    I went on a night ride at the Fullerton loop. Here is the top of "Heart Attack Hill". We went easy on the ride..our record during the day was 1:24 hours. I big jump from my first ride of 3 hours! We completed the whole Night Ride in 1:38. WOw! I guess we weren't going that slow after all! THe Trek Dualsport 8.4 is TRULY the best of both worlds!!!

    It was 57 and sunny in Denver yesterday. I didn't get out of the house all day. Yeah, I'm kicking myself; every day is a gift, but days like that should not be wasted. It won't get out of the 20s today, and we are getting 3 inches of snow.

    Quire extraordinairy, I usually complain about the harsh swedish winter, but its all green this year. We had some snow & ice the weeks before christmas, but the weather turned mild, and then there was a storm almost covering all of Sweden - and swept the few spots of snow away! And lucky this lazy bum, ´cos I havent switch to noobies on the hybrid, today I got a 40 km run on slicks. And we´re talking late december, almost new years eve!!! Some pics + a reminder of last year this time...

    Nice picture ... but it's missing something ... ahh ... that's it: a hybrid would make it complete

    Do you feel comfortable and in control on those handlebars?
    Have you ever tried riding slightly bent flatbars?

    A lot of nice pictures on these last pages people

    Personally ... I use my hybrid through winter for weakly training rides with my new triathlon team and therefore I'm not able to take pictures anymore.

    Well, to be honest, I do feel like a shallow piece of crap... The enviromentalist in me makes this tricky. I like it a lot, but then again, I dont. Older folks than me seem to remember that bleek winters turn up now & then. So I go for the unconsious and denial = its expected and has nothing to do with global warming.

    Call it denial or common sense.
    The earth has been gradually warming over the last 10.000 years since the last glacial Weichselien without any human input.
    A few harsh or relaxed winters have no significant statistical impact on that, neither does any data over 30 years.
    Thousands of robots have been measuring the oceans' temperatures for nearly 10 years now and they haven't found hard evidence of dramatic warming.
    Hey ... we ride bikes We're the good guys

    The fun part is that if/when it gets worse, Sweden (along with the rest of Northern Europe) might get quite a bit colder if the Gulf Current ceases its circulation.

    Trying not to get into a pro-anti AGW debate, but the data available covers a significantly longer period than the last 30 years.
    It's also interesting to note that the opinions of people who have spent their lives studying the climate aren't nearly as divided as those of the general public. In fact, it's quite safe to say that the vast majority is in agreement on the main conclusions.

    It's also safe to say that if they would conclude otherwise ... they would make their own jobs useless
    Remember that "scientists" once told everyone the earth was flat and that they even sentenced some other scientist to death for saying it wasn't.

    Anyway ... anyone riding a bike is a good guy to me

    I just trained on my (new Nashbar Adjustable Fluid) trainer for 45min. It was my first time on a trainer. It was tough, because I haven't touched a bike in about 7 weeks. I have to get back in shape for the cycling season that starts here in late March or early April.

    It didn't actually take me anywhere, but since this is kind of like a ride report thread, I thought I'd post here.

    Fiery & AdelaaR; great input guys, even though I tend to believe we people got something to do with the climate. But, what the heck, theres still no snow and yesterday I fixed the puncture on my hybrid and went for another ride! If this continue I will be better prepared for this summer than ever...

    See above - I´m still enjoying rideable weather and havent yet needed my trainer. And heaven knows I´m not complaining. I hope it disappears in a grave of dust under my bed!

    I've been riding most nights recently and took the hybrid tonight with the camera. Never thought of taking the camera before "Doh"
    Great riding in the country being warmer months here its a 30"C at 2.00am no wind bright moon and no cars on national highway1.

    Towns every 10 or 20km passed though Windsor, the town hall is pretty much all there is here.


    Endless dirt tracks though the bush.


    I might have to learn how to take better night pic's
