It was a bright, sunny, warm day yesterday (70 degrees or warmer), with very little wind, and it was November 1. This is crazy. So my lovely wife and I decided to get out and go for a ride in the afternoon. We took the 14-miles “scenic river route” that we ride sometimes, and it was a very enjoyable afternoon. My left calf kept feeling like it was on the verge of cramping, but I kept stretching it out, and it never did actually knot up.
Found out later in the afternoon that my brother and sister-in-law have recently bought bikes–cool! He bought a bike rack, too, so maybe someday they can come out for a ride.
