The only bike related things I did today were taking my bike in to Landis Cyclery for some adjustments to the derailleur; cleaning and doing maintenance on my bike; dropping by REI to get strap and buckle materials to replace the missing carry strap on my panniers; restocking supplements and hygiene items; and removing gear that I don’t need.
The rest of the day was spent with my grandkids and dealing with the restoration contractors and my insurance company on the water damage to my house.
A few people have asked me if I’m going to continue on with the ride, and the answer is—definitely yes! Fixing this place can wait till after I get home from the tour. The priority right now is drying the place out so it doesn’t get mold.
Thursday, I’ll be riding again, but today, home is where the action was (big yawn).
