I took a rather non-descript fitness ride around the township. I’m slowly trying to increase my mileage without over-doing it. Last night I could feel stiffness in my legs, but no real pain to speak of.
I even took along a camera, but nothing really caught my eye. I did have one guy blow by me on an MTB. He was wearing a backpack and lycra; I’m thinking since he looked very fit that he is a commuter. Good for him!
When I got home I spent a few minutes dialing in my front derailleur. During the last two rides I had dropped the chain on shifts to both the granny and the big gear. I’m hoping its just a routine maintenance thing since the bike has been sitting, but if need be I’ll upgrade.
I did a little research on lighting again, and now I’m looking at a Busch and Muller Ixon IQ. Its a battery light that can be upgraded to run/charge off of a dynamo. I have to figure if “40 lux” is adequate for what I need. One of the things I really like about it is that its all self contained, and the charger plugs directly into the light.
