    I did a 56-mile hilly bike ride yesterday with other people, but admittedly drove my Prius 14.5 miles one-way to meet them. It wasn't as fast as your rides.

    One big milestone from the many details in the Coronavirus Deaths thread is World ccp coronavirus cases have surpassed 30 percent of 100 million cases. This event has occurred only 20 days after cases swept past 25 million cases. World deaths are approaching 1 million.
    Three countries alone, the US, India & Brazil account for nearly 16.5 million cases.
    All these numbers are under-counted.

    Good to hear that other featherfooters have “sins to be confessed” & must travel to triple digit territory on occasions. From the confessional, your “sins” are forgiven, my son. :eek::p

    Today , 59 deg F in Elk Grove Village.
    Civic today , 16.2 miles, fcd = 52.8 MPG.
    I'm taking this car to Madison WI tomorrow.
    About 300 miles round trip. Yeah , it drinks gas
    on the highway , but one of the main reasons to buy this
    car was to put fewer miles on the Prius. This car is
    capable. Not extremely fuel-efficient , but satisfying to drive.
