After the fun hike with a great bunch of people on Saturday, to Thimble Peak, I did a very short ride on Sunday just to kind of "reorient" the ligaments, bones and all else impacted by the hike. Followed that by finding a $20 dollar bill on the pavement....how about that!!! Then another short ride on Monday and finding all systems were agreeable....
.....got in a 61 mile ride, 2000'+ climbing, on Tuesday with a climb to Gates Pass. I declined going down the west facing side as then I'd have to climb back up or go way over to Picture Rocks Road for the return. There being a "Red Flag Alert" for high winds moving in, I didn't want to get caught out in that so made it back in breezy conditions and THEN......
.....came home to find a wine box that I ordered had been delivered. Every time I visit a restaurant or wine shop and see one of these boxes, I always think it'd be nice to have one so now I do. Have no idea where I will place it but the Amster has promised to lend her inner decor eye to the project. Also received new bike tires and cleats for the bottom of my bike shoes. Then.....looked at the extended forecast for Solvang, CA for when I'll be there for a cycling vaca and it looks fantastic. Really hope it holds. Well, that's about it gang.
