Great evening!

I got out of work a little after 3:00. When I departed, I knew I'd be faced with headwinds at about 10 MPH, but the temps in the mid-high 60's more than made up for it. I took off down Broadway and did the old Merriam Lane to Turk Creek route. Despite the headwind, I kept a pretty decent pace for riding the Outlook.

When I got home, I found the DiNotte waiting for me, which I wasn't expecting until later this week. Giddy as a school girl, I knew I'd have to try it out tonight. After grabbing a quick bite to eat, I made the ride to the Mexican joint that's now hosting our rides. We rode a little extra distance this evening to go ride past an old haunted mansion. Unlike our usual ride, there were a few high-speed runs and some gnarly death slogs. All in all, a good time and well worth the extra half-hour added to the ride. I made my return trip from the recovery ride all alone. My NiteRider started fading very quickly since I used it for an hour on my way to work, and sparingly on the darkest parts of the recovery ride. It doesn't take much to rack up 90 minutes of use. The last 5 miles or so of my ride home was done simply by the DiNotte, which held up very nicely.

Total miles today: a little over 57. That's what I call a good Monday.
