Finally, I managed to get on my bike and do a little shake down cruise from home, before I drive it elsewhere. Good thing I did because my computer wasn’t working.
Most of my rides will have to be on Tuesdays or Thursdays, because those are the days my husband attends an Adult Day Center. I use most of that time getting things done around here. The windows are washed. The deck, drive and walk are power washed and the deck floor was given another coat of stain. All the shrub beds have been prettied up and more mulch added. So, most of Jim’s first five days at the ADC, I was super busy. Today, before I got on my bike, I weeded my small garden and planted flowers and green beans. Anyway, I’m ready to take some time for myself and ride my bike.
I thought the problem with the bike computer was the battery, so I rode to a nearby drugstore and bought one. Back home, I saw the computer problem was more serious than just needing power. It appeared quite ill with many 8’s showing on the screen and I think terminal because none of the buttons, even in combination, would not change a thing. So, on our 54th wedding anniversary tomorrow, I will be getting a new bicycle computer, I hope.
To get my mileage (a whole 3.4 miles), I used google maps. I do not remember how to add a picture, but even if I did, I’d only had a picture of the bike computer and its strange display. I have another ride planned and it will take me into uncharted territories. Well, at least some roads that will be new to Violette. Will have to see if the rain holds out on Thursday.
