Pandemic ride 5

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.

A little time in the Cayman GT4 Clubsport

Had a little downtime and did some first laps in the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport around Laguna Seca today. Challenging track and fun race car.

Great Porsche day

Pandemic ride 3

Another short ride around my neighborhood. I’m still trying to comply with the stay at home order. So I think this is as close to Disney World as I’m going to get.

Another neighborhood ride during the stay-at-home order today. I was able to sneak in 12.5 miles this time riding up and down every road I could find. Sure were a lot of cars driving around today when everyone is supposed to stay home...

Pandemic ride

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.

Recovery week

Last week was a week to forget. Got a flat tire on the Bike X and crashed the Bike S. And in two consecutive days. This week I’m back on the...
