Ride Details:
Distance: 22.96 miles
Top Speed: 31.1 mph
Average Speed: 11.9 mph
Time on Bike: 1 hour, 55 minutes, 35 seconds
Temperature: 52 degrees F dropping to 48 by ride end
Weather: Dry & Wet depending on whether it got rained on. It never rained on me during the trip home, though.

Matt Details:
Feels: Kind of tired - worked my muscles good. Going to be sore tomorrow.
Total 2006 Mileage: 999.43 (1,000 miles - WooHoo!) Ok, not quite - but tomorrow morning!
Total Time in the Saddle: 92 hours, 42 minutes
Average Miles per Day: 12.49

Notes:
A long ride home - I took the route less hilly, and that made all the difference. Seriously, though - I'm not taking this route again. It was fun, and actually quite scenic. The problem, though is that traffic is pretty heavy and a long section of the route has no shoulder, so it's reasonably dangerous with cars and the occasional truck whizzing by at 45 mph.

The ride went well, though, and I feel pretty good considering. I'm going to try a couple other ways back later in the week.

Are these solo endeavors or is Tomas along?

Mostly solo, safeT. I always mention Tomas in the notes when we ride together now, since we don't commute together anymore.

It's a bit of a bummer - it was nice having a daily riding buddy.

That's too bad. I haven't even got my bike off the hooks in the garage yet, this year.

So wet. And my legs are fairly well in shape from DDR. But as the weather improves I'll do it!

Is Tomas off on his own or still rooming with you?

Off on his own, which is why we don't commute together anymore.
