Thirsty Thursday Midtown. Tea; get some.

I stopped in at Republic Coffee at 10:00 a.m. October 11th is the $3 special menu day, celebrating RC placing top in the BOM coffee shops.

The $3 menu lasts all day. Get some. Thanks RC!

Then it was time for training day #2. I rolled out to the Greenline. My goal? 7 miles today (up from 5 miles last Saturday). Today I had some speed to push the bicycle. Well more than 5 m.p.h. speed like last weekend. Pushing past the Greenline mural,

I turned around. As I retraced my route, it started to rain. And I forgot my poncho. And the temperature is 58 degree’s outside. The older guy that rides daily (grey beard, orange reflective vest, rides in the street over the Walnut Grove / Union Bridge) was parked under a bridge. “I forgot my poncho!” I yelled as I passed him by. “Me too!” he replied. At least I wasn’t the only one getting soggy. I completed the 7 miles in 51 minutes, although slightly soaked. I am pleased with my time and progress.

Time to eat lunch, then head to work. See YOU back here for more tea, bikes, and warmer weather. Cheers.
