I didn't ride to work today, but I rode 19 miles tonight after supper. The weather was perfect - very little wind, warm, and sunny.
I stopped on the Van Zile Bridge over the St. Joe River. Just downstream from here, near where Cedar Creek empties into the river, is a new bald eagle nest with an adult eagle on the nest. I've talked to a few people who have been watching the nest, and we think the adult is sitting on eggs, or maybe young chicks. This is the first eagle nest in this area for many, many years. It is good to have them back. Several miles down river from this eagle nest is another eagle nest with an adult on the nest.
I rode the Trek tonight. That steely goodness felt great!
This weekend I discovered the visor on my helmet snaps off. Here it is with the visor on:
Here it is with the visor off (much more streamlined!):
I did get to do a club ride on Sunday. I rode over to Leo High School and met up with the club - there were probably close to 50 riders! After 10 miles riding all together, the 20 milers turned back, while the fast group and the not-so-fast group continued on for another 10 miles, before heading back. I rode with the not-so-fast group. We rode in a double pace line. Once we turned around, Larry and I rode in the front to help break the wind (no, not BREAK WIND) for the others. The ride leader yelled at Larry and me to slow down! Wow, that went right to my head. We got back to the high school at 41 miles since leaving it, but I did a little extra before I got home, so my ride totaled 53 miles.
