Week of 08/30/09 - Post Vacation Blues

Drove home to Maryland from my sister's house with Leah on Monday.  Traffic was pretty good, with only a few delays in NJ.  We stopped at the Town & Country Diner in Bordentown, NJ.  A classic diner ... Karen and I stopped there back in 1997 on the way back from getting her engagement ring in New York City.  Great food for the money and huge portions. Photo courtesy of Angel Rodriguez, Trenton, NJ.
The rest of the week was pretty much spent catching up from two weeks of vacation.  That meant a lot of work and almost no time for riding.  The break from the bike was actually positive.  I ended the week with a strong 45 mile ride to Glenwood in western Howard County.  Glenwood is home to a large number of higher end homes with 3-5 acre lots.  Lots of riding options with minimal traffic.  The area has a new community center , library, and park. Back to 140-150 mile goal next week.
