I don't carry singles, most of the time i just rely on heating up the ole CC.

I did 4 minutes at 40 RPM average today on a semi-recumbent trainer. Considering I had my left knee replaced 9 weeks ago and the right knee 4 weeks ago today I'm pretty happy with that. One week ago I could barely get on the bike much less go all the way around with my right knee. I'm getting my folding bike out tomorrow and attempting a real ride. Fingers crossed.

I still usually use the phone payment, it is much more convenient, and there is no probability that you will lose the money.

I felt good this morning, and road my gravel bike on the road for my longest ride, 70 miles. Im still getting use to cycling after 40 years of running.

Im thinking about getting a road bike, but at age 65, I like the smooth ride of my gravel bike.

I rode 39 miles today. I also carry a $20 bill and also a credit card, ORCA card (bus pass), and an old ID card that has my correct personal info. I never carry a DL.

Just finished a nice 24 miles to and from the beach (Rockaway Peninsula in NYC), mostly flat. It’s nice being out there at 7 a.m.

Around the north end of Lake Washington

Longest in quite a while. 35.5 and about 1,700 feet of gain. Along the Interurban Trail and then east to the Burke Gilman Trail. Along Waynita Way into Kirkland. The Kirkland Connector Trail which has a few miles of gravel. Northrup Way to the 520 Bike Trail across the bridge and then through the Univ of Washington and home. The spur for the trip was that the 520 Bridge across Lake Washington was closed for construction making it QUIET whereas it is normally a complete assault on the ears!

Well, the KM sounds more impressive though the FEET sounds more impressive. Tradeoffs!

You can do anything you want.

Actually, next week or so I will be in the land of metric and moderately confused, particularly with regard to temperature.

I had a heck of a time with the ol' ORCA card last week going/coming to/from LA. No problem on the bus.

Cycling along the Interurban you must have come across a few homeless camps. Scenic North Seattle!
How was the construction work on Juanita? I've heard it can get pretty bad at times which is why I've been avoiding it this summer.
520 bridge must have been very quiet. I would think almost eerily quiet.
