Another Nice Spring Day

Tonight I showed up at Mt. Clemens High School where some folks often meet up for a ride to Metro Beach and back, but this time I ended up making the ride myself. It was a really nice night for a ride, with a relatively empty path, not too strong of winds, and perfect low 70s temperatures.

Including time spent poking around in the parking lot before leaving, riding a few circles to stretch my legs afterwards, and poking around the end of the peninsula at the park I ended up riding the 17.62 mile route in just over 1:10, averaging 15 MPH. Not bad, but I’m sure I could do better if I was feeling up to it. For some reason I’ve been feeling as if I’m getting sick or having bad allergy problems, so a good part of the ride was made with a headache and runny nose. Hopefully that’ll go away soon.

All in all, this was a rather nice day. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back out to Stony Creek for some single track riding tomorrow, but we’ll see how that goes. It’ll involve changing tires, and if I’m not feeling too hot I won’t push it.

I sure could use a bike for this kind of riding… If only I wasn’t being overly cautious about spending big chunks of money I could get another bike…
