Cycling 1:41:30 [3] 22.0 mi (4:37 / mi)

Bike to work. Considerably faster today, which I'm sure is just getting used to riding again. I haven't done any significant bike riding for about 30 years. Split times: 46:00 to jct of Sligo Cr. and Northwest Branch; 56:00 to Rode Island Ave.; 1:16:00 to Greenbelt Road; 1:33:00 to Goddard entrance gate.

I did a fair amount of work on the bike in the last couple weeks. New tires and tubes, replaced the entire crankset (I had a spare matching vintage crankset, which I had tapped out for 9/16" pedals, 50 years old like the bike). New pedals, platform MTB-style without toeclips. It's running well, and it's fun to be riding it again. Oh, and new helmet and pump.

It's really fine to be able to ride 15 miles on paved trails without getting on a road. And the last 5 miles has well-marked bike lanes. Really enjoyable.
