Thursday and Friday

I missed my blog post last night but not my bike rides. Thursday featured great weather, an uneventful ride to work, then to the evening Cub Scout meeting, ice cream shop visit and finally got home about 8:30 pm. All by bike. A really nice day.

Today I met the 5:45ers at the Ranger Station where the buzz was all about tomorrow's Fleche ride. 5 riders are setting out from Severna Park on Saturday for a 240 mile ride to Arlington, VA by way of PA, and WV before they make to VA. A big arc North, West, South then East. After the ride team put their bags in Bryan's truck for transport to the finish, we all set out for Annapolis for Friday Breakfast. We had a great visit at the Hard Bean then headed out for our day.

Earl kept me company from Annapolis to work. We had a very nice trip. I always enjoy riding with the good reverend. Then work happened. Ugh....

The ride home was cooler than I expected, and also featured a bit of a headwind. Throw in a little fatigue, 2 calls from the boss and it was a slow ride home.

But the big news is that this week marks the first time in 2 years of biking that I managed a full week commuting, 5 days M-F, round trip to and from work on the bike. I did 5 days in a row once last year but it included a weekend. This is the first time I've done it on a regular work week. The biggest barrier is usually the evening schedule, or my inner weather wimp. But this week I managed to navigate both and pulled it off. Yeah me!!

So that's Day 14 and 15 of #30daysofbiking complete
