 Main St Mess, Bill, SRC
I left home on the Surly to get some miles before riding with Bill. I went out Main Street, but it was torn up and I got caught in a traffic mess. Then I knew that I wouldn't be able to make what I was planning, so I tried to cut from Main Street to Summit. But I discovered that the streets don't go straight across and tend to wander all over the place.

I finally made it to Bill's place and we rode 5 to 6 miles. My Strava kept stopping. It dropped close to half a mile and 20 minutes of riding time. It kept stopping as we were riding very slow, but I don't know why. Bill and I covered his neighborhood fairly well. This trike handles a lot differently than his other trike and he is adjusting to the differences.

After I left Bill's, I rode to the Swamp Rabbit Café for lunch. I had a Bacon, Tomato, Avacado Salad with a cup of Winter Squash Bisque. While eating at the café I met Jeff and Mike. They seem like nice guys. I rode back to Cleveland Park, but I also rode the newly opened Orange Line twice.
