    Good job. It was a bit cool today. What time did you do your ride? I started mine, Hilton/Riverside area in Newport News, around 9:15AM.

    Started mine about 10. Had an appointment at Jefferson and Mercury at 11. Then it was off riding randomly until I got home around 2.......

    I got a chuckle out of the picture of the smart vehicle parked next to the not-quite-as-smart vehicle.

    I'm anxiously awaiting the months of blue sky like your pictures depict. Spring is so close I can almost feel it; unfortunately, I'll feel it in my sinuses when it gets here. Oh well, that gives me a good excuse to leave the valley and ride in the forested hills.

    Ahhh.....Oregon. I love the mountains, trees and all that goes along with it. Not to mention the coastal roads that are available there. I really have enjoyed my time in the Pacific Northwest!!!!!

    I reckon your "Beast" is as long as mine and probably as heavy.

    Difference is I have two sets of legs to propel mine and one of those sets is strong.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    My legs aren't all THAT bad. Been riding steadily since 2000. ((no car owned since then))

    MY Beastie-- 55lbs all up weight- Doesn't accelerate- slow up hills- doesn't go round corners and the brakes eventually stop it------But great fun.

    Full offroad Tandem that will take everything that our hills can throw at it.
