1. Do you have a jacket? Patch kit? Water?

How far are you going? Is your phone charged? Did you stretch? Did you tuck in your shoe laces? Is your chain well-lubed?

On edit: Are you back yet? It's been an hour, when are you coming back? Did you see any bears?

3. Thanks!

I have everything, even a Garmin Nuvii on my handlebars.

10.16 miles. Yes, fully. Yes, I don't want leg cramps or other issues. Ah, I learned that lesson before, no laces, straps and Velcro shoes, bands around the pant legs. Yes.



Yes, I got back about half an hour ago. I actually didn't get out of the driveway until 4:30. No bears in Detroit, they live "up North" in Michigan. We do have these weak, scruffy, pathetic cats known as Lions. Lions just can't win.

4. Hi, Elleng!

Around the lake, with stops at the library and Hiller's Market to pick up dinner, a dragon roll, one of my favorites. I love unagi.

6. Always.

I obey the rules. More than I can say for most of the automobile drivers in Detroit.

Hey, that's a good site, I bookmarked it.
