rock to rock earth day ride, new haven

25 miles
a 20-mile route from West Rock to East Rock
and then a 5-mile return trip through town

waited a half hour for the rain to lighten up
watching radar on the phone in the car –
but radar doesn’t reveal a lingering mist

cold and wet discomfort overrode
my usual cycling discomforts
and this was pleasant

beautiful early spring – flowering trees
buds on display
water everywhere, misting lawns silver

food vendors at the finish
had Ethiopian injera with lentils,
split peas, spinach and potato – excellent
