Kirsty's Aquatic Bike Move

Ok, no photos - it was too blasted wet. This was a long ride for me. I left my place and rode 10 miles to Tomas' apartment near Mt. Tabor. Then we rode from there to North Portland to pick up a trailer from one of the Shifties, and then rode to NW Portland to Kirsty's OLD place. Then the work started. Well, after doughnuts. We loaded up, and there ended up being a lot more people than anyone really expected. Then usual crowd - Timo, Ken, Steph, Kirsty, Brian, Emily, Steve, and those of us who don't seem to be at every Shift event. ;-) Tomas, Sonia (who I met today), and myself. Oh, and I know I'm forgetting one or two others. It rained from just before I got to Tomas' place until just after we got to Kirsty's, and sprinkled a bit afterward. I stopped raining completely before we'd finished the move, and then everyone retired to the local pub in SE Portland.

I had a long, dark ride home, but since I had a spare set of gloves, my hands were dry and the uphill effort warmed me up fairly quick.

Total mileage: 34.36 miles
Total time on the bike: 3 hours 42 minutes
Weight this morning: 247 pounds

Since I haven't been riding, my weight crept back up, and I'm starting to lose some muscle tone. I've got 83 miles so far this month, though, and I rode 24 miles in the last 2 weeks of December, so I'm on the recovery road.
