At White Rock from an upright rider I pulled from Sunset Bay all the way to  the Ride of Silence park
 
"Some riders don't think you are human, this is the first time I've seen you take a drink"
 
Nice guy, he then thanked me for the pull, I thanked him back for the push, see some uprights can be nice and "get" what I do

Not a high energy day for me - average heart rate for 47 miles was 78 bpm. Spent yesterday in the skunk works (my garage) machining a second test idler for my Performer low racer, then didn't sleep well.  
 
Kenny J drug me around the lake on my initial lap, then Jim A drug me around on my second lap. After a break, Meta Ken, Mark McD and I rode up the White Rock Creek Trail. Ken departed the scene (Anderson Bonner parking lot) in his car and Mark and I proceeded to the end of the trail, then headed back to WRL's Sunset Bay. We made a stop at the Tennis Center for Popsicles and cold water, then called it a day when we arrived back at Sunset Bay.
 
The idler I machined from melted milk jugs (HDPE 2) progressively got louder, as I racked up the miles on the Performer. When I examined it, after riding, found that the chain was chewing it up, like it did the first idler design I tried. Not giving up - will try a different design I've been thinking about.

CLOWN RIDE
Did first lap with Larry, before breakfast at Barbec's. Kind of wish I'd skipped Barbec's and kept riding as I felt great before breakfast but lacked energy after breafast. Despite Bob thinking I was making it look easy, I really had to force myself to push as I felt no motivation. There was a pretty good south breeze interfering at times with enjoying the ride. Yet, during lap breaks, there was practically no breeze, exacerbating the heat and humidity, even in the shade. Plan was to do 5 laps. Did so, but really struggled with the motivation. Riding the Bacchetta is certainly easier than riding the trike but the enjoyment wasn't there today. the main reason for riding the Bacchetta is that I was sure I had a ding in one of the wheels. But no ding was revealed; guess it was my imagination there was anything wrong with the wheels.
BIKE: Bacchetta CA2 recumbent; start time: 7:12; end: 13:09; avg:17.5; max: 26.2; climb: 814; miles: 54.36
PARTLY CLOUDY; wind: S 9 - 15; start  temp: 73; min: 72; avg: 85; max: 97; end: 95

Five at breakfast this morning.  The waitresses said some nonsense about broken pipes getting fixed.  Yeah, sure, heard that one before!  Bob W. and Mark were off somewhere around the lake, Larry was riding with a neighbor, and Diane was there with a bike for Jay to fix.  It was slightly cooler, but just as humid, and Daniel dragged me around four laps at near record speed, for 42 miles.  Nothing wrong with his bike, by the way.

Well I decided indoor sicklin' just wasn't much fun so got the X out and down to the pond I go. Pretty quiet till Mark passes yelling some nonsense 'bout me being slow or hoggin' the road. Like I said pretty quiet, got in 30.
