BIKE HIKE LOG

Dist: 18.5 mi. Avg spd: 16.7 mph. Cadence: 88 rpm. Conditions: Sunny, breezy, 55 degrees. Route: circuits around Eagle Creek Park. iPod listening: Pat Metheny.

Notes: The trees were vibrant in the sun. I could have ridden until dark, but responsibilities called. A rode past at least 12 deer; one just stood in the roadway and watched me ride past. I caught up with my ex-brother-in-law, Greg Retter, toward the end of my ride. A 52-year-old triathlete, Greg trains in Eagle Creek Park. He completed the Wisconsin Ironman triathlon a few months ago. Always great to ride with him and catch up on things.
