Before I talk about this morning's ride I want to wish my eldest grandson Jacob a Happy Birthday!!! Today he turns 11.
Only 3 things to mention about this morning's ride - some wind,a rabbit and some creaking.
This morning there was a southwest wind blowing 12 to 15 mph which meant I was cycling into the wind on the slower parts of my route. It was definitely a bit more work.
On my 4th lap as I was heading north on Quarterhorse, a rabbit almost committed suicide by running across in front of me. He timed it poorly, though and successfully made it across with a couple of feet to spare. I guess he misjudged how fast I was in fact riding.
At about the 9 mile mark this morning, I started to notice a creaking coming from the left pedal and/or bottom bracket area. It seemed to only do it when I was pushing the left pedal so I need to look at it this evening. To avoid possibly damaging anything I took it really easy on the last mile this morning.

A side note, as of yesterday both my mom and dad were still in the challenge having walked and ridden everyday so far in August respectively. I believe my dad was even slightly ahead mileage-wise for the month. I am so proud of them!!!!
Keep those pedals turning.
