Although not as fast as previous rides along this route, the miles are added to my Motion Based Digest–thus documented. One hundred sixty-three more miles to 5K.
Shucks! I rushed to get to an 8:30 a.m. ride with friends and left my Edge 305 GPS on my other bike. I rode anyway and benefited from the exercise. I would have preferred to document the distance ridden, particularly since I am now withing 190 miles of my 5K goal. My rode approximately 30 miles. Certainly, I have many more undocumented miles. Should I reach my goal, I know my distance ridden for the year is in excess of the documented miles. Tomorrow, I intend to ride this bike again–but documented miles.
I have to report on 3 areas:
- I now have a stable that houses 2 ‘bents; a DF; & MTB–it is the utility room.
- I have built a platform to be placed on my floor scale to allow me to weigh anything that’s too large for the scale itself. The platform is 101.5″x20.” I used 2×4’s for the base–photographs above.
- I’ve made a few additional adjustments to the RANS: I moved my XM radio; collocated the 2 Garmin Edge 305 GPS; repositioned the light behind the neck rest; and repositioned the safety flag.
Over the next week or so, I intend to write about the above changes.
I am amazed, that with all the rain on Sunday in Richmond, VA and the tornadic storms in NC on Thursday, that I was able to get 431 miles at this time of the year and not have gotten wet and had colder temperatures. At least 3 of the ride days were spring-like. I’ll just call it blessed and say thanks!
