i thought i was going solo today, but on my way out to the highway i ran into brandon and chose to ride with him. we did our usual out and back to glendale without the benefit of dan's towing service. the hills were a little more daunting without a strong engine to follow, but we made it.
on the way back, we found a pair of pliers on the side of the road. a great find for me since my pliers had somehow come up missing after our move.
when brandon peeled off to go home, i went ahead and added a few more miles, looping out by the cemetery and back around through town on 61 and 54. (21.47 @ 16.7mph)
