It wasn't quick, though it didn't last very long. You could count on one hand the rides I've taken this season on a weekday. Most of my rides are done on a weekend day or entire weekend. Yesterday I was home from work early, the sun was out, compelling me to put the Darien Light on and see a bit of gravel.
Taking the long way to Lake City for gas, I made a loop on roads that of course I've been on before, but not often nor recently. Even with our dry weather, plant life that is supposed to be green at this time of year was green, always a nice contrast with the shades of yellow-brown and darker in the woods and in farmer's fields.
A thirty mile ride, far beyond satisfactory and I don't say that very often for ~45 minutes of riding.
