I had to cut down a maple that was 80-90 ft a few years back as it had a disease and I did not want it falling on my house. Sad too when I had to do that, I planted it when we had the house built and I put in 5 of them and all of them got this disease. The roots have finally decided to give up the ghost.

Looks like the tree is getting its revenge because you were ‘twerking’. It probably wouldn’t had been so malevolent if you tweeked . :D

Was anticipating a ride, but the unforecasted rain, rained on my parade.

What a day. Decided to ride outside today weather was ok, wind and storms by 5, which as thing happened was spot on. I head out and 22 miles in, I get a frantic call from my son. He and my wife went to see a movie and they got t-boned at an intersection on their way to the theater by some woman that ran a red light. His car is older so most likely a total loss, but my son and wife are ok, just some bruising and my son has a small hairline fracture in his left leg, which is a blessing. When he called me, I was about a mile away actually heading to that area. I heard the ambulances and what not responding, and as I arrive at the scene, I walk up and the cops are looking at me in my bike gear and telling me to go away. I explain this is my family and he is going to have to arrest me if he thinks I am not going over there. The Sgt on the scene waves me over. I see they are ok, but very shaken up, but ok. I was also very shaken up, HR spiked up to about 175 when he called and it stayed up there for a little over an hour.

The woman that ran the light was drunk, and she eventually ran into a tree. It was 10:30 am, and she was drunk, had an open bottle of vodka in the drink holder.
:troll:

They took them to the hospital right down the road, so I go ahead an head that way. I get to the hospital right about the same time the ambulance gets there, again making sure they are ok. I ride home to change and head back to the ER. ER team checks them out, all is good, which is amazing since she hit the drivers side door. Side and front air bags saved their lives. My wife just has a nasty bruise on her left fore arm, she believe she hit the center column shifter. Woman that him them, did not have airbags, she is in a coma with bad head wounds and glass in her face. They let my son and wife go about 3 pm, drunk woman went to the hospital downtown into the arrested patient section.

So for today, I got in 25 with a crappy call, and a very high heart rate for over an hour. The rest of the week, I got 134, all indoors.

Morning drinkers are a growing problem.

Frustratingly windy today. First long ride with my new Garmin Edge Explore 2.

Troul 04-23-23 08:32 AM

Wait until you get 5G. The net gains are a lot of work, but it'll be a clear sign in how far & strong you'll go!

:D

jaxgtr 04-26-23 10:23 PM

Had a stupid long 16 hr day at work, So decided to get in a short 10 miles and 2600 ft of climbing before I hit the bed. Pleasant dreams.

Troul 04-27-23 05:37 PM

rolled out before the traffic got heavy & cranked out 75 miles. Might be a short one tomorrow as its suppose to start raining early, & continue thru Wednesday night...

jadmt 04-27-23 06:51 PM

30 rather pleasant miles. Just when I was shutting down the 'puter device, a rain drop ****ered onto the screen. Now it's pouring rain.
Put the Muc V2 valves to use finally too.

rsbob 05-01-23 04:34 PM

42 miles into a green hellscape like this:

As an temporary ego boost, I got a Strava trophy for 3rd overall on a very little known 1.25 mile segment. Now that I know it exists, will have to go back and try to nail second just for SaGs before a real cyclist appears and blows me into 152nd place.

Fremont Bridge and I-90

That should be the Fremont Bridge (lower) and the Aurora Bridge (highway 99). I-90 goes East-West. These bridges go North-South. Anyway, great day to be outside and some really nice photos. I rode right here last Wednesday and Friday.

Oh you are so right. Thanks for catching that. And yes it was a wonderful day.

I rode from Enatai across 90 to Mountains to Sound, down Holbert to the waterfront (what a mistake) then a nice ride around Magnolia, over the locks, down the BG to 520 and across to Medina to my favorite market, the Medina Market, then through Bellevue by Meydenbauer Bay and up and over back to Enatai.

Won’t do that loop unless the waterfront is done of perhaps go up Western instead.

Yes, the Seattle downtown area and especially the waterfront is a construction zone mess. I avoid that area. The BG is OK except for some homeless camps set up right along the sides of the BG between Fremont and Ballard.
