    A tad over 50K on what started out as the first ride of the season with arm warmers (and the thought of gee these shorts are a bit of underdressed) and ended with the jersey unzipped.

    About half way through had a flat. As I was holding the wheel, another rider slowed and asked if I needed help. I said no but about 20 seconds later he came back the other way with « wow, is that a Spectrum ». He hung out while I changed the flat and geeked out over the bike. Oliver and I had a great bike chat. Let him take it for a bit of a spin when the wheel was put back on. It does amaze me that in this French speaking city, even when someone approaches me on a bike they go instantly to English. How do they know?

    All in, a great ride. Even the flat was ok as I met another cyclist in this bike friendly town and had good conversation while fixing it up.

    Finished gluing up those new shoes. And not a moment too soon, apparently...

    My favorite picture from the Climate Strikes on Friday:


    #strikewithus #climate strike

    On Friday afternoons I usually avoid the bridge over the Connecticut River, which backs up for a mile or more. But sometimes it's fun to pedal down the shoulder, dodging and feinting and squeezing through the inevitable pinch points. Plus your bike gets to show off that it's the superlative vehicle.

    It's been warm and sunny in the 'Burgh and I did my duty in getting back to town so that I could ride like it's Summer. Watch out for wet floors out there...

    After a day painting and mowing had time for a quick(ish!) 19 miles. Beautiful evening for shorts and a wool jersey - but I was glad I put some led lights in my pocket as it got dark sooner than I was expecting. Just missed a beautiful sunset shot but the sky had great colours.

    Trying out a new saddle recently - pretty good so far so if I stick with it I’m going to get the matching bar tape too.

    Left the land of awesome foliage for the no leaves ocean to close out the week.

    12 miles of sand.

    It is a bit different than my usual milieu. There was a lot of this.

    And it was a bit sloggy as it was just more of the same. Beautiful but more and more and more of the same.

    I should have never left at high noon on a hot day to ride on the beach.

    But oddly, I am glad that I did.

    Sunday was London Lord Mayor's Car Free day in the City.
    There's a Yoga Class in the middle of the bridge.

    W&OD to Cross Country Trail yesterday. It is definitely not Fall yet here in VA.
    I've had this bike for a year now and am still not getting the hang of it. It just seems too long and unwieldy for the type of (low-key) MTB riding I do. Will probably see what my bonus looks like this winter and swap it out for an XC bike- if anyone's sitting on a Size Large (19"ish) they want to move, drop me a line.

    Took the kids and dog to Riverbend Park in the morning- it's slightly further for us than our go-to Great Falls, but a nice change of pace.
