Jul. 4th, 2004 @ 11:07 pm Two things
1) I went for a 15 mile bike ride today. I used to sneeze a 15 mile ride. This one was hard. I was climbing a not-to-steep hill at 7 miles an hour and another guy flew by me at twice my speed. But, hey, I was out there. Now, I will now go riding twice in the same week.

2) I used a bunch of duct tape yesterday. Not normally unusual, but I actually used it for taping ducts.

how I miss riding. My bike provides a lot more resistance after having sat outside of hoyt during our rainy summer last year, so I haven't been riding it. When I get my new bike, I'll do more riding. I'm still deciding whether I want a road bike or something for heavier use.

Good to hear you're back on the bike. I'm working on trying to sneeze out a century by the end of summer. Perhaps sneeze isn't really the right term...

Anyway, I'm not sure if you've been out to the Great Swamp to ride, but there's a really nice 40 mile loop there that the state puts out maps for.

Great Swamp

I just filled out a postcard to get that route. I've done a lot of riding around the Swamp on my own--when I'd ride to Drew from my old place I had to go through it. I grazed it on the 15 miler this weekend, actually. When I turn it into a 25 miler I'll cut through the swamp.
