riding hard

I was out for the 2nd time this year on my bike. I planned on taking it nice and easy. But as I picked up speed coming through the round-about close to our house, and then went through the slight curve just ahead, I spotted someone on a bike about 150m ahead. Google hasn't updated the photography in this year in the last year - the roundabout is at the intersection of Beaver Creek & Laurelcreek.

And so the push was on. I caught him. And of course I had to keep pushing hard to make sure I stayed well ahead of him. So much for the easy ride. But it felt pretty good.

I had my second physical check up in 5 years. The doc gave me a clean bill of health. I've now gone from 10 years between appointments to 5 years.
