Well, the wind was blowing in the opposite direction today, much to my chagrin, reaffirming the rule that one should always check the weather details before a bike ride.
So, I did a little backtracking and tallied 7.43 miles this morning, completing a full week of riding on consecutive days. Just 32 (gulp!) more to go!
Our 4.1 mile picture today is a close-up of a cruise ship heading toward its dock in Manhattan:
I knew I would get a shot of this at the 4.1 mile mark, after catching a little bit of a more breathtaking view a mile or so earlier, just as the ship was passing under the Verrazano Bridge and the sunrise was reflecting in its windows:
Incidentally, it was right at the 4.1 mile mark that I turned around and took advantage of the tailwind.
