Half Breakfast Commute – 2022.11.18

Starts are getting cooler and cooler. Just cool enough to need a full jacket for the descent out of Anthem, but not cool enough for full thermal bibs. I want to test out a new vest, but I’m afraid of it not being warm enough.

Ride down to Scrambled was easy and cool like usual. Decided to mix up my route to work a little. Sadly there aren’t many north/south options between Scrambled and UNLV. Normally I would take Pecos north, but it is under heavy construction north of Pebble. Last time I went through there I took the lane, which helped, but the surface is just awful. I decided to jump over to Green Valley Pkwy(GVP) and it worked out well.

Coming up to GVP along Paseo Verde I started looking left to make my way over to the left turn lane. I looked two or three times and this gentlemen in a black sedan slowed up and waved me over. Super kind gesture. Once stopped at the light I looked over and got his attention. He rolled down his window and I thanked him for his kindness and wished him a Happy Thanksgiving. Love it when drivers are attentive and courteous like that. It certainly made my day!

Now for a chill Friday at work. Only a half commute today because there is a UNLV basketball game tonight. Fitted the bike rack to the kiddo’s car before I left this morning. After the game we’ll load up the bike and drive home. Looking forward to the weekend!
