july 3--uh-oh flowers

My first bike ride today was riding house-mate's bike to check the mileage of my jogging routes, since she has a bike computer. I was disappointed to find out they are shorter than I thought and I am therefore a really slow runner. When I was running with Gail, her GPS said we had a faster pace than I was expecting, so maybe the bike computer is wrong. I need to borrow a GPS.

The next bike ride was to church for another work day. The remodeling project is starting to seem endless. It was a nice day with very little auto traffic. I love holidays for that reason. Temperature was 70 degrees F, winds 5 mph from the north at 10 am. Here's the start of the bike path:

Cafe Zoma, a favorite spot for bikers:

Even my church has flowers growing out of the concrete:

On the way home, I spotted more:
