Cycling 50:00 [3]

Did the Sherman and 9th St thing again and it worked about as well as before, smooth sailing until construction took a couple of lanes out of action just NW of Chinatown. Then got onto Pennsylvania Ave for a few blocks and discovered how annoying it is feeling trapped in the central bike lane when it would otherwise be easy to opportunistically take a right turn. Will do my best to avoid that in future. MLK library on the way home.

Orienteering race 1:06:53 [4] 8.48 km (7:53 / km) +160m 7:12 / km

QOC Chase Black course - fourth on the black/unfair course. Felt good for first loop, not so good thereafter as the humidity, mostly, caught up with me. Maybe the beer too some. I think technically I mispunched on the second loop but I did it on the other one of the two controls that were coded as 104 so I get credit for the control despite that. Still, that demotivated me noticeably on the third loop when I finally realised what I had done the previous loop.

Cycling 50:00 [3]

Work commute. Tried taking Sherman Ave south to Florida then 9th St NW all the way to Pennsylvania on the way in this morning. After waiting for the first light on Sherman, the light timing gave me a non-stop ride to at least a couple of blocks past Florida and 9th with traffic fairly light and non-combative. Less shady than smaller streets but otherwise rather nice until truly downtown, which may be unavoidably a pain on any roue that crosses Pennsylvania east of 15th St.

Cycling 25:00 [3]

Came south largely using 11th St NW this morning. Less of a struggle though no faster, at least not significantly. Though I think finding a route that feels like less of a fight dominates speed as a measure of overall route desirability for the morning commute.

Cycling 26:00 [2]

Less intense parts of ride from new workplace to PCRM, largely along the Capital Crescent Trail, though this was the parts before and after that.

Cycling 20:00 [4]

Non-stop section of ride on CCT at high intensity - had an elliptical biker drafting me for the first bit then he passed me before easing off a few minutes later. Hadn't ever seen one of them go that fast before - the pedaling or whatever the correct term is makes a distinctive, somewhat alarming when you don't initially realise what is coming up behind you noise. Level 5 intensity might be justified - will have to deploy HRM sometime when I do this again and see.

Cycling 18:00 [3]

Cycling home from PCRM.

100th anniversary of the premiere of Le Sacre du Printemps

Cycling 50:00 [3]

Round trip commute to the new office on Virginia Ave SW. Tried my usual non rush hour route starting south on 16th St NW this time. Pretty unpleasant, especially in the beginning threading my way through three lanes of stop and go traffic heading south. Will try some routes downtown on smaller streets further east over the next while to see what's most pleasant.
