Dad of the year award goes to Holiday76. Your creating life long, good memories for your son. I commend you sir.

well you know, often the only way to get out for a ride is to take one of my kids, not that i mind in the least :)

though i suppose all those years of cross country bike touring with my father has instilled in me the idea to have some of the same experiences with my son.

Spring is here! mid 60's today in RI.

My rear tire opened up like a zipper on the way home. Booted it with a dollar bill and made it 4 miles before it went flat again. Had to limp home 2 miles on a flat. Schwalbe stelvio lasted 1900.

After we'd seen the weather forecast for today, both mrs NF and I managed to get a day off from work and enjoy the first real spring day. We loaded the bikes onto the car for a ride in the Land of Altena:

We took a route set out by the Algemene Nederlandse Wielrijders Bond:

And the weather was even nicer than had been predicted:

Shortly after this picture was taken I was chased by swans, don't mess w/ swans.

This was taken just before a very fast downhill section followed but a mile or so of dirt and gravel. It all added up to be a fantastic day out!

Woke up to this so it might end up being an indoor trainer today - that or slogging through the slush on the converted mtb.

On the ride to work this morning:

Morning sunlight on bicycles in my office when I arrived:

Following up on scozim's post of the storm in reached PHX yesterday, resulting in wicked thunderstorms and hail at one point. It also left the mountains to the East covered in the white stuff. Yes, in March, in PHX! Took a ride (in my car) along the Apache Trail to do a bit of storm chasing and capture the scenery. Some photos of Superstition and Four Peaks mountain ranges dusted white and storm still ongoing.

Went on a nice jaunt with the "missus" through the old industrial part of town, and out to the zoo:

WOW WNG... Those are beautiful pics. I hope I'll be able to see those landscapes for myself if I ever get to that pan-american bike tour :P

Minutes before getting hammered by hailstorm:

Great pictures everyone! Here is one I took this weekend on a 49 mile ride.

I was a little worried the famer might think I was casing the herd considering local events!

Glad it's out there and not here!
It was 80 here yesterday; rode in shorts yesterday and today.
Usually March is 35/35: thirty-five degrees and thirty-five mile an hour winds.

same here, Land of Lincoln usually still land of ice and snow until late March. Happy for every good riding day I can get.

Me and a couple of co-workers went on a little 26 miler Sunday. Great time with a couple of great pals.

My buddies '87 Trek 1000, my recently acquired '06 Specialized Allez, and our friend Big Johns '77 Miyata.

Sambas by Adidas . They do fit well though the soles can be kinda flimsy.

Yep, sambas. Compared to cycling shoes, they are flimsy, but they're the 'stiffest' sneaker I own. Compared to my all stars and vans, relatively speaking.
