Talk about a beautiful night for a ride! With the Bass Pro Shop grand opening going on here in Olathe tonight, I decided to stay very far away from any roads that people would be using to get there. All of my normal commute routes take me within half a mile or so of the new shop, so I took College Blvd across to Ridgeview tonight. For those of you who aren't from around here, that doesn't mean much. I also took a little trail and rode through a residential area just for giggles.

College Blvd at night is a bit scary, especially for about a mile where it's down to one lane either direction with no shoulders and lots of hills and no street lights. It was a little tense for a while. The additional hills and scenery were a welcome change to my usual grind, and it was deliciously cool out, around 50 degrees. Cool enough that I don't overheat, warm enough that just my t-shirt and backpack provided enough protection. If it stays above 45 (it probably won't) overnight, I won't even bother with a windbreaker.
