The government is not one monolithic thing. It’s a bunch of people, thinking they’re doing their jobs.
Headed to Sacramento, clouds obscured the land below, so I looked up.
I won’t be biking to work today, the first work day since Fathers’ Day. I figure 633 miles would be a bit extreme.
We went to visit Mousse again yesterday. It was my second visit, Ashley’s third. Mousse continues to get bigger and more lovable (if possible).
She melted into Ashley’s arms, feel asleep in her food dish, and then napped with a couple of her siblings.
What a cute puppy! I can’t wait until Ashley brings her home.
I bought a new cycle computer to replace the one I dropped today. It’s time to record my miles so far this year.
- 165 miles — old bike
- 75 miles — Sage, old computer (not bad for having her just over a week)
- 0 miles — Sage, new computer
Total: 240 miles this year. And the smileage keeps increasing. :-)
Looks like I’ll be shopping for a new one. Maybe this one. I wonder if it fits in the mount already on Sage.
Yesterday, I moved my lights to the new bike; this evening I moved over the cycle computer. I wasn’t sure I wanted to. Riding without knowing my speed these past few days has been fun. I could pace myself based on the effort I wanted to expend. And based on that effort, my new bike Sage feels faster. I guess now I’ll find out for sure.
I used Strava on my smartphone to map and measure my bike commute today, including my regular Starbucks detour. It was pretty much what I thought, except I forgot to turn Strava off when I arrived at work, so I can also tell you far it is from where I lock my bike to my cube — and how fast I walked on the way.
I thought that might be a problem when I set off this morning. I don’t know whether I could ever train myself to start and stop Strava every time. For that matter, I might not have my smartphone with me every time I rode my bike.
Before the transfer, I recorded the odometer reading. Looks like I biked 165 miles this year on her. 1
After the transfer to Sage, I reset the odometer to include only the 48 miles I’ve already biked on her. No more confusion whether I’ve really biked 23,000 miles on my bike. ;-)
Tell me about your biking adventures so far this year. Any new gear or new rides? Or maybe just a new attitude about riding?
Cheating Ourselves of Sleep. Mom was right. Get your sleep.

Enjoyed by me. :-)
