Finally, back on the bikes!!

The last thirteen days have been dedicated to getting some much needed chores done at home, the biggest of which was repairing our fence. We, my bride and I, replaced 80 linear feet of stockade fence and stained both sides of it (2 coats) plus five extra sections for use later. That's demo., installation of 480 sq. feet; and staining 2880 square feet by brush.



They (the chores) are done and I'm back on the bikes again.

Made a 20 mile Ice Cream run this afternoon.



...and found these on the way home...



Those into utility cycling can appreciate that find!!

Does fencing count as a cross training sport?

Glad the projects are done - if you get bored I have a few around here that have been neglected for several years...
