30 Mile Canal Ride

January 13th, 2008

Things have been busy here, mostly with work, so I haven’t been riding as much as I need to for Vietnam. I did go for a 30-mile ride on the Arizona Canal with Dan yesterday. The great thing about this route is that 90% of the street crossing have underpasses, so you can ride uninterrupted for a good 10 miles at a time. The only downside is that the route is out-and-back, which isn’t quite as stimulating.

We stopped for some Pita Jungle on the way back (which is one reason total time and moving time are so different).
