I’ve already proven that I’m willing to ride in cold weather. Today, I didn’t have to. The official high temperature for the day was 71 degrees. It was beautiful.
I rode about 17 miles today. I met a couple of new friends along the way.
I had to stop to avoid hitting the dog, but he was friendly, and didn’t give chase once I had pet him. The caterpillar was a surprise. It was six degrees less than a week ago.
Southern Indiana always has some beautiful scenery.
Yup, I rode Nermal. He’s like a new bike with the new seatpost, Brooks saddle, new pedals, and fixed bottom bracket. I’m really liking the Brooks. I’m still slower on Nermal than on the recumbent, but I wasn’t in a hurry.
Once I got back into town, I rode around a few residential areas, and found the site of a recent house fire.
I don’t know the details about this fire. I hope everyone got out okay. Notice the melted siding on the house next door.
In addition to today’s ride on Nermal, I also went on a midnight ride last night for about 12 miles. It was an incredibly beautiful night, and it worked well for relieving stress.
