Labor Day was filled with some riding, some working and some birthay party! The day went really fast. I did work in the morning. There wasn’t much, so it was easy to clean out. Then we decided to go riding. We had plans to go to the lake.
Things were going well, but then I started to develop a headache and my shoulder stinger came back. I wasn’t enjoying the ride at that point. It was obvious that I was slowing John down, so about 9 miles in, I decided to separate and have him continue on to the lake and I started circling back to home. John had some ibuprofen, so I took that for the headache.
I did mostly road riding on the way home. Here are some shots of road riding that I don’t think I have shown before.
Lots and lots of goldenrod now:
Right along a busy road, there is a nice pond. Usually there are herons and egrets here, but of course, none on this day
It was really hot and kind of humid. Sure didn’t feel like September! My headache went away after a while into the ride thanks to the ibuprofen, but the shoulder was annoying. Sometimes I just get tired of having issues, you know what I mean?
I popped back on the path:
Riding is always good for the soul:
Anyway, I still ended up with a little over 20 miles on the ride. September 1 is one of the nieces’ birthdays, so we headed down to Saratoga in the evening for pizza and cake. I was asked to make the cake. I need to get a cake carrier, because I had to carry it on my lap on the way down! It would have been a very tasty airbag if I had needed it.
Logan is 15 years old now. Not sure where the time goes!
