I had been cooped up for a couple of days, so I was really looking forward to riding my bike. The day before I went out for a ride, but I didn’t get very far. As I left my driveway, I felt a couple of raindrops. I convinced myself that it was nothing, but a few blocks from my house I had to turn around. I didn’t want to get caught in the rain like before. It rained on and off for the rest of the day, so I was really looking forward to getting out today. Mentally, I had planned on going only to West Hills, but once I got there, I decided to ride to all the way to Chatsworth. It was a beautiful day, but I noticed quite a bit more traffic than last week.

It seems like I am not the only one who is getting tired of being cooped up. Yeah, I think more and more people are going to be hitting the road, especially since it’s California and we seem to be beating the odds when it comes to corona. I really enjoy riding my bike when there are not a lot of cars. It makes me motivated to ride as much as a possibly can while the roads are not as crowded as they usually are. Once I got to Chatsworth, I could have turned around and started back, but instead I decided to ride Plummer all the way to Topanga, making a loop. This was the farthest I had ever gone. I rode south on Topanga to Chase. There were quite a few cars on Topanga, so I took a right on Chase, less traffic and more scenic. Once I reached Shoup I followed it all the way home.

This was my longest ride so far and I am really starting to feel like an athlete.
