Double Post today. Increased frequency = quality reduction. This time I got pictures.
Left the house in shorts, a base layer and a jersey. Under the I-40 bridge this dude came roaring by me on a gas powered bike. I tried to catch up before the light and get a good picture but he plunged directly into traffic. This is the best shot I got.
This was the calm before the climbing storm. I'd not ridden the Warner Loop since I'd geared up and I got my ass absolutely kicked by the three substantial climbs on the loop. I didn't have to walk and the third climb actually seemed a lot shorter than I'd remembered but it was tough pushing the 42x16 up those hills. I briefly stopped at the overlook on the last climb.
Went back the same way I arrived, down Belle Mead, down the Richland Creek Greenway. Walked down a trail that passed under the elaborate bridge system and found a nice rocky patch to hang out on for a moment.
That's it. Happy Thanksgiving.
