Ride to a ride

Holly wanted to get in a short ride today, and I wanted more than the 10 miles she meant by that, so I biked 13 miles to Burnt Hills, rode 9 with her, and then biked 13 miles back home, for a total of 35. That was the longest ride of the year so far, and it felt pretty good. There was a strong (20-30 mph) tailwind northbound, and a tough headwind coming home. At times it was a gusty crosswind, making holding a line difficult, especially across the Western Gateway Bridge. This ride is a good mix of urban, suburban, and rural cycling, and they all have their interesting points. All drivers were very courteous under all circumstances today, and I really think a lot of that is about clearly communicating intentions.
