Spring Break is over and it's back to work. I wish we would have had nicer weather but we had some really nice moments over the last week or so; I even got a few bike rides in with the boys.
I almost wimped out Sunday because the winds were gusting to 35 MPH. On the way home from church I saw some other people out on bikes so I was kind of taunted into riding to my Dad's house. After I got home I was still in the mood to ride so I talked one of my sons into riding another 6 miles with me making the total 20 miles - not bad for a day I almost skipped riding...
The wind was bad a few places on the way home, but on the way to my Dad's house I could take advantage of the tail wind. So, I've been driving a car for just over 30 years and have never gotten a speeding ticket, haven't even gotten a warning. As I'm coasting down 67th street, where the speed limit is 25 mph, I noticed a police officer with a radar gun in the church parking lot at the bottom of the hill. I looked down at my computer and noticed I was doing 31.7 mph... The officer just smiled and waved, thankfully. I had a nice laugh with my Dad about that one, wouldn't it have been ironic to have gotten my first speeding ticket while riding my bike.
