Sep-11: Blue Skies, etc. 103-km perm-pop

Severe clear day.
Blue, blue skies.
Not even a hint of a cloud in the sky.
Everything green and fresh.
53F at the start; 83F at the finish.
Just perfect for a ride.

So that's what I did.
Went for a ride.
With a rando fracquaintance.

We enjoyed the day.
Chatted a fair bit about our respective needs to vary our cycling routes.
And we took an entire hour more than we have sometimes taken.
We REALLY enjoyed the day.

And today had a hell of lot better outcome than 11 years ago on this date -- when I was headed north on I-95, intending to loop the Pentagon and then back-track a few miles to my destination (that was the fastest way to get to a place a few miles south of the 5-sided-building).  You might be able to guess that I never made it as far as the Pentagon.
