too many things today... have volunteered to work some O/T.... but also have two appointments this morning and Sweetums starts nights today... I am going to leave work by at least 3. So as I have too many places to go, decided I better drive today.

Decided to go out golfing today... have had an urge of late to mashee that niblick... #3 son wanted to join me. So, we went out and played a round at the local club, where he used to work (had a coupon). I did horrible (for me), but considering I've only played once in the last year, it's not unexpected. Shouldn't have even kept score, just hit balls and had fun.

Walking was still problematic on the ankle. Have physio tomorrow and a massage... see how things go.

today... rain!

I'm going along with #1 to his university orientation... I'm not staying with him for the orientation, but after he's done we're going to do some driving around to show him other roads to take. The main route is the 401... multi-lane hell-- which is often closed or severely backed up due to stupid drivers... so having alternate routes around that is a good thing. The other route to Guelph is a two lane highway, which gets about 100,000 cars daily (just a guess, but it's a LOT) and backs up pretty bad if their is an accident/incident on the 401. So, I'm going to show him some of the back roads... none are great solutions, but they are better than being stuck in traffic... not moving.

yesterday was a quiet day... as Sweetums is working evenings, I have to do the grocery shopping and cook meals... so no time for riding. I didn't feel like going out anyway. (don't be too shocked)
Bike #1
  • 44m
  • 21.18 kms
  • 28.88 KM/hr

First half I took it easy, then I started picking up the pace and effort. It was a warm muggy foggy morning, but still pretty nice out. Winds supposed to pick up tonight... oh joy.

Quiet roads this morning. No issues.

Bike #2

  • 21.20 kms
  • 29.88 KM/hr

Faster ride home... not fast, but faster than the morning. Legs felt tired and I couldn't get the ankle comfortable, so didn't really hammer home.

Hit a couple hills hard though... just not as hard as I could have.

Most vehicles well behaved, nothing sticks out though... except for dipshit who passed me 50 feet from the 4 way stop sign. >>SIGH<<

Lovely sweaty morning for a ride. No fog this morning and a lovely sunrise. Makes getting up at the crack of stupid worth it. :)

Only one turd driver this morning... and his license plate was so dirty I couldn't read it. Passed close, while laying on the horn. Yeah, buddy, I know you were there, but you had the whole other lane to use and no one coming, so PASS PROPERLY PRICK!!!

Other than that, easy ride. Tonight I work hard. HR seems a little high, but that's probably a HRM issue. 214 Max is not possible... and the 122 average is a little elevated for how I felt on the bike. I'd guess 118 average... and 140 high.

  • 33.60 kms
  • 29.87 KM/hr

This is a combined ride... 14 km from work to the hair salon (time to de-trailerize). Then after the cut & colour ride home in the dark(18 km). I decided it was best to ride cautiously home, so I didn't push the efforts on the way home... it was pretty dark and people just don't expect a bicycle to be going 40 km/h in the dark. Even with a good light on, it's better to be safe than dead.

Friend of mine was hit by an SUV tonight... just minor injuries... but scary. Person turned corner and didn't see him... clipped him with the mirror. That was WAY to close!! Gawd people need to slow down and open their eyes around here. It's only going to get worse with the schools starting next week. :(

I'll call this a caveman ride... just don't care about the metrics. It was pleasant.

rain was predicted for all day today... when I went to bed. When I wake up, the forecast is for sun/cloud and warm. Damn, missed another day... but that's ok, yesterday was a long hard day. I'm a little tired, I can use the rest.
