Finally, a ride!

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Today is warm (60-ish), not really windy (8 mph, SSW), and cloudy but no rain yet. It's supposed to be very windy tomorrow, so today was the day to ride & I will work in the yard tomorrow.

I'm lucky to live in an area with great cycling. I rode around the Columbia River (not all of it, obviously). Most of today's ride is also my commute into the Franklin County Court House from West Pasco.
Later in the season, I ride home along the south side of the river, especially when it's really windy. (The Pasco side has almost no protection from the wind; the Kennewick side has lots of trees.)

The ride was great. I stopped and stretched at one point, and then stretched again when I got home. My ITB wasn't as tight as I feared it would be (self-torture with a foam roller has paid dividends!). Tomorrow it's time to do yard work, but I'm already thinking about talking the Hub into going for a mountain bike ride down at Chamna.
This is a great place to live (until the Russian olives are in bloom).
