I can ride! I can ride! And now, a little later in the day, AQ is 9 ??♀️??
Being late in the year, having just recently rediscovered the challenge, and having been off my bike for over a week with poor AQ due to wildfire smoke, I have set my goal at 15 rides for this year. I plan to finish out a month and then post the rides I did for that month. This is my first try at it, so I am posting this single photo which breaks my own rule, but ensures that I am participating in the challenge.
1/15 SEPTEMBER 19, 2020
I ride this same route a lot, but there will be lots of different things to take a photo of each time I ride it. Today is my first ride in seven days. That for someone who rides almost every day of the week! Our wildfire smoke finally lifted and this was the first day the AQ is healthy for outdoor activity.
I rode to Cindy’s house as we had some “goods” to exchange: jigsaw puzzles, baked bread, chocolate covered almonds, and steak & peppers dinner!!!! I started my ride from home in a mist that cleared up within about 10 minutes. After some chatting time with Cindy on her front porch, being sure to maintain our distance, I started home in mist. This mist never did stop, and in fact became light rain that stayed with me the whole way home. I had brought a rain jacket with me ‘just in case’ but I didn’t mind the rain as it was not cold, and ….. I was on my bike!! I don’t need no stinkin’ rain jacket ??. Welcome rain to clear out even more from our air.
“Flying High Espresso” with the giant tea cup (maybe that’s a coffee cup) on its roof has always intrigued me. This was a good time to get a photo as no one was in the drive-through or in the parking lot, I had no time constraint so could make a photo stop, and the rain had abated for a moment. The kiosk is located just at the outskirts of the Paine Field Airport, thus the name and logo on the cup.
We are due for a couple of sunny days coming up, and I will be on my bike, collecting more photos to add ;’-).?♀️?♀️
