Bit rough this morning. Got behind on time, which is never good because his pace is so variable and potentially slow, then two bike changes, much whining about attire, etc. we squeaked in with two minutes to spare. May need to dredge up the winter gear as he was not thrilled with the selections we did at today's temps.
Semi taper, went with a short ride full of shenanigans:
*Wheelies *Unmarked trail exploration *Steep grassy slopes at the limit of my 30/42 and leg strength and tire grip, probably should do reps one day on some of these *Found a micro skatepark?! near the train bridge
Biking19:12  1.51 mi (4.7 mph) weight:226.8lbs shoes: 2015 Camber
Got 40% of the way there and my teammate announced he had significant and severe bathroom needs. This was a no man's land (unless the dentist was open?) so I encouraged him to press on steadily. I let him ride the last two street crossings for speed, and as far as I know, crisis averted.
Biking1:07:56 14.21 mi (12.6 mph) +65m ahr:121 max:146 shoes: Long Haul Trucker
Rode over to Sweet Bikes in Canton, which is literally on the main I-275 route, so 7 miles the long way or I think just 5.5 the shorter way. I need a new chain; they advised also a new cassette so that's on order.
Ran into a guy I've worked with before who always has bike projects.
w/ my homey Eric, will probably try to keep Wed rides going until salt time.

Much thirst and general protest along the way. I wish four year olds still had compulsory naps
Harvey rode his new Riprock, which went well until I think he tried to stand and slipped off a pedal and took a good crash. Thankfully he was wearing his chin bar. Some nice people were entering their house and overheard his bandaid request and ran in and grabbed one, although he was thankfully just scuffed a little. Poor buddy.
On a happier note, if you are allowed to turn your wheel quite sideways, track stand duration is way up. And I did a monster wheelie down the sidewalk after drop off.
Some road, gravel, single track, pump track, skill course, more single track, accidentally hiking trails but in my defense it's not well marked also it was fun, more single track, more gravel, more road, and beat the train, can't ask for a better time!
If I really hammered, I could see about adding the extra bit to Ann Arbor Trail perhaps for midweek lunch rides. It's not hugely off the end of the other stuff...
