30 miles round trip. Record high temps today and high winds but I still had a good ride. Riley’s team lost but played a great game. Lily and the rest of the family drove in cars..

My Wilier is getting Jealous. Next real ride will be on my Wilier for sure.



North Branch Trail

PreSchool Parents – Whine and Wine Party

bag and helmet after the rain

Pam and I rode our bikes to the PreSchool Parents – Whine and Wine Party with Lily on the back of my bike. We had a great time but, it got late and a little dark so Pam and Lily got a ride home from one of the parents and I rode home by myself. Then it started to rain. I love riding in the rain, I love riding at night, and the weather was perfect. What a great ride home. Unfortunately, my phone crashed so I couldn’t record the round trip. Instead I just copied the ride out, I took the same ride back.

So that is over 5 miles tonight. Not very many miles but, I did have some fun after work which is really all that counts.

Buddha Ride

Late afternoon ride while Lily napped today. Was crazy hot 91 degrees today.
Took it easy and the ride was more of a mediation than exercise. Seems to be a trend. Stopped by my new favorite bike shop to say hello and get a “ticking” sounds fixed. Still not sure what caused it and neither is their wrench but, it’s fixed.

Rabbit mailbox

This is a bunny mailbox from my ride last week. I did about 20 miles on my cruiser bike using MapMyRide to record the ride. The app allows you to take pictures along the way and places then on the route map where they were taken. At least that is what out is suppose to do…

What out did was freak out and a useless, inaccurate, and completely impossible route.
Next ride I will try Endomondo.

For my road bike rides I use a Garmin so my phone keeps a full charge. I know I can upload rides to MapMyRide, wonder of Endomondo does… It doesn’t look like it does. Maybe I can download? I guess I should test Endomondo first.

Here is the route mapped by hand in MapMyRide:

Ride to Grandma’s for Dinner

Grandma at Steak and Shake

I rode to Grandma’s house with Lily on my bike for dinner. Yes I know the picture is Grandma at Steak and Shake for her birthday and not the dinner we actually had after the bike ride. Sorry I don’t have any photos from that day. Didn’t expect to be building this site back then.

The ride and back added up to just over 21 miles.
