We got a late start this morning because I was helping a friend change a tire but realized at the last minute she had the wrong size tubes (courtesy of the bike shop where she bought her new bike!). We stopped by Sportsbasement on our way to the bridge and they fixed it up so we could get moving. We modified our route to include part of Headlands and the roads on the back side. The rest of the way up Headlands is closed for construction until mid-summer but it will be better riding after, as they are finally fixing potholes! Our ride was shorter than we’d planned but the wind and minimal, constant, uphill grade from the back side of the beach to the bridge gave me a good workout. I tried to use MapMyRide to display our route, but it’s not working, as usual! At the end of the ride, one of us had to return to work and the other two of us stopped at the warming hut for a quick coffee. We snapped a quick picture on the bridge before going our separate ways!
15 miles, including long flat and climbing, 1:30 hr

The verdict on my new exercise dress from Nuu-Muu… super cute and comfy! worked well with bike pants underneath and layers on top, then converted into stylish city-ware for the rest of my day with skinny jeans and a black sweater. (shouldn’t I be a sales rep for them or something??)
