1/31 - 8.2 miles
First ride in 4 weeks. Mainly rode thru nearby neighborhoods in west side of Joliet. A few side streets still had some snow/ slush but were pretty manageable.
1/29 17 miles total. Took my SS to work and back. A bit cold at 20F w/ a 20 mph headwind on the way home, but felt nice to be out on the bike.
1/31 15.2 miles. Would've gone longer, but didn't go out until late and quickly started to run out of daylight. First time outdoors on the road bike this year. Felt AWESOME to be out there.
Got my first short ride of 2009 in tonight. A quick two mile jaunt to the Redbox to pickup a movie. Whoo Hoo, it's begun! I don't count trainer miles.
35.6 miles in 2h 43min today from Norton Shores, MI to Muskegon State Park Campground and back.
It was windy, cold and wet. My toes were frozen in my Lake shoes, but not as bad as in my Sidi's. Next cold ride I'm going to use toe warmers.
So, it was 42 degrees and sunny and I didn't ride.
2/1 - 10.9 miles
Rode around west side of Joliet (between I-55 and Midland Ave.) More cloudier today than yeaterday but still nice for this time of year.
I didn't ride today, but I did ride on Monday. And on Tuesday. And on Wednesday. And on Thursday. And a nice little ride on Friday for which I had to bust out the arm warmers as the temps dipped down to 60 degrees and it was raining.
Rode 30 miles today on the track bike. Ran into a teammate from last year at mile 15 and had a quick chat.
My knee is healed.
Very good. Hopefully I'll get fitted some time this week and avoid another injury all together.
95 miles on the fixed gear around the Emerald Necklace. By some unexplainable force I made it out alive.
19 miles RT to work. It was pretty dry and over freezing today.
Bikes are fun. And better.
2/2- First of all, F Punxsawtawny Phil. Second of all I was so sad I didnt ride yesterday, I rode today. It was very exciting.
In tremont I nearly ran over a cute little puppy walking into the street hiding behind a parked car. Leash law anyone?
On detroit I had to dodge a snowball infront of the deliquent school.
Rode past Spin and had the willpower to not stop my ride to drool over SR11
Had close calls with 3 cars.
But it was a sunny day and every cloud had a silver lining. 34 miles.
30 some more miles. I cam so close to breaking in the new Giant, but I didn't I ran into another one of my old teammates.
I love my track bike, it lets me accelerate like crazy in a sprint, and it climbs shallow grades quicker than anything else.
I can't wait until I get my new one.
gimme a shout out the next time you guys ride
