4 laps around White Rock Lake this evening, it looks like I'll be there all week judging by the possible rain reports
 
Passed some guy on a bent about halfway through, he looked sorta familiar Smiley

Yeah, he stayed out a little later and got a little worried about the wind that came in from the south.

Got in 10 miles around Rowlett last night on the tandem, cutting the ride short when the winds kicked up and it looked like we were gonna get soaked...   false alarm, but we got some good crosswind training!!!

I took off on the Corsa this morning, rode to the start, and did the Rusty Chain Gang Ramble club ride. Another recumbent rider joined us, Ron, on a Corsa he just bought. It looked like an old steel Corsa to me. I gave him the forum info, so hopefully, he'll join us. I ended up with 44.8 miles.

Got in 52 miles on the Clown ride today. Two and a half lake laps in the morning, up the WR Trail and back, and another lake lap with Key L, after lunch at Sunset Bay. Have ridden 102 miles in two days and mowed and trimmed the lawn at my house - was running on fumes near the end of my last lake lap. Think I'll rest tomorrow. See you Clowns on Thursday.  Smiley

3 fast 21.4 mph laps around White Rock Lake tonight, had to abort the 4th lap due to rain. Still a lot of fun!

Saw the big threat of rain, so didn't plan to ride with the Clowns from their start, but clearing skies later encouraged me.  Wanted to ride for endurance today, so kept the motor around 75%, just fast enough for the 700 to sing the "Catrike Song".  
On my 3rd lap, I saw some of the Clowns eating lunch after the trip up the trail, then went for one more lap with Jay.  A great 40-something mile ride.

No rain in my neighborhood, a mile or so from the Lake. How about bringing your rain-making ability to the Lakewood area. Our lawns are dry.  Smiley

Got in a little over 10 on the trike yesterday.  Used the trike instead of the car for my after work running around.  Went to Walmart for a few groceries, than after dropping those off at the house over to Subway for a Turkey on Wheat and finally stopped for a sugar free snow cone before finishing up.
 
Met a DF at a stop sign, who was headed another direction.  Exchanged pleasantries then moved on.  A minute later he was beside me asking lots of questions about the trike.  The trike seems to get a lot more attention than my other recumbents ever have.

Alexis and I got in 38 miles today.  She managed the Aledo/Iona climb very well and only flagged a little towards the end when the sun came out and she flatted.  
 
This was the route:
