Just a meander

Today was a meandering ride around Baltimore.  Kathleen was doing the Rapha Women's 100K today, so I was left to my own devices.   I opted to ride up the Gwynns Falls Trail and around to the Hillsdale neighborhood.  I have always liked this area, it surrounds the municipal golf course there.   The houses are groovy post war type.  Baltimore has lots of different neighborhoods, you would think that they were mostly rowhouses, but in fact there are houses of all types depending on where you go.

Then it was back to the house to clean up.

Hot day in July

It was hot today, Africa hot, Tarzan couldn't take this kind of heat.   About 90 degrees and 1billion percent humidity.   But out I went for a ride anyhow, because I am dumb like that.   My original intent was to ride out to BWI and do the loop around the airport, but with the heat that plan got axed about 10 miles in.   But anyhow, riding through the Inner Harbor I stopped to see what was happening at the fountain, and as I expected lots of kids playing in it and cooling off.

Then it was time to head out towards BWI, but as I mentioned it was hot as hell, so I ended up doing a big loop through Brooklyn and back to the house.   As I rode back towards home on Hanover street I got this shot of the harbor at work.  Busy day, cruise ship in at the dock.

Then it was back to the house to clean up and get on with the day.
