i enjoyed a quick out and back to glendale this morning with brandon and dan. we took it pretty easy most of the time, talking as we rolled along. when we got back to dillon's brandon went home and dan and i went hunting for other riders. when we didn't find them, we decided to go south on 281 so i could experience the uphill at the edge of town. it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. i still fell behind dan some, but enjoyed the ride.
we rode back into town and took a could of laps around lemon park. as we started the second loop, justin caught us. that makes four cyclists i've met since moving here! we left the park and rode back south to lake road. we climbed the nasty little hill there and then i turned off to head home while justin and dan went out for more.
i zigged and zagged back to howard and then, because of traffic on 54, took a block detour to the east to get across. after i left 54 behind, i made it home in no time at all. i pulled into my driveway at 8:00 just as i'd planned. (32.80 miles @ 17.0mph)
