It’s now during the day on April 1, the first day of the 30 Days of Biking challenge. I am sitting in a branch of the public library after riding my bicycle from home. The library is about 2 miles from my home.
So technically, I’ve ridden my bike twice today, though I still think of last night’s ride home from work as being yesterday, March 31. The ride, though, was after midnight.
Today is extremely windy. The wind is coming straight out of the west, and this library branch is west of home, so the ride was slow, especially with three busy streets to cross without the benefit of a traffic light. It took 25 minutes to ride 2 miles. I could have run it faster than that. But I still would have had to cross those three busy streets.
