First day of Summer

Yesterday was a beautiful day, warm and sunny with light breezes. A perfect day for a ride and to complete a goal. This spring the weather has been pretty crappy, so I haven't ridden the amount of miles that I normally would. At the start of the day I needed 26 miles to hit 300 for the season so far. So I made it a goal to get to 300 miles on my afternoon ride. I started by heading south to the credit union to cash a check. I then came back north across the Jupiter bridge, taking advantage of the new bike lane. Then it was onto the White Pine Trail. I rode all the way to Indian Lake Road before turning around. On the way back I stopped at Rockford Brewing to have a pint outdoors on their trail side deck. After that little reward for closing in on my goal, it was a short five miles home. 26 miles in total and exactly 300 miles for this year.

Little Rides

The weather this Spring has not been cooperative to getting any long rides in. I've done several 15 to 25 mile rides, but nothing longer than that. It seems that every weekend, when we could out and get a 30 or 40 miler, it's been cold, rainy, or both. We've also been gone a bunch. So I'm trying to make do with stacking the shorter rides. This week I got out on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Now that it's the weekend -that's right- cold and rain. Our JDRF ride is in 3 months. I hope I'm ready by then.
