May 1st

Hooray! Hooray! The First of May! You know the rest of that chant. It was rainy this morning, but lightened up in the afternoon, so I squeezed in 11.5 km before dinner.

Blustery April Sunday

It rained A LOT this morning in a small amount of time. But then the forecast changed, predicting no rain until after 5, so I jumped on the chance for a short ride. And I got rained on a little bit anyways. Snaps Route You might need to tap or click the map to make it bigger.

Out to IKEA and back via the Ho Chi Minh Trail

It was pretty today. But cold when the sun wasn’t right on me. I headed east out towards IKEA and marveled at the completed work on the A3 — three lanes in each direction — and then headed over to my buddy’s house by way of what he calls the Ho Chi Minh trail down the hill from the overflow parking at the Uni-Klinikum. The timestamps from the bike cam are off by an hour because I didn’t get around to updating that for DST this year yet....

Less Spring in my Step

I had some brownies to drop off at a buddy’s house, so set off on one of the routes I’ve taken many times before: up some hills to the south, and then over to the west, and the follow the Danube most of the way back home. But this time, it wore my sorry butt out. Possible contributing factors: I think my rear tire is a little low on air — gotta rectify that before my next ride I did 18 unexpected kilometers on Friday after work I ain’t gettin' any younger or lighter (see the brownies above) Headwind — it was pretty steady for at least half of my route I’m taking it slowly for the rest of the day…maybe the week....

Closing out the week with river banks

I had a good chance to catch up on long-open work stuff this week, which was nice, but it might long hours of solo work in front of the computer. At the end of it, I needed to get some fresh air activity. It worked out nicely, timing-wise. I followed the Danube up on bank and down the other (as much as I could; the north bank was still closed off to bike traffic for much of the way due to construction, but that looks like it’ll be completed soon), crossing the Naab and the Danube at Mariaort....
