Took the bike out for the first ride of the year. It was around 60ºF and a little breezy but beautiful. No real goal of this ride but to get out there and ride. Heading east I saw lots of wildlife and heard lots of birds. I surprised a flock of wild turkeys at one point. Most of the ponds are still ice-covered and there are a few mounds of snow around but it will all be gone soon. The fields are all brown with just a hint of light green in places.
The legs protested a bit on the few hills but I still rode a respectable 15.7 miles in an hour and eleven minutes.
The Garmin worked well but I think I’m going to change a couple of the data fields. I don’t really need to know the grade or the temperature. I think I’ll get rid of those and add maximum speed.
Been a good first day.
