With Gail, north along the river. About 50, got the jacket out for the first time in a while. Legs tired, happy not to be going any faster.

Upper Road / Lower Road loop. Most of Lower Road has new pavement (used to be really bad) so thought I should try it out. Good effort all the way. Wind out of the WNW and freshening, but still mild, mid-60s.

With Gail, south because that's where the wind was coming from. Stopped at the school for a photo op (supporting a program at the school to encourage walking and/or riding a bike to school), then had a really nice chat with one of the teachers.

biking - dark blue bike 1:20:33 intensity: (1:14 @1) + (37:53 @2) + (40:19 @3) + (1:07 @4) 21.07 mi (3:49 / mi) +544ft 3:44 / mi
ahr:128 max:153 weight:136.5lbs

Started out with a plan to do a loop through Leverett with a few modest hills. Up the first little rise and it was clear I didn't want to do that, legs felt dead. Just getting old I guess.

So OK, I'll do a loop on the valley floor. But after 3 or 4 miles of that, I didn't have much enthusiasm for the flats either. What I really felt like was an all-downhill loop, or an e-bike.

On to plan C, head to the lower hills anyway, just get there a little more gradually. Started climbing, hmm, legs not so bad, keeping up a totally acceptable pace, putting out a decent effort, someplace nicely between dogging it and croaking. And so went the rest of the ride, quite the pleasant surprise.

Legs feel tired now, but that's OK.

ahr:97 max:116 weight:136lbs

With Gail, south of town, the preference usually to start out going into the wind. Ran into Tucker (figuratively) in North Hadley, stopped for a nice chat.

biking - dark blue bike 1:23:38 intensity: (3:58 @1) + (1:03:05 @2) + (16:19 @3) + (16 @4) 21.48 mi (3:54 / mi) +392ft 3:50 / mi
ahr:117 max:153 weight:136lbs

On my own today. Worked a little harder but not much, except for the last 5 miles coming back into the wind. Rather pleasant out, upper 60s.

A presentation yesterday evening by the state department of transportation regarding plans for the intersection in the middle of town. They want to convert it to a round-about, says it's more efficient and safer. I wonder what that means as far as bicycles are concerned.

There are a few other round-abouts in the area. Generally the provision for bikes seems to be some combination of sidewalks and crosswalks. Which seems about as dangerous as you can get. My general rule is it's safer just to claim space in the regular traffic lane, a mix of assertive and defensive riding.

This possible new one isn't going to happen right away, seems like at least 5 years and probably closer to 10. Would be nice to still be biking then.

With Gail, north. Nice pace.
