Saturday on the Bike

Is it really November? This weekend was beautiful with temperatures in the 70's and blue skies. I'm sure the cold weather and maybe some snow is on the way, eventually. But it is nice to enjoy a few more days like this while we can.

Saturday afternoon, I went out for a ride and passed a few others who had the same idea. My neighbors with the tandem were out riding on Sutherland, too. I passed them on my way South and they were heading back into town. I hadn't ridden Sutherland to Hwy 231 since Greg and I did it earlier this summer. I had been meaning to do this route again, sooner but there are so many good rides around here, that it's taken me a while to finally do it. The wind was in my face going south and it might have even been out of the southeast, but I did get some help from the wind on the way back. It was a nice long ride and it felt good to stretch the legs a bit, again with a few hills that didn't seem as big as the last time I rode them. Maybe I'll be a hill climber, eventually!

Today's Mileage: 24.24 miles
2008 YTD Mileage: 666.0 miles (uh, oh, 666, I better get some more miles in quick!)
Miles to reach 2008 goal of 750 miles: 84.0
Avg Price of Gas in the 'boro: $2.25 (still falling, I bet prices start going up after the election)
