    Good luck Rover.

    Last night I rode a pretty windy Critical Mass Ride. We had 30 brave souls come out to face the 30+mph winds and a bit of snow...Good times.

    No riding for three days. First day I did volunteer work all day in the state park. That was enjoyable, mostly involving tooling around on a golf cart and sitting around talking to people about birds. The next day it was windy and rainy and I read a novel and cruised the 'net. Today was cold and rainy and I vegetated most of the day. I over ate each of these three days and now have a headache. I need to get out of the effing motorhome! I did "show up" today and ran about a mile and lifted weights and did core exercises for about a half an hour. It all felt like torture. I should have done the exercise before I ate too much and consumed too much caffeine. I still am trying to find my sweet spot with food and exercise.

    Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be nice. I think that I'll go for a nice ride. Or, I'll take the dog on a car trip to Salineno to see if we can spot a brown jay.

    After weeks of low temperatures and rainy commutes to work, a Clyde riding buddy and I set off on a 65 minute ferry ride across to the island of Aegina with our bikes. Reaching the main port/town, we trekked all along the northern coast to the town of Souvala for a nice cold coffee (temperature was around 19C / 68F) and returned to the town a few hours later for a late lunch/early dinner. The total distance was only around 25km, but it was continuous small hills with a couple of large ones which really knackered us. Overall a great single day outing taking advantage of the weather and natural beauty of the Greek islands.


    Here's the route taken with the port on the left side and Souvala on the right...

    Typical Greek road found around the islands; perfect for trekking because of light traffic!

    Just got in from a 197 mile brevet (300k). Second ride on the new tandem, beautiful weather during the day, although it was cold this morning and cold this evening.

    Yesterday I did what I call a triple nickle. I walked 5 miles @ 5% incline @5 mph. I did get a delivery from Nashbar yesterday as well. Today is an off day.

    Well today was one of the few nice weather days we've had in months and I made good use of it. I started with a nice ride through 25 miles of rolling hills. I washed my car. I mowed my lawn. Then I had an unbelievably fun marathon session of racquetball (played for 3 hours) in the evening.
