Last night’s Green Drinks at the Green Center in U-City was kind-of far away, and there was a chance of rain in the forecast, but I’d made up my mind to bike there. Then I plotted a route and saw that it was 10 miles, one way. Twenty miles in one night when I’ve been doing very little riding (other than the sitting on my butt in the car variety)? Gulp.
I gave myself a choice: bike there or don’t go. Although I hesitated because of the distance, I was really itching to get on my bike. (Here it is, Bike to Work Week, and I’m stuck on the sidelines.)
Turns out, it was a gorgeous night for a ride, perfect temps to not be cold and not get sweaty. We encountered a bit of rain on our return ride, but it wasn’t too bad. And the 20 miles? They flew right by, no problem!
