    Darn I wish we hadn't run out of gears.

    And don't forget how you were riding into the wind going up Deadman's Pass.

    Yes, something like that, but it's surprising our average speed only hit 13.4, we had a lot of steep hills today.

    I hit 419 once, although it might have been in kilometers.

    Bet it was raining!!

    I did a ride in 96 and it rained- and rained and you know the rest. It was one of my long rides and after about 6 hours- the Speedometer registerd 90 mph. I know I am fast downhill but not in the rain. Took off the back of the computer and brown liquid came out of it. Dried off the battery and it worked fone for the rest of the ride.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    This was done on our tandem and no it wasn't raining but the weather was damp. All the other readings were fine, just surprised us when we looked at this reading. I figured we must have gone under some kind of power line.

    Sometimes a bump in the road makes the switch in the pickup bounce and you get a couple of extra signals from the switch opening and closing too.

    Buncha Party Poopers. Could'nt ya just let 'em believe.
    They could've been going out every weekend trying to break their record. That way they could've gotten into shape.
