Epic Ride

Legendary Epic Ride! Of the No-Foot-Down variety: didn't have to stop once. Not for any traffic, not at any intersection. Gnarly. That was the first time I've been able to do that. Eight miles of straight trucking.
It's easiest to do that Saturday mornings because

  1. nobody's on the roads, and

  2. on my eastbound (morning) path, I don't have to cross Downing, making Federal and Colorado the only major intersections I have to contend with.

It was a close call at Colorado because that light is so awful. I had to ride up to the crosswalk button, mash it in passing, and then do loops in the 7-11 parking lot till I saw the light start to change. Then I was like, "NOW! GO! GO! GO!" (you know, to myself) and I made it.
