The weekend of rain ended and I got back on the bike today to ride the “Atascocita – Walden – Huffman” route for a total of 30.71 miles. The weather was friendly with mostly clear sky and 68 degrees. I bundled up with leg warmers, long sleeve jersey and windbreaker jacket. The jersey was a new thermal one from voler.com. I almost added a short sleeve jersey but decided it was not needed. That was a good decision and at the end of the ride my jacket was wet from sweat. The ride started at 12:29 after the early morning clouds lifted and finished at 2:42.
The wind wasn’t too strong today from the NW at 8 mph. It wasn’t much of a problem until I rode north west of Lake Houston through Atascocita and Kingwood. Riding across Lake Houston the wind was much cooler from the cool water.
I saw another biker while I was riding east over Lake Houston. I glanced to my left and briefly saw him through the traffic and didn’t wave.
Over the weekend I added a goal plugin to the desktop version of SportTracks program. This is the screenshot of the data.
With this plugin I can stop using Garmin Connect, the only online program I use that allows goals. This should simplify recording rides.
Tomorrow’s weather should repeat today but Thursday another cold front arrives. I plan on biking tomorrow. James Webster asked me if I was interested in gravel biking Friday or Saturday. I said yes but if the temperature is 50 or below I may change my mind.
