Bike to Work, day 70

August 13, 2008

I’m finally back on the bike!  Yay!

22:02, 6.5mi
57ºF, Odo 1718mi
avg 17.8mph, max 28.8mph

I was carrying milk, wearing long sweatpants, and a loose long sleeve shirt.  That’s extra weight plus extra drag to slow me down.  I knew I was not going to break any records when I started, because I’m out of practice and it’s colder.

In other news: I have registered for the Ride to Read next month.  I agreed to do 100 miles.  My first century!  Donations accepted.

Awesome ride home:

19:08, 6.5mi
82ºF, Odo 1725mi
avg 20.5mph, max 33.9mph

That’s only (about) one minute longer than my record.  Considering I had to stop twice that’s not bad at all!
