Good time on Mill Creek Streamway Trail

Looking for someplace new for the wife and I to ride this morning, I chose Mill Creek. This trail is one of the longer ones in the KC area, stretching about 17 miles end-to-end. The southern terminus is just a few blocks from our old apartment. The northern end is on an island (if you want to call it that) in the Kansas river. It's your typical 8-foot-wide asphalt multi-use path. For the most part, it's very flat and has quite a few long straightaways.

We got there before 6:00 in the morning, before the sun was even thinking about coming up. Just a few short weeks ago, the sun would be almost fully visible by this time of the day.

We weren't out for very long, but we got a little more than 4 miles in. Sefauna's getting more comfortable on the bike. Our schedules and the weather limit her to mostly weekend riding if we wish to ride together, so it's still going to take a while for her to build up to longer distances. Maybe once it cools off in the evenings, that will change.

Yesterday's trip home was interesting. I got caught up in some last-minute stuff at work and lost track of time. I wanted to be home early so I had to rush to catch the A bus. No time to change clothes! I rode to the bus, then rode home from the bus stop (about 3 miles) in my work clothes. Not exactly pleasant, but not terrible, either.

Random Tunage:
Rank 1 - Airwave
Humpty Hump - Do the humpty hump

It's a treat when the mrs' ride with us. I have taken mine into the city and got a few "I'll never ride with you agains". She adjusted pretty quickly and actually ended up enjoying urban riding.

Correction, sir. That would be Digital Underground (feat. Humpty Hump) - "The Humpty Dance"

I know Shock G was with DU. I've heard/seen the song credited to so many different versions of Shock G, Digital Underground, Humpty Hump, etc) and called by various names such as "Humpty Hump", "the Humpty dance" and "do the hump" that I don't even bother. This particular MP3 was recorded off of an internet radio stream back in 2002 or so and that's the ID3 info that was on it when I got it. Not being a Digital Underground connoisseur (and abhorring most urban-inspired music in general), I didn't bother figuring out what the correct name of the song was. Thanks, though.
