Another perfect day, best to take advantage of it.

Over to the lower hills on the west side of the valley, starting that section with Mountain Road, the section that cuts across a low ridge and ends up at the Northampton Reservoir. I'd been this way once before. There's one nasty section, rocks and erosion, but not too long, and last time I'd made it up, much to my surprise.

This time I thought I was going to make, and then suddenly I didn't, and I was off the bike with a distinct lack of grace. Also, fortunately, a distinct lack of damage to either the bike or me. Got back on, but before I really had things under control I was off again, this time with more grace than the first time but still glad, like the first time, that no one was watching.

Besides that it was pure pleasure, though even that section was fun in a strange way, failure sometimes being good for the soul. Legs felt pretty good.

Took a slight detour to inspect the progress of the Conway highway garage. Walter is the project manager for the town. Looked like they've just about finished blasting a bunch of bedrock, so pretty soon they'll be able to start actually building something. We've talked about the project a number fo times, nice to actually see the site.

I think today gets me over 3K miles for the year. Ought to make 4K, but no way I'm going to make over 5K like the last couple of years. Five weeks with no riding. Of course, if I had an e-bike and put it at level 3....

Bernardston to Brattleboro and back, north on Rt. 5, back on 142. Both have minimal traffic because the interstate is going the same way.

Nice day, almost a little chilly, about 60. Breeze from the NE, usual variability, probably with me a little more than against me, though I thought it might be more so -- 142 is mostly through farmland, but the wind there was more cross than I expected. But the first couple of miles heading back from Brattleboro and the last couple of miles on route 10 were really sweet.

Legs dead the rest of the day, certainly noticeable on the walk with Gail up a good hill in Bernardston.

Only time available to ride was early, so I waited until the temperature hit 50 and then headed out. Perfect morning, sunny with a light breeze from the north, and the legs were not so bad.

Fine outing with Walter. Rode up to his house to join up, then through the hills to the top of Massaemett Mountain. And then back the way we'd come. Gorgeous day, conversational pace, couldn't have been much nice.

Legs feel a little tired afterwards. We did go up a few hills.

To Northampton and back. Breeze from the south, down the zig-zag, back on River Road, so I had a little more wind helping than hurting. Included a couple miles chatting with a woman about bikes, mostly me extolling the virtues of mine and she being suitably envious. :-)

Got the timing just about right, as it was raining pretty hard about 15 minutes after I was done.
