Day 27 High Hopes

Day 27 Ram closeup
This Ram had high hopes for a treat.  Next time.

It’s still below normal  with temps in the mid 50’s.  The weather will continue to improve for my 30 days of biking, culminating with a 65 degree day for riding NYC on Sunday. I planned on riding a new route beginning at yoga and adding 10 miles to my workout.  Things didn’t pan out so I did one of the standard 26 mile rides.

It was hit and miss with the wind.  It’s wasn’t bad for the most part, but there are sections of the route that are wide open farm land.  Whenever I rode into one of those areas, it was a struggle to maintain anything over 11 or 12 MPH.  That and a couple of the hills conspired to keep my average for the ride at just under 14 MPH.

I hadn’t planned on doing any stopping, sans Lloyds Market, but the animals were out in numbers today and being the sucker I am for good animal photos, I ended up making four or five quick stops.

The little guy above saw me stop, took a look and began meandering my way.  As he got closer we spoke to each other baaaa-ing our feelings.  He let me scratch his ears in the hopes I’m sure of a treat.  From now on I’ll be packing something for them and the horses.
