Bicycle Diaries

30 years riding, 15 years writing

Dodging heavy equipment

Looks like the City of Charlotte is in fast pace mode to get the McAlpine done by August 1.

This morning it was not an easy ride, so I only did one loop around the McAlpine. There was quite a lot of activity on the main trail, I was dodging heavy machinery, it was a hair raising dust breathing ride.

It’s been hard to get out lately, the temperatures have been so hot, that early mornings are the only time to ride. But that’s when the city is out there with their toys.

Also, I’m spending quite a lot time on my computers lately, the wee hours creep up unnoticed, it’s 3 or 4am before I make it to bed.

distance 8.72 miles, average speed 12.2 mph.
