    Especially snow as deep as your thoughts. Nasty stuff.

    You guys crack me up. People from Ohio and Indiana complaining about snow.

    We had a warm up two weeks ago (2 days above freezing) and I could actually see concrete on the roads. It made me think that I would soon be riding my summer bike outside rather than on the rollers. Since then we have gotten 2 1/2 feet of new snow, and yes the roads are snow covered once again.

    Oh well there is always the winter bike with the Nokian W-240's and the snow has to melt sometime.

    we still have 2 feet of snow in the low spots in my front yard, the banks on my road are between 3 and 4 feet tall, even bigger near the road entrance. I'm hoping for an early spring but it doesn't look like it.

    minor threat = good; Green Day = bad.

    Would that make you more proud of the frame? Then yes.

    No. Only this is permitted by the Southside Italian American Image Management Committee of Chicago. Or this.

    you may want to check with your local branch. To avoid "problems".

    Good stuff for wandering thoughts. I got an email from Active.com with an ad for it. Wow! That looks like an awesome week! It actually may fit into my racing schedule too. To do a rebuild/base week with that kind of volume/intensity just a few weeks before Superweek would be simply awesome. Because I'd use it as a workout I only wonder what kind of recovery I'd need.

    I was just thinking of an American ring and an Italian ring surrounding the panel which contains the name of the bike on the downtube. Hmmm.

    It appears that the BFNWMC is growing. When the snow melts (in June) I will post another ride maybe some hills.
