I took the road bike out for a spin, up here near the house. It's the first time that I have gone riding on two consecutive days, in months. It felt good.

I rode across the highway to Oak Flat, and went all the way around to Anaya, and back to the highway at the Ponderosa Restaurant. I turned around there, and went back to Gonzalez, and rode it across 217 until it turned into dirt. A dog charged me at one point, and I didn't see him until he was about 8 feet away. Luckily, a stern "NO", stopped him in his tracks, because I had no time to take any evasive action, and if he wanted to, he could have bitten me, and there would have been no way for me to stop him. I need to be on my toes.

I gave this ride a decent effort, charging up the little hills, as best I could. I felt a lot stronger than yesterday, mostly because I was on the road bike instead of the mountain bike, and because I didn't have 10 pounds of mud sticking to everything.

It was another sunny, warm, wonderful day. It was so nice, that I wore shorts, and short sleeves. Excellent!
