Here Comes The Sun!
Who can tell how long it will last, but we rode in sunshine today. Not only did the sun actually rise and reveal itself from behind the endless clouds of the last week, but the difference in the time of sunrise is now significant: our lights are necessary and effective for barely ten minutes of the ride. By the time we get past the Art Museum Hill and on to Kelly Drive it is fairly light. By the time we got to the bridge it was pretty much full light, allowing us to continue around the loop via West River Drive rather than turning back along Kelly Drive. That adds about a mile to even our unfortunately quick morning rides like today.
