Saturday Update

Peeps, I am tired!  I went for a 25 mile bike ride today, which isn’t actually very far, except that I was with a bunch of scouts trying to earn a cycling merit badge and they ride really    s    l    o    w.  So the ride took a heck of a lot longer than it would have if I was just on my own.  I don’t know exactly why, but cycling for a long time at a slow pace is much more tiring for me than riding the same distance in a shorter period of time.  Physics.  It’s probably physics.  or biology. or something.

Also, I watched Avatar for the first time today, so now I understand all the Pocahontas jokes everyone has been making for the past year.

  1. I think I did that to poor Art today. We did a "test ride" to my office and back to help me become a bike commuter, and I am WAY slower than him. Now he's napping on my recliner.

  2. Impressive. I still haven't rode since #30daysofbiking ended on April 30th. I thought it was still to cruddy on Saturday for my wimpy self. I could have ridden this afternoon but a nap sounded sooo much better.

  3. 7.5 miles each way for now, closer to 9 after I move in a few weeks. It's also mostly on off-street trails, so bonus! (I fear cars.)
