It’s Independence day… but I missed the parade ’cause we ended up going 5 miles extra on the perimeter ride and… going counter-clockwise meant no easy duck-in to shorten the loop since that happened ‘way too early this way.
Well, that and since I still had to ride home… I did the extra looop to knock it up to a metric. I had to estimate — which I was was within a mile of, confirming w/ Ride With GPS — because I’ve misplaced the mini charger cable to my Garmin and since in searching for it I found my helmet in a weird place in the garage, I figure I might have put it anywhere. I know I was *thinking* about setting it up w/ the dynamo hub but it wasn’t anywhere near the Xtracycle that I could find.
So! First metric in over a year, and because I was with the ‘slow’ group and we averaged about 13 mph (which is a speed I actually could sustain on the Xtracycle), I had plenty left.
About 35-40 people on the ride 🙂 🙂 🙂
