For the last month, month and a half or so, my weekend rides have been dictated by a my need to be ready for that century ride. But with that ride done, I took took the opportunity to just head out on the road bike and ride. I had a general idea of the direction I’d be going, but I took the laissez-faire approach and just let the ride handle itself. I will say, it was a very enjoyable ride. It was a bit smokey, but that made for one of those eerily beautiful red sunrises that seem to be happening too often lately. It was a bit early, but that made it a cool ride and cool rides have been rare lately.
Just nice to get on the bike and ride.
