Adventure Bike (Pavé/gravel/rail trail) 2:45:00 [3] 36.3 mi (13.2 mph)

And it suddenly turned into summer.
Pleasant ride to McGregor area then Essex. The wind changed so we had more than our fair share of resistance training.
Sometimes I envy those who were Everesting this weekend: at some point they would get to coast ;)

Last winter I purchased a pair of SPF 50 white leg covers (I am terrible at reapplying sunblock during a ride). I wore them once in Florida in early March. Today I could only find one. Now what? Alternate legs on the hour?

Adventure Bike (Gravel/pavé/rail trail) 7:15:00 [3] 88.4 mi (12.2 mph)

First ride to Merlin of the season! The winds were forecasted to be relatively light, for once. And low and behold, they were. Actually, at one crossroad where we stopped to take pictures, there was no wind. Bizarre! There were several sections of fresh gravel.....I was joking that it was a good thing we didn't bring any recent converts to gravel with us, as they would probably be cursing the whole time.
In Merlin, the usual (tiny) grocery store we go to for snacks was open, but only for pre-ordered items. Fortunately, we caught the owner at a slower time and as he was outside giving another customer their (beer) order, he took Paul's order and brought it out. Meanwhile, I was scoping out other options (eg. the ice cream stand :) ) and someone hollered at me from a parked pickup truck....it was a well-liked former co-worker for both Paul and I (it is a small town!). It was good catching up with him and his wife (heck, talking face to face with to a stranger would be exciting right now!)
It certainly wasn't overly sunny on the ride there (essentially no sun), but we could see the fog over Lake Erie. As we were eating our lunch, the wind picked up a bit, blowing the fog in off the lake. Brrrr. Eventually the fog broke up and we were back in the sunshine as we rode south of Wheatley where the lake has been overflowing into the yards of residents (it had receded enough that they could mow their lawns now).
For the first time since the National Parks closed, we rode past the entry to Point Pelee, and it was barricaded off (they are repairing the road in there too now). I had hoped to pop into Wheatley Provincial park on the way by, but could see lots of cars parked on the roadway, so figured it would be crazy busy. The doors on the pit toilets at Two Creeks Conservation Area were bolted shut, but there were some people there enjoying the trails.
A nice day for a ride, but I was glad I had arm covers, especially when riding in the fog.
When we got home, I checked my weather apps.....18C in Kingsville, 30C in Timmins where my son is working for the summer. Gee whiz!

Gravel Bike (pavement) 32:00 [3] 7.32 mi (13.7 mph)

A manager from work was quizzing me on the stage of the winter wheat crop, so I went for a short tour after work to check it out. Best guess....harvest will start July 7.

Gym time 20:00 [3]

TRX and dumb bells.

I wondered if I was expected to start heading back to the office next week, but the short answer is no. And that is fine with me! I do have a plan with a couple co-workers how we can set ourselves up in an unused part of the office, well spaced out. Maybe in another couple weeks (or if the province moves to Phase 2) we will start going to the office 1-2 days/week. The collaboration that comes from overhearing each other's conversations with customers is what is missing as we are working from home.
