After a full week off the bike, and getting tired of painting windows and other fun stuff, I needed to get out for a ride. I decided on the usual Grant Hill Road loop, with a nice climb in the middle. The winds of the morning had abated somewhat, but were still swirling about to become a headwind whatever my direction of travel. Toward the end of the ride, after-school traffic was getting heavy, and I was stopping for far too many school buses, so I opted to get off the main roads and take a residential route home. Overall, it was a good ride of 23.54 miles, and I need to start doing more of this again.
