Sunday is day 3 of my 4-day vacation. I slept in a bit. I eventually headed out for a ride with Tim.
After riding the recumbent for 70 miles the day before, I decided to ride the LHT. I’m glad I did, as Tim took us through the somewhat hilly Indian Hills area. Then we were on a flat stretch of River Rd doing 15mph into a headwind. Tim was riding strong, but I was beat. I eventually fell behind, but Tim waited for me.
At that point I was cooked. When back on Baxter Ave, we parted ways. Tim to do another loop in the parks. Me to stop at O’Shea’s for food and drink.
O’Shea’s has a nice shady outdoor dining area. I was able to bring my bike up near the table. I hadn’t brought a lock with me, so that worked well.
I ordered a beer (Southern Tier 2xipa), water, and a chicken wrap. After finishing the first beer, I ordered an Avery IPA. Both of these beers were new to me, and quite good. I like a hoppy beer on a hot day.
After a while, I took the neighborhood streets home.
Part of the point of my vacation is to get some stuff done around the house. I mowed the lawn, washed dishes, and started re-organizing my computer/office/bike storage room.
I’ve thought about creating a “beer” category for my blog posts, but then it’ll just point out how often I drink it.
I ended up with over 20 miles for the day, and rather enjoyed it.
