Afterwork ride on the bike path between Franklin and Miamisburg. I started south of Franklin and went a little past Miamisburg plus the return trip. Turned around at a touch over 15km. Cannondale road bike. Wheels were noisy. Definitely need to retrue the wheels. The spokes might be on their last legs.

30km is 18.6miles. I was trying to ride at a comfortable HR and not push it too much. I was a little worn out at the end. I need to either move the saddle forward or find a shorter stem.

First time using my new GPS. It's an Oregon 600, which is a trail model with ANT+ and fitness functions. I need to download the free routable maps from OSM data. The preloaded map basically sucks. I actually purchased (and returned) an eTrex 20 and eTrex 30 before deciding to drop the big bucks on this one. And I went to REI and looked at an Edge 810 (?) for about thirty minutes before deciding to keep this one. It's got a better display than the 810, and it's touchscreen, which is way better than the eTrex models. It also seems reasonably fast, which is a personal pet peeve of mine regarding some older map-capable GPSs. My car's TomTom drives me crazy with the delayed response to inputs, but it keeps working.

Anyway, it seems to work. One thing---It's not awesome for multiple part workouts, like intervals. It's mostly for longer rides. It records a track whenever it is on, so you don't have to remember to press start and stop. But, I haven't figured out the way to download the tracks easily. My first attempt required trimming the gpx file from three earlier turn-ons in various locations. I think there is an automatic save feature that saves each day as a separate GPX file. I need to turn that on.

This is part of my "ride to work" route. This added 15km to the route I've traveled south from work. (I've ridden, at different times, the entire path from work to Franklin.) From Franklin south, it's all roads. Unless I wimp out and decide to take the Little Miami Bike Path, which adds about 14 miles (62 versus 48, I think).

In my 25-something years of working in Dayton, today was the first time I saw the former Mound DOE site. I've been through Miamisburg countless times, but never on the south side in the daylight. Go figure.

I saw a low-head dam upstream of a weird gate structure. Not sure what that was. Will check it out. {Power Station water exit. The water intake is on the high side of the dam.}
