It's been way too long since I've done a night ride, let alone night gravel. After Avery's orchestra concert I was off on the Evergreen. Get this...it wasn't raining! Nor was it windy! With the cooler and wet weather I haven't really noticed how long daylight sticks around. I didn't need to turn my lights on till 8:30 or so. Around 9:00 the bugs came out. Open mouth breathing was risky at this point.
I realized I had forgotten my phone about mid ride. Not a big deal but I said I would be back sometime around 9:30. Had I had my phone I would have pushed East and North just a bit more. It was one of those nights. Nonetheless I got 3 hours in. Having had 3 days off the bike and one easier ride my legs were feeling great. I'll get out again today for a longer ride.
This morning I have a breakfast event to attend at Brinna's school. I was to work till noon today but the school event trumps that. This afternoon/evening Harper has a school picnic/graduation thing. Busy week of school activities!
A week from today I will head down to Emporia, KS for the the DK 200. I'm ready and excited! Now I just need to stop obsessing about what tire width to run!
