    Gravel ride beginning at Bob's Creek going through DuPont. Lovely day temps in 30's. This mini niagara is on the return dirt road outside of Brevard.

    I've been exercising a ton since 12/23, and need to take a day off, but any time you have the chance to ride outdoors four days in a row in January, you gotta do it.
    Managed to get out on all three bikes at least once.

    Need to wind down with erg and yoga tonight.

    I appreciate that...and looking forward to the change.

    If you don't know, that's from the song "Loser" by Beck...

    I spent four hours on the mtb breaking in my jeans in hopes of developing some decent fades.
    It was really cold and windy so I closed the vent on my aero helmet. Sadly, my aero helmet is more useful as a warm winter helmet than something that lets me slice through the air. I am not sure how far I rode, but it took me a very long time to do my usual route and I was surprised by how hilly it felt when going so slow on my mtb as opposed to my road bike. I received some thumbs ups from some walkers and reappreciated how nice lexington/concord area is for riding.

    The super blue skies called called my number early this morning and I of course, answered the call. Then some pretty stiff winds came along when I was a few miles from home and blew in the cloud cover to remind me to head back to work. Riding is always better than the ZOOM/Teams meetings that seem to suck the life out of every day and I’ve somehow mastered how to make both activities fit into my day.

    Run in the woods with evidence of recent storms, I am taking our lockdown very seriously and most of my time outdoors is before dawn or after sunset to minimise contact with other people. Tonight I timed the run so that we (me and dogs) made it back to the car to hear the start of the Inaugural Address.

    It was much darker than it looks in the photo.

    This is the song I think of with a very close lyric.
    I'll have to check out "Loser" by Beck.
    I liked the song, but I'm always slow on lyric interpretation.

    Thanks for that, Bironi - great song and an accompanying video that is so relevant to our time as well as the recent past.

    Local indy radio station is having a special on Sam Cooke tomorrow to celebrate what would have been his 90th birthday.

    I've recruited my CFO who has repatriated to South Africa to WFH for ride photos.

    From South Africa 32 C today .... I told him the group is big on turtle shots. Although this is a tortoise.









    We have dog resuce in the US, they have lion rescue from poachers.
    The lioness is wondering what my CFO tastes like. :)
