Piddled around and was late heading out.

GPS mount was loose and re-banded that.

Front road tire was flat, so I swapped wheels.

The knobbies were not as inflated as I thought, and the effort required to stay rolling was much higher than I expected. Verified brakes were not rubbing. The tire issue sucked up around 42 watts worth of average effective power, or about 28%.

My right knee was hurting, but got a little better as I rode. My ligaments and tendons keep changing what hurts in that knee as it gets stronger, but overall, the average pain is less than before I started riding. Also, the flare-ups are less than what my old average was. So, I endure, but it was unexpected since I'd been pain free for several days.

Also, my current rims and brakes make SO MUCH NOISE. I tried using brake cleaner, try rag, and even putting dust, dirt, or finger oil and nothing makes them quiet. Grip is okay so I guess it's like a horn, honking any time I have to stop.

Explored Flower Mound and Lewisville trails a bit, but came back after a short ride due to the SLOW. My floor pump should show up today so I don't have to pull the noisy one out of the car. Also, I had work stuff come up that cemented my need to cut the ride short.

It will probably be too warm to ride again later today. Heat Index of 110 planned.
