Back on the bicycle.

Cross-posted from daily_exercise

In honor of Freddie Mercury's birthday yesterday: I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike. I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride it where I like.

(Except in my case, I don't really WANT to ride it.)

First real exercise of any kind since the 1/2 Marathon.

Riding time: 1 hour 16 minutes.
Distance: 9.67 miles
Total riding time on the stopwatch: 1 hour 27 minutes 33 seconds.

I threw in some extra loops, mostly to avoid traffic lights and to get in some extra mileage. I also tried to scout a better way back to the office from the Embarcadero and made a very unfortunate turn which led to me riding through a good chunk of the Financial District going the wrong way on a one way street. That was amusing.
