Finally Friday Midtown. Time for a bicycle ride.

After nearly two weeks without a bike ride, I jumped on the bicycle this morning and headed east down the Greenline. The ride was good this morning. Finally I didn’t have to wear three sets of clothing to keep warm. When I arrived at work I was surprised that I made the 11.2 mile trip in record time. I cut four minutes off of my usual time. Wow. Time warp along the Greenline? I think so.

The ride back west along the Greenline was even better. The temperature outside was perfect for a ride. There were so many people out along the Greenline. I guess people couldn’t wait to get out in the warm weather.

The next movie I want to see? CHECK THIS OUT: The film “Bicycle Dreams” will be presented at the Brooks Museum 1/24/2012 at 7:00 p.m. The film documents “Race Across America”, racing from one coast to another in 10 days or less. Freaking awesome. Tickets for non-members are $12 in advance / $15 at the door. SIGN ME UP!
