I rode alone today. I took my usual valley route and rode through West Hills. I wanted to build up miles, not necessarily speed, so I rode around quite a few cul-de-sacs. I took my time and took in all the beautiful homes in the area. The weather has cooled off, so I wasn’t in a hurry to get back home before the sun came out strong. I hooked up with the Orange Line and rode all the way to Rinaldi and then headed back.

I logged 31.14 miles for the day. I can average about 30 miles and not feel totally exhausted. I remember when I first started riding, 16 miles felt like a lot, now it is just a warm up. I am up to 244.35 miles.
