43 miles at 13.5 MPH. Yes, it was a lazy morning with too many stops for pictures and a brief ride on trails. Some times it seems like I just can't be fast with an early start, especially when combined with fog, not that I'm ever that fast. But Saturday was an especially slow day. Some pictures:
|The Cambridge Reservoir, looking low.|
|Hanscom runway. I didn't hear any planes taking off or landing and I certainly couldn't see any.|
|It looks bucolic but this is the prison farm at the Concord prison rotary.|
|This is what I learned from Rob Vandermark - signs sometimes aren't all that meaningful. Yes, you would need a jeep to exit at the other end but I could make it on 25 MM tires.|
|Trail riding. I headed down here for a bio break but decided to see where it went.|
|It went here. Some roots and few rocks, except for one short section.|
|A runner suggested that I keep left here, despite the road surface. My Garmin suggested this way as well. The road was rough but not impassable.|
|Umm ... this hole is 2 feet deep and much wider below the asphalt. I hope Sudbury repairs this soon.|
|My favorite road. Apparently it is quite old.|
The Saturday ride route, except for the short diversion onto a trail on Old Mill Road.
After getting up so early and staying up late for working during the week, I was much too tired to get to Adam Myersons #lastlap retirement party and fundraiser for Bikes Not Bombs. I had a hall pass but was too tired to consider riding or driving into Boston.
