Turkeys and Rabbits and Roadkill, Oh My!

Went out for a good ride yesterday morning with Nathan and saw all of the above. The weather was pretty perfect for biking - overcast, not too warm, although quite humid. The rain held off as we made our way around the Concord area, looping on a 10-mile time trial course, then back through Weston, Belmont, and Cambridge. All in all, the ride was 58 miles. After biking to and from a BBQ in the afternoon, I put 72 miles on the bike yesterday. Needless to say, last night I was feeling that good kind of exhaustion. In about an hour, Nathan and I and maybe others are going back out for another 30-40 miles. Putting these miles on the legs back-to-back is starting to give me a better perspective on what this summer will be like - challenging - but I love it. Maybe I'll bring the camera out today.

Side note: we will be able to receive mail on the road if you want/need to send anything along. Mail drops are posted here. I've also put a link to the mail drop list on the left side of my blog and list the places and dates here:
