Some magical changes have been happening to this lifelong planner.
1. This year I am able to go out for a ride and not have a route in mind. Taking new roads and seeing where they take me.
2. As a single rider most of my rides kept me closer to home. Yesterday, not only did I cross the dreaded route 20, but I crossed route 2, sailing past Walden Pond and looping into Concord MA and back. Opening up a world of biking opportunity.
Thirty miles in an after work ride, with daylight to spare. Where will I go next?
