Bike-commute day 58—to gym and home

Monday, 25 July 2011.

Iron Horse Trail, Haverfield Canoy (horizontal, left)
to Spaulding Road (vertical, right).
Unexpected winds pushed back at me as soon as I left the parking lot, and it took unusual effort to get to the bikeway that parallels Haverfield Road (the marked crossing of Spaulding Road between American Sales Inc. and G.W. Smith and Sons). Once I had reached the shelter of the canopy and residences, the wind had less noticeable effect. Nevertheless, my ride to the gym and home was one of much lower intensity.

Glass over half the bikeway 0.1 mile south of Linden.  The fallen tree from this morning's ride had been cut and cleared away.
