1.6-miles (maybe plus an extra .01 or two) to the target location. 9m,00 sec in sun-bright conditions.
Severe-clear skies. Not a cloud to be seen.
Some follow-up to activity the night before -- not the exercise I documented, but the reason behind that exercise.
Upon completion of the follow-up, headed back to my hovel.
Oops, not quite to the stop-sign, I recall that there is a task I forgot to do.
0.3-miles, 1m,15sec to complete the "circle"-back.
A piece of equipment returned to its storage location.
Back on the bike.
Truly headed for my hovel.
Fingers get a bit chilly -- that didn't happen on the way to the target location.
I conclude that the breeze must have a significant North component.
1.6-miles, 8m,19sec for the return.
Into the wind, I pedaled harder, I guess.
Actually, I know.
Total distance and time-in-motion: 3.5-miles, 18m,34sec.
All standing. All in the 39/14 gearing. Almost all on sidewalks.
That's my story, and I reckon that I will be sticking to it.
