A couple weeks ago I rode out to Nantasket Beach to meet the family. Since it’s only 18 miles, I thought I’d add on a few miles to turn it into something a bit more respectable in terms of a training ride. I rode out and hooked up with the H2B route in around Quincy. I had put in Nantasket as my destination in Google Maps, but didn’t turn it on.
I’ve got a bluetooth enabled speaker on my bike so I can listen to music and hear audible cues from Google Maps. This works great. Unless you’ve muted maps. Which is what I accidentally did.
Anyway, I thought it had been far too long without a turn, so I looked at the phone and saw my mistake. Oops! I was a bit late meeting my family, but as you can see from the photo, I was perfectly happy at the finish anyway. And that root beer float tasted even better after the extra mileage (ended up around 45 miles instead of 30 for the day).
