Trouble in paradise. There was an assemblage of five friendly neighborhood crows in the lawn. Two or more mockingbirds were in a tree above, screeching away. One began dive-bombing operations. Hoo boy.

The tail light is charging. There will, of course, be a test ride on the bike path out front, to see if I'm roadbike capable.
Addicted, and happy
Edit: I just realized that was my first ride in two months.

Is it bad if I say, “fingers crossed”?

Correct.

Why do you need a tail light?

I run one full time. Plus, this is the first day out of complete lockdown. I find that I am not fully on my game behind the wheel after an extended period away from it. And I don't text while driving. Many of whom I share the road with do.

Not at all. I find myself delaying the start for no particular reason. I might just decide to take the little bike again. It only takes one fall to nullify two months of healing.

One of the few benefits of having a very early alarm cat.

wut is the little bike?

LesterOfPuppets 06-08-20 09:56 AM

100 avg pwr
15.0 avg spd

Unfortunately 20.10 miles. I gotta see if I can shave a tenth mile off that route, so I can get the even Steven trifecta.

That's what I've been wondering. How is it easier on the fingers than vintage steel?

Hey guys. I hope you are all well and the virus didn't strike anyone in my absence. All good here. I actually just came in to put my steel bike up for sale but thought I should say hello while I am signed in.

According to Strava, yes.

Hey Roberto. I am trying to fill big shoes in the grammar police department.:)

16 km on the little bike. This time I feel it in the legs.

I ride 60 cm road bikes
Edit: 32 oz pre-hydration. None on the bike. It's tough to drink with a mask on. And masks are required, away from home.
