Notes on this week's bike rides

 258 lbs
(Momma Turtle burying her eggs right next to the bike trail)
(It had rained the night before so she decided it was a good day to lay her eggs)
(Good job Momma Turtle, I'll keep an eye on your nest for you!)

  • I have biked every single day since last Monday (Friday July 6th doesn't count)
  • My appetite has increased w/ exercise and my weight has decreased w/ exercise (current weight posted above)
  • Found a Momma Turtle covering up her nest while out biking (various pictures posted above)
  • No one has passed me on the bike trail while I've been biking for over a year now (there were a couple of close calls though:
            gangs of 10-speeders in slick suits and a retiree moving flat out in a Recumbent Bicycle)
  • At the end of my ride I discovered one of my fingerless bike gloves sitting on the ground behind my car (*)
  • Driving home I noticed in my rear view mirror that the top flap of my bike bag was flapping in the wind (*)
  • Last night's storm lowered the temperature by 15 degrees (and made a huge mess on the bike trail)
  • I like that the Valley Park PD patrols the bike trails (even if it is inconvenient dodging cop cars on the trail)
  • When I work out it is a combination of Weightlifting and Bicycling (Rambler weighs over 75 lbs)
  • I think of myself as a Cruiser (bicycling as a way of life and as a fashion statement, David is stylin')
  • I dropped my MP3 handlebar Speaker Bag and it no longer works (but it may just need new batteries)
  • I may actually prefer biking with only 1 ear bud (listening to music AND maintaining situational awareness)

* actually the same bike ride
