My locked-into-linear brain had a revelation: I can just as easily record my ride *home* as my ride to work, and do a circle on Church and University. Advantages would be: more traffic and no worrying about getting to work on time.
I can tell that I am riding sans safety flag and sans horn, but so far I haven’t had situations where I’d really need to use either. (However, it’s only been four days.)
Yesterday I rode past a Polar bottle and pondered returning for it and forgot. Today it was still there. Now it’s mine. Happily its contents are water (or, perhaps, vodka — but a clear liquid ;)) — it’s not brand new ’cause it’s got bottle cage marks on it.
Full moon ride perhaps Saturday 🙂 If I can get a century out of Monday that would make for a good September start, which would be absolutely necessary to stay ahead of that Howard dude who’s but a few paces behind me on the charts. (Haven’t seen Nancyboy on my page forever.)
