    Who took a good Friday pedal today???

    Here's mine.. what was yours?

    It was 75 and sunny and I had a day of vacation to burn, so a pedal around the county seemed like a good thing. Nice easy 40 mile spin to save up for tomorrow's usual group hammerfest...

    Started in Galesville to check on my boat.. floating nicely on concrete awaiting a new transmission = $$$$$$


    The route to North Beach has nice rolling, winding, bits like this... one of my favorites.


    The route goes down from the hills of horse farms to a road that skirts along the Bay.


    The beach at North Beach.. the water is still 50F, but the nice air temp brought some out


    The usual coffee and cake stop in North Beach... just did a fly by today.

    Harrington Harbor Marina


    Stopped at a bud's house to check on progress of his latest carbon fiber masterpiece... a newly designed A-Class catamaran. Coming along nicely!


    Beautiful day!!! Happy to be pedaling!

    Had to work all day...but after I managed to squeeze in 11 miles. Might not have been very much, but it always feels good to get out regardless of how far I ride.

    Nice pics...wish I had some scenery like that around here. One of these days I will have to bring a camera with me on a ride.

    Bautieri and I joined up for a 40+ mile ride around Harrisburg this evening. Hit up the Greenbelt and added a climb in. I didn't walk it, but I did stop 3 times. The view from the top was pretty impressive. Darn no pics
    We parted ways and I was hustling home as darkness was approaching. Came up to a red light and tried to be slick and stay in the pedals. Yup, dumped it in front of probably 10 cars. Bet I made their evening.
    It was a good ride. My longest total so far.
    I am beat, early to bed.

    Nice pics BTW.

    I finally finished rebuilding the rear wheel on my Giant Cypress and got in a nice 22 mile test ride. So far so good.

    That looks like a very enjoyable spring rest day ride. Very enjoyable indeed.

    I got in 33.7 miles after work this evening, and still managed to get home before sunset. Yay Daylight Savings Time!

    Four miles today before work. The knees seem to have recovered from the tendonitis I had earlier this week.

    Rides with Bau are always fun. Did he take you to the overlook on the Camp Hill side of the river?

    Did 30 miles this morning along PCH. Lots of sun and little wind. Wished I had time to keep going.

    It was very enjoyable. We stayed on the East Shore and I took him up a climb I had heard about. Darn near killed us both.
    Looking forward to riding with him more.

    Put in 17 miles after work. First ride since the great flood of 2010. We got 10.5" of rain in two days and over 16" in last two weeks. Most roads around rivers are still closed. Will try to get out again today or tomorow.

    Looks like a fine pedal and sorta sporty. Do you like the Garmin Connect online option better than the installed version (Training Center)? I haven't made up my mind, and was thinking about looking into some of the other things that are out there. It looks like they have made some improvements to Connect since the last I looked.

    It works for me and they have made improvements, and yes the ride was very sporty. There where 20 of us out for the ride I didn't get in on any of the sprints but I did manage to take one of the hills!
