Beautiful afternoon, and though I didn't have the sort of ambition that suggested a long ride with lots of fierce hills, I took the Nordavinden up Mass. Ave. to Lexington Center for my default ride on a nice day.

There seemed to be an unusual number of bikes out on Mass. Ave (not a bad thing, there's plenty of room, and most of the riders were masked), and once again there seemed to be more car and truck traffic than we had enjoyed during the quietest part of the Great Pause. Meanwhile, I was noticing what looked like diminished traffic at the Minuteman crossings. So... I hopped on the Minuteman in Lexington Center, to see for myself...

... and immediately found myself in 9x traffic compared to the road, with the added treat that about two thirds of it seemed to be either Barefaced or Just Warming My Chin, happy Breathers everywhere you looked. I bailed at the Seasons Four driveway, and chalked it up to sampling bias, from start to finish. That'll teach me.

Nice ride for all that.
