8 miles on the bike path
28 minute ride time
Strong headwind on the return leg
This was the first lunchtime ride of the year, and I hope to do a lot more.Â Due to the parking lot being full, I had to alter my usual routine.Â It actually worked out being faster than I had been doing before, so I’ll likely park my bike in the same place next time I ride.
This morning I parked at Walter Hall, rather than my usual spot at Baker Center.Â At lunch, I took Baker Center to Grover and changed at Wellworks, leaving my clothes in the locker room.Â I took the other exit from Grover to my car in Walter.Â I then got on the bike path behind Peden and rode to E. State Street and back. Â I then retraced by steps to Wellworks, showered, then went back to the library.Â I did all of this in 58 minutes, despite putting my front wheel on backwards the first time.
