He's Back

Yes, I rode to work today.

And ...

The Chieftain is back. He pulled up shortly after me. He rode yesterday, too. He told me he'd gone thirty-five days without riding. He said it was the longest he'd gone without riding in years.

I did ride last Thursday, but was off Friday and yesterday. The occasion was a Kodo concert at the University of Illinois. While she was at the concert I spent the evening catching up with a friend I'd not seen in a long long time. She took me to a small Japanese garden. I'm not sure if it was part of the University or simply near it.

It was very nice.

Today was a lovely day for riding. Rain in the forecast for the rest of the week. We'll see.

  • 51F/10.5C and overcast for the ride to work.
  • 55F/13C and a few clouds for the home ride.


  1. U of I at CU? That's my stomping grounds! Where I grew up! If this is where you were, did you go to the Japan House? If so, that would be where the gardens are. It's part of the U and right near the vet school complex. Huge complex.

    I can see the effects of the visit in your last photo.

    1. It was the first time I'd been back to the campus since my daughter finished up there and moved on, It was a good trip.

  2. Hooray for you riding and the Chieftan's return.
