From Northfield Rd. to Maple Ave. with Max in his trailer, then to C St., SW, Washington, D.C. via the Capital Crescent Trail and Ohio Dr. I had a hard time getting to sleep last night and woke-up tired. Having seen the weather forecast, the best in over a week, I had already planned to ride all the way in to work. I was 9:48 getting to Maple Ave. which is one of the fastest times to there that I can remember. It was pleasantly cool though I still managed to sweat some. I was doing 21-22mph down the grade and 19-20mph on the flats. I got passed just before getting into Georgetown but that guy slowed down there and I passed him back. I ran into a few areas with traffic slow downs. Overall I was faster than the my last rides all the way in to work which were in mid-August.

From C St . SW, Washington, D.C. to Maple Ave., then to Northfield Rd., Bethesda, MD. I rushed out of my office just before my bike got locked in the courtyard and that got me going pretty good from the beginning. The conditions were oddly average--not much wind, humidity or heat. There were lots of other cyclists and runners out and this created some traffic starting out and near the end. Somewhere after Georgetown I picked-up a drafter and pulled him until just after the Air Rights Building tunnel in Bethesda. I guess he kept me a bit more interested in pushing harder than I should have. I also didn't know how fast I was going. In my rush to leave the office I'd left my cycling computer there so I timed using my wrist watch and used the distance from many earlier rides. I got to Maple Ave. in just under 38 minutes and home with the trailer in under 10 minutes from there.
