Smelter Road on a bicycle – getting colder

Today the weather is clear and sunny, with not much of a breeze. It was really a nice ride up. I went 9.75 miles today, with an average speed of 12.9 and a top speed of 35.1. I forgot to watch the total time, but it was about 40 minutes. On the way up I tried to go a bit faster than I usually do, and I passed up another biker on the hill. That felt good. The cooler air made for a comfortable ride. On the way back I did a lot more coasting, and at higher speeds. My chest is still cool from the windchill. I will have to start wearing a jacket soon.

I saw some plums on the way. They are hanging over someone’s back fence. They are mine. 🙂
