I feel like this blog is about a week behind. Must be some kind of blockage in the system. I've been riding a lot, writing not so much. I haven't even been reading much, preferring sudoku to fiction as of late. Some highlights:

- Wednesday took the long way home over into St Paul and all the way down the River Road/Shepard Road trail to 35E, and then the Big River Regional Trail home from there. A nice change of pace.
- Did the airport loop with the Boys of Hiawatha on Saturday. I ballparked it as 13 miles, but I'm totally guessing as I have no idea where I was most of the time. Plus the 10 mile to the shop and back.
- Got soaked on the way home Monday evening. It was a lovely warm rain, I could have ridden all day in it. But a hot shower felt good too.

Now you're up to date. May is Bike to Work month, and I'm going to try and bike every single day of May. Does the fact that I missed May 1 make this a completely futile gesture? Who cares.

So...as of the first day of bike to work month you rode 0% of it? Poser.

I have been measured and found wanting.

If you want to try out something new in sudoku, try shendoku, using the sudoku rules but playing two people, one against the other, like battleshipps. They have a free version to download at http://www.shendoku.com/sample.pdf . Anything else they are bringing out or they are working on you can find at www.shendoku.com or at they´r blog www.shendoku.blogspot.com . Have fun, I am. I specially like one slogan I heard about Shendoku: SUDOKU is like masturbation (one person)…. SHENDOKU is like sex (it takes two).
