Waiting for the river path to dry out might not have been the best plan. I was surprised to see a decent number of big puddles and there are quite a few leaves down and determined to hold as much moisture as they can. It's a bit odd to have so many leaves on the ground without really seeing much colour. Basically I traded a bit less damp for 10C warmer.

I road mostly in the north end, heading back ahead of the commuters.

Finished Habitat early today so I knew my legs could handle another hour, not especially quick mind you.

More woman than men volunteering to build today. Maybe a warm up for 'Womem Build' which starts Wednesday. Lots of new pink hard hats arrived today along with brand new tool belts. 70-100 women are scheduled each of 6 build days over a 9 day period.

Sunrise river ride.

Respiration seemed to be the limiting factor today - likely the accumulation of allergies to fall grasses. Very quite out this morning. And foggy for the first half hour.

Road cycle warm up/down (Brompton ) 15:00 [1] 3.0 km (5:00 / km)

A quick test run after cleaning the dessert off of it and patching the flat, which looks suspiciously like a pinch at the valve when it was installed.

I hadn't put compression on so it was interesting to see how quickly my calf started to swell even riding easy.

Today's big Habitat job was moving stairs. The construction stairs were put in the wrong place to allow us to put in the second story walls.

Translation of my bike names:
Big Unit: 29er mountain style 1 speed, usually set with free wheel hub because gearing is to small for my legs to keep up on down hills.

Goldie: gold fixie built on a KHS frame.

Greenspeed: X5 steers like a go cart and is the most fun you can have on a pushie. It is a bit to short to be road safe.

Smokie: Specialized road bike: S Works SL2, full dura ace, Zipp 404

Stumpjumper: what the name says, S Works version

Cross Bike: This is a Wilier Cross bike my wife bought me as a spare. I run it with knobby tires and egg beaters in winter and for summer switch it to road tires and speedplay zeros. It has a less aggressibe setup than Smokie.

Vinnie: mid 80s mountain bike. No suspension. Mostly original parts, though I changed the bottom bracket and replaced the pedals that had smashed into too many rocks and curbs. I use this as a dirty bike - bad weather, rides the roof of the car to far away places and generally gets all manner of abuse.

I'm not currently using any of my other bikes for training. I have a write up comparing these, a BikeE and a Bachetta that you can read using the link below.
