I got the bad news over with first thing in the morning today. I overslept, despite two alarms being set, and missed the arrival of the babysitter (I called her back as soon as I woke up sufficiently) and I missed the morning lap swim at the town pool.
But the good news is that I did get in a bike ride in, had no accidents nor breakdowns, and there were even a few glimpses of blue skies out there!
This osprey was diligently tending her nest and mewing plaintively at me. Even though they look like fearsome birds and are incredible aviators, they have the most pathetic wimpy cry.
I had a new discovery today on the road with the bike computer.
If you mount the holder upside-down, the computer part fits in just fine but it will never, ever work that way. After I installed the new one I thought that I had another broken wire somewhere, and was I ever MAD!
But I was just going in reverse. So for most of my ride I read the numbers upside-down. That worked better than a right-side-up display of all zeroes. I'll get the bike swapped around backwards to fit the computer before my next ride.
