Thanks qtlibrarian for the link to map my ride. I found a link in to the Road to Nepal, giving elevation and everything. I didn't quite take that route on the weekend, so I don't know what the pavement is like on the return stretch.
I did a quicky 5 K ride around the neighbourhood to figure out where the kilometre-stones are, so I can press the lap button at the right time. What a beautiful afternoon. Pity I was in the office.
And Julie, you're making us all drool with this talk of not having to share a lane. Sigh.
My tri wish list:
my own 25 m indoor pool.
I'll settle for a lane to myself to swim in.
New tire and tire changing tools and other necessary spares.
watt meter (it just sounds sooo frickin pro to say I trained at 250 watt pace for an hour last night.)
wetsuit that fits right, being big and tall, but slowly getting smaller
find the sunscreen that comes in stick form
to be worthy of getting an Orbea Ordu tri-bike (http://www.trigearreview.com/images/art/Ordu_big_black.jpg)
to survive the road to Nepal in its several variations
