With Gail. We drove north a bit and then rode up into Vermont on the west side of the river. Wind from the north, low 60s, definitely felt like fall. Went by Vernon Green nursing home, I think it was Kissy's grandparents that owned/founded it??, looked nice and well taken care of. Also by the now closed nuclear plant. A few more hills than we usually do, which elicited a complaint or two from Gail, though she seemed to get up them just fine.
And both bikes fit in the back of her car with no disassembly required. :-)

Old Deerfield via South Deerfield, back via Cheapside. Missing my normal training partner as she, rightly so, decided a day off was called for after six days without a break.
No reason to to do something nuts, but it seemed like working a little harder would be a good thing. So I put out a good steady effort for the first hour, before easing up a little for the last 15 minutes. Seemed just about right.
