First long ride on the new bike :)

It was only 2 1/2 hours, but it was so peacefull and nice! For anyone in the midwest, I highly recomend biking in downtown Detroit. I know i know, bad rep, but the River Walk is almost complete, and you can bike from downtown to Belle Isle and back. and there is the Dequinder cut, that takes back into the city.

BTW the old Sprint flew like a dream, and was welcome in the new Middle Eastern restarant when I stopped for food! havn't used all the gears yet, but she shifts nice and got some good speed on the river front. Sorry, just had to share!

Excellent, magickzzl. I was on the RiverWalk and D-Cut this morning with some runners, walkers, and many fishermen. You couldn't see Canada for the fog, but you could smell the malted barley from the Canadian Club distillery. Would have been a great day to be a bootlegger back in the day.

Excellent! Weathers great right now, took another slow ride again tonight, went by the Model T plex and back down to the river front, everything is so nice and clean right now, just have to stay away from the ice cream stand! lol
