offline for a while

Some Pr*t has taken out the phone lines in my area big time by knocking down the control boxes- so I will not be able to get internet connection for a while. can still read postings at work but cannot post.

On top of that no ride the last 4 days. High winds and horizontal rain make it a bit dangerous.

- stay sane!

- i've been off the bike for a week... messed up my right knee on an 8-mile death march through a local flea market a week ago... with a bit of rest, i'm up for getting back into my daily 25-mile routine this morning... (WX forecast for high of 78F w/partly sunny conditions; tomorrow is high of 68F - a cold front!)

:-)

Oh no! I'll miss the pictures of those yummy foods you eat while riding

I haven't been on the bike this week. Too much rain, wind and work around the house.

Dang, sorry to hear that, stapfam. I only managed 197 miles in the last week, myself.
