole Foods for some wine. It closed before I got there due to the planned protest close by.

You could set you watch by its return to the dock to the sound of “Hot! Hot! Hot!”.

Correct. We were just there year before last. It was a fun stop even though we never ventured much past the local shops. Bubba & Forest’s place was fun.

Oooh, the Safeway is less crowded than usual, I might have to brave the heat for a beer run.

Alex, I'll take "any of the places I'd like to be" for $600".
