Bike Log, day 42: Rain

Today it was pouring on the way into work. I left my towel at home by accident. After wringing out my sweatpants, under-armor long sleeve shirt, gloves, and socks; I have said items hanging up around my cube somewhat inconspicuously. Except for the bright day-glow green jacket, which is probably the most conspicuous garment ever. I had to stop multiple times to make adjustments. It was raining more than I expected, so I threw my iPod into the bag to stay dry. I needed to adjust my right pant leg multiple times, as it kept catching on the top sprocket. In spite of this, I managed a time that was not my worst ever:

24:08, 6.6mi
55F, Odo 897mi
avg 16.3mph, max 25.3mph

The only thing that convinced me to ride today: I knew I'd break 900 miles.

[after work edit]
That's it, 902 miles.

18:25, 5.4mi
63F, Odo 902mi
avg 17.7mph, max 30.3mph

Oops, I forgot to check the cyclometer when I started, so it wasn't connected and I missed the first mile.

Well, if that bright day-glo green jacket means cars can see you and AVOID you, then that makes your Mom Very Happy!

love you,
