    Did a nice metric Sunday with about 200 other riders (in the NCBC Summer Rally), though only about a third did the metric route. Elevation gain was around 2500 ft as this route was hilly. Overall it...

    Did 34.6 @ 16.6 in a group ride (out and back). Ride out was almost agonizingly slow. Ride back was more like it; probably averaged 19 in the last 1/3 of the ride after a couple of us pulled away....

    At these temperatures I go bare on the ears (or help my hair drape over them a tad). It's sometimes cold the first few minutes, but they warm up pretty quickly as the engine warms up--enough to get...

    My 33-mile ride late this morning started at 35 and ended at 45 F, so not too bad. I just wish it would be a bit warmer like it is supposed to be. This weather for the last few weeks has more like...

    I hang our 3 bikes up with the pulley-type hangers. They are convenient to get bikes up/down for a higher ceiling garage, but you have to have a place to put the excess cordage and not get tangled in...

    We had nice weather and about 35 trick or treaters. Last year we had about 50+, so I am guessing the kids are starting to age out. There's no question some are from other neighborhoods too. We handed...

    I got in a nice 33-miler with the local store ride with 30-40 riders. The temperatures were nice in the 60s and wind was light enough to not be noticeable. If the humidity was lower, it would have...

    I'll be there too for the metric century. It's fairly flat, though with rolling hills, so isn't too bad. Like you I did it last year.
