Contrary to rumor, I've not retired my bike just yet. But 6 days off the bike is at least 5 too many.
After yesterday's torrential downpour, everything was wet, there was leaf litter and small branches everywhere, and at 5:15 there was still a light sprinkle falling when I set out. But the temps were in the mid 40's and it was nice to ride with less than full winter kit. Others were getting out after extended hibernation as well, with 10 ten riders setting out from the Rusty Bridge at 5:45. 9 of us continued to Annapolis for breakfast.
A great start to the day.
When I got home my wife shared the headlines from Japan with me. Makes my challenges: busy work, too little exercise, disappointing weight control, all seem pretty small. Prayers to those struggling to find their loved ones and the cavalry mustering to come to their aid.
