The weather was excellent yesterday so I took my first bicycle ride of the year. I did what I call my "townie" loop into Smithville, around the golf course, to the high school, and then back New Home towards my home. I didn't do too poorly in my current fatboy shape. I averaged 16 mph at just under 14 miles for the run. Traffic was light and nobody yelled at me which is always a plus. The first roadkill of the season was a big striped cat just inside the city limits. It won't be the last. I saw a bunch of little kids playing with bb guns and much to their credit they didn't shoot at me. It was just a good smooth ride and I felt great afterwards. Please let the warm weather continue.
