Longer Lunch Ride

I’ve been riding my new bike during lunch this week. Each ride has gotten a little longer. This ride would be the longest yet.

It looks like fun. Now I just need a day where I can take a long lunch…

Intel Hawthorn Farm Walking Routes

I’m moving Intel campuses1 later this week — from Jones Farm to Hawthorn Farm. The Jones Farm campus is great for walking. It’s time for a quick visit to Google maps to see what Hawthorn Farm has to offer. I see what might be nice 1.2 and 1.5 mile walks.2 :-)

I wonder what walking is available indoors at Hawthorn Farm other than the treadmills in the exercise center.


  1. “Campi”? Nope, that would be sometimes frowned upon. :-( 
  2. Okay, the southern leg of the 1.2 mile route doesn’t look quite as nice. At least, not from the satellite.

Orphanage in the Dominican Republic


View Larger Map

Google Maps now has high resolution satellite views of central Dominican Republic. The blue placemark indicates where Ashley stayed last school year while teaching English at an orphanage. Go to satellite mode and zoom in to see the group house she live in with her adopted family.

The houses just south of the orphanage washed away in the middle of the night from floods that accompanied tropical storm Noel.

Tour de Intel Oregon Site

I wanted to do a longer bike ride today (I failed last week) so I mapped this one out before I left. According to Google, this ride is a hair over 26 miles.

This ride took me by Intel’s Oregon campuses. Intel’s Oregon site is its largest because it includes all of these campuses.

The bike ride was wonderful! Under 70°F, no wind, and clouds blocking direct sun. A perfect day to ride.

“Longer” Bike Ride

I figured I’d go for a longer bike ride today. I had some extra time and energy.

According to my bike computer, I went 16.7 miles, only 0.3 miles longer than my typical ride. Oops!

Come Ride With Me

I rode my bike this evening for a little exercise. Come along for the ride.

It’s probably easier to view a larger map and click through the symbols in order.

Making this map reminded me of memory maps.
