2/8 - 18.0 miles
Rode up into Plainfield and back. Route 59 gonna be a mess this year with the road being widened to 4 lanes (finally) thru my area and aham's area. About 20 degrees colder than yesterday. Will take tomorrow off bike but on Tuesday, will definitely ride again as it's supposed to hit 60.

51 miles today over rolling Medina County roads. It was nice to separate from the trainer and rollers for a spell.

Thanks!! Felt pretty good. Only had a twinge at full extension when standing. Should be 100% in a week I think.

I rode to work today.
Mario and I had a cooking class today with a decent turnout; mostly wealthy conservatives driving Mercedes just watching Mario and I do our thang and paying out the assho' for the chance.
I swear, with the ammount of applause and whistles we got when we were making the dessert you'd think we were stars. It was pretty cool.

Garysol, have fun at your training...

I snuck out at lunch for 15 miles on Bagley Rd to Berea and back- Freaking Cotton Head almost killed me in front of Olmsted Twn Shp Police Station. Never before have I "almost" been hit but today, if I were a cat I'd have 8 lives. I should know that Ma & Pa need to go out on Mondays and get cat food and depends...

peace

Hmm, great tasting, yet leaves the breath fresh minty .

Lately I've been mixing Hammer Gel chocolate and rasberry in my Gel Flask.

Funny you say that I have a quart of Hammer Vanilla still left from last year. I was thinking of mixing it with the choco/mint. What do you think??

squirted on a banana after a ride would be nice, add a little yougart and a cherry and you'll have a banana split with "go"

So you know the Smith's?

I got in another estimated 60 miles today. I felt a little faster than the previous rides and I wasn't tired at all.
Lame, I know. It's the off-season.

Riding on the flooded road, with the ice buildup, on road tires, at night, is a "memory".
