    14.35 miles to the LBS and back to have the "V-brakes" adjusted on my "new to me", 2004 Cannondale Adventure 1000 Hybrid, I found for, $150.00 and some other minor stuff. For some reason I have a problem adjusting the V-brakes, I never had with the Cantilevers??

    Rode 10km to the Giant shop to buy a new chain and cassette - figured that with over 6000km on them, it was probably time to have them replaced. Then rode another 50km after that.

    But ... is it a hybrid trainer?

    My trainer is kinda hybrid after I completely took it apart and rebuilt the handlebar to be a sort of aerobar style bike with the HR pickup still on he hands

    15 miles yesterday = a leisurely pace today as I begin to ramp up my mileage after a few weeks of very light riding. Shot 230+ still photos using a pic every 30secs mode on the gopro hero I was gifted these holidays past. Then shot a scenic finish of my last 12mins riding in 1080p video (multi quality youtube link below). Amazing 50+ degree weather here! Rode to Corona Park and did 2 laps around Meadow Lake and when I returned to Astoria I shot the video below, East River, Hellgate Bridge, Triboro Bridge, and Astoria Park (where I cramped! Which I never do!).

    It's huge, and can (albeit crappily) link up to the BK/Queens greenway trails that can take you further east, almost to Nassau county.

    Rode 10 miles today with oldest son and my wife. Wast a small ride around town. Temp was 55 degrees. I work a jersey and like to froze. My chest was freezing. Tights and arm warmers were great, but I got to find a jeresy.

    32.2 miles on a 2.5 mile short loop just south of my home. I was on call at work so I couldn't be more than 5 minutes from my car so I just picked a nice section of road and did intervals into and with the wind. Any outdoor riding in Northern Minnesota in January is a good day.

    45 Weather. I went for an 8 mile ride after school. It snowed on Saturday. I thought the path would be clear by now, but it wasn't. I had an average speed of about 11mph with a sprint of like 27mph (there were some clear sections). I almost fell a couple of times. Next time I go for a ride with snow on the ground, I am putting my hybrid/touring tires on. Riding with my 28mm road slicks was disastrous. I saw a couple of hardcore commuters. I yelled "hardcore commuters!" and one of them yelled back "yeah!"

    It wasn't today, but Thursday I took my longest one way ride so far. My sister came over and when she went home I hitched a ride there and rode back home, the ride totaled out to a little over 22.5 miles.

    Snowed on Wednesday. I figured it would be melted enough to get a ride in. Boy was I right! I met up with my friend and we went for coffee and pizza. Got in a 25mi ride (my first ride over 10mi in about 2 months) and it was great! I got a skunk stripe on my new white/black/red bibs .

    Our mostly snowless winter turned white this afternoon, with a light snow falling for several hours. I took my hybrid with studded tires on one of my favorite routes, a loop past many lakes. They're all finally frozen, and several folks were out ice fishing. Road shoulders were snow covered with half an inch, which is fun to ride through for a change of pace. Just under two miles from home, there was a loud "bang" and my saddle disappeared. The bolt had snapped, and parts were strewn in the snowy road. I found them all and dropped them in the pannier, and rode home standing up. 32.2 miles in the snow at 19F. While a good ride, I do miss July. :-)

    I should have been studying for finals... But I procrastinate .

    Did the same ride I did yesterday, but took the light rail back home because my back started hurting because I injured it on Friday... My back was fine yesterday..

    Btw, I ordered an 808 #11 keychain camera that I will attach to my helmet so I can have some ride videos. It only has a 250mah battery, which equates to ~40min. This is not long enough, as my rides average about 2 hours. I bought a 1350mah external battery that also happens to have a solar panel on it. I will probably end up attaching it to my helmet, but if not, it will be plugged into the camera and stay in my jersey pocket.

    Picture from today:
