I'm planning a longer ride tomorrow, so I just went out for a short one this afternoon up Indian Creek Hill (Alpe du Kerber) to the Ravines Golf Course and back.

No Where to Hide from the Wind

The west wind was pretty strong, and I found that while riding on the floodplain on River Road, there was no protection from it. However, the tail wind coming back was nice.

Coming back, I had to get around the bridge construction on Division Road, so I headed up to a second golf course - the Par View.

I Love the Quote Usage

On my last road ride, my cyclocomputer wasn't registering the cadance. Today, I didn't get get any distance or average speed numbers. I think it's time for a new battery. I used Gmaps Pedometer to estimate the mileage.

Miles Ridden: 16.4

I'm interested to know how long your battery lasted. Based on your blog image, it looks like we have the same bike computer (CatEye Astrale 8). I've had mine almost two years and a little over 4200 miles.

I don't think it was the battery after all. When I changed the battery, I also cleaned the contacts - which would better explain why the speed was measured but not the cadence.

You're right. Battery death would have probably disabled everything.

Well, I guess I can tell you that you can probably expect at least two good years of use out of the battery. I'm carrying a spare in my fanny pack now that you've brought this to my attention.
