Adventure Bike (Gravel/pavé/rail trail) 6:07:00 [3] 76.25 mi (12.5 mph)

Yesterday was Paul's last day of work.....onto retirement now! This morning we both managed to register for the Land Run 100 in Oklahoma in March. 100 miles of red we had better keep riding as much as we can to keep the endurance up. Paul will now have the "luxury" of being able to get some miles in whenever there are a few hours of nice weather throughout the fall and winter. I will keep my Sorel winter boots and ski helmet on standby for weekend rides in sub-zero temperatures.

Today was a surprisingly hot ride out to Wheatley then east to the Merlin area. Strong SW winds meant we had a headwind for the return trip, but it was very welcome as it cooled us down. Paul has had his worst cold of the year for the last week, and took one last dose of cold med this morning......and he felt like napping for most of the ride. So short of putting him on tow, we just puttered along.

I had mapped out a 40 mile route on Map My Ride for a gravel event to be held this fall. It was neat to have the turn by turn directions on my Garmin chirping at me, based on the lines I drew on a map. One intersection is supposed to be under construction this fall, but I will leave it on the route for now....maybe it will just be a hike-a-bike on the day of the event (it should be on a Sunday, so I doubt there will be active construction that day).

We stopped in Wheatley on the way back to refuel. Paul went into Kim's Convenience (not the one on CBC) for some water and it was so hot waiting in the parking lot, the sweat was running down my face. We refueled with a sub from Subway, then rode home into an approaching weather system (but just got a sprinkle of rain).

Banded Goose road ride.....some was very fast, and into the wind. Then I chilled a bit at the back with a couple other riders.

Best laid plans for an evening bike ride were tossed aside when I realized our backyard was THE place for Monarch butterflies to rest for the night. Just wow.
Turned out that they didn't show up at Point Pelee tonight, but thousands were hanging out in trees from Leamington to Holiday Beach.
So many people got to enjoy them in their backyards tonight.
I still can't get my head wrapped around them flying to Mexico.

Adventure Bike (Gravel, single track) 1:10:00 [3] 12.6 mi (10.8 mph)

Scouting for the gravel event I'm planning with a LBS for the fall. The single track at the conservation area is clay and was very greasy in this light drizzle. Clay trails ain't like MI mountain bike trails. I will stick to the grassy areas and avoid the single track in the plans.

Hockey 45:00 [3]

puck and stick drills, keep away drills, then some stuff on positioning (which was sort of like teaching 3 year olds how to square dance, I suspect).
