The weather was 70° today, great day for a bike ride. There hasn’t been many good riding days lately, but I suspect I’ll start to get more and more of those beginning this week. I am still complying with the social distancing rules but was able to get a nice solo bike ride in.

Today was a trifecta of Porsche goodness. First my Boxster 986 was shown in a PCA video. I had an amazing drive with the top down. Second, I rode the 1998 Porsche Bike S for an hour around my neighborhood logging 11 miles. And third, I qualified second in a practice SIM race driving a 911. A good day for sure.

Even with the stay-at-home order during the global Pandemic, the state of Maryland allows for "outside exercise" which I took to mean a bike ride is ok. I decided to honor this mandate by riding close to my home. I really wanted to get in an hour ride around the airport loop, but instead just headed from my driveway and meandered around the neighborhood roads. But I still got in an hour and the 11 miles. The weather was fantastic and people were out walking about everywhere.
