Yesterday, I met my friend Linda at the Centerville School in Beverly, and we went for a "Super Bowl Sunday bike ride". Because the Game was on late, Essex County wasn't as creepily deserted as when the Patriots play in the afternoon. On those Sundays, there's absolutely no traffic, and it seems like we're the only ones outside. It was a nice ride for the first 20 miles, then it started raining heavily. We made our way back from North Andover, taking a more direct route through Boxford, Danvers, and Topsfield, but still managed to do 37 miles total. Not bad for February, and the third bike ride of the year.
