Both are correct. I was sure I had covid, even though I had all 3 vacs. When the test result was negative, I was a bit surprised. I cannot say relieved as I was still sick. I had not had the flu in many years, no bug at all in 5 or 6 years. I have never before had a bug that gave me the sweats and chills, especially at night, or body aches as bad as this was. My upper body especially. I had my yearly wellness check up just a few days after finally getting through feeling so bad. My PC doctor asked me if I would think about getting the flu shot next year, due to my not getting one in quite a while. I told her it was likely I would. Maybe it's the age, maybe the strain of flu this year, it really took a toll.

I so enjoyed picking up the pace yesterday, the Zeppelin is definitely my ride today. Just thinking about it now puts a smile on my face. We are looking at mid 50's, sunshine and SE wind at 10 mph. Woo Hoo!

Curious, why no front fender. Perhaps foot overlap?

I just stripped and rebuilt the bike. Forgot the fender and now I'm lazy. Got to get it done though, with all the snow and salt.

That was my second guess. Nice bike.

Did about 7 miles. Curious about the state of the trail. Still a mess, half mud and half ice. The mud is fine but the ice just makes it less fun.

Just my usual simple variations on the 15+ mile loop.

But the kite surfer added some interest and there were small waves where it is usually rather calm. Standing taking the picture was a full throated wind. And in a bit of extra fun, my Pixel decided it would make a PAN for me so it doubled the kite!!!

Edmonds, WA - up and back

31 miles and about 1,100 feet of gain and I feel every inch of it!

That's once again, Mt Baker (I zoomed in) up near the Canadian Border about 80-90 miles as a crow flies. It is one of our volcanoes and there's a vent up at the top that roars like a freight train and smells like sulfur.

Best ever metric century time. Less than 4 hours including stoppages. Average speed of 28.5km/h. Not bad for a 15kg beast of a bike. 😁

Rode 125.6 miles. The day started around freezing and warmed to the high 40's with fresh breeze of 15-20 mph. Longest ride in the past 5 months had been around 31 miles, so, it was a big jump but I got er done.

I presuming that's condensed perspiration. No one would do a metric century in the rain, would they?

If you're not willing to ride in the rain, you won't do a lot of riding in Shanghai in February. At least it was only a very light rain so I didn't get too wet. 😁

Early start at 6.15am this morning. Used my lights for the first hour or so. Chilly (-1C) but at least not raining. Good ride.
