Ten Mile Saturday

I got up early (after waking up at 4 AM, finding that I fell asleep without turning off the light, drinking my tea, and brushing my teeth last night.) and went for a bike ride to various geocaches in the area.  I didn't find one in a rosemary bush, then I headed over to Lemon Grove to find the final and sign the log for a multi-cache I did back in September, but never completed.  Did that, then rode down Massachusetts to one I didn't find, then further along to one that I didn't find before, but I found this time. W00t, says I!  Then I headed across L.G. to one I thought I would have trouble with, but it was actually very easy.  I was coming down University when it suddenly went down to one lane.

A few seconds before this there were three SUVs in the bike lane, it would have been a great pic!



Is there a law about cyclists taking pictures while riding?



I think there is a parade today, the Helix High band is assembling!


After an enjoyable ride so far, with lovely courtesy from many vehicle drivers, I get this PERSON who decides to go straight from right turn lane, which caused me to yell many sarcastic epithets, but oddly enough I don't think I invoked any profanity.

I am the blue, they are the red.  The lane is quite clearly marked as a right turn only. Yes, the go-straight lane gets a choice of lanes on the other side of the street. It is not a fabulous arrangement.


Eventually I got home OK, and now I can rest!

The RunKeeper app says I did 10.05 miles in 1:35:24 at a Fastest Average Pace of 9.29 mph and burned 1,235 calories, although I must admit I didn't notice it was on "Run" and not "Cycling"...  The bike odometer says a little more. Close enough, says I!
