the real question is - did you carry that brick with you?[/QUOTE]

Yea it's the old curb trick. You got it down to a science. No I didn't carry it that's in my front yard.

Rode with 2 of my older riding buddies. (64,72) We rode down by the Ochlockonee River. Nice afternoon got in 30. May have been the best day for riding for a while as weather is expected to get cold again early next week.

I was going to go out on the trace after I dropped my dad off at the airport but realized I had forgotten my shoes after we were well on our way. I went home and planned to go back to the trace - I could have made it back with enough daylight for a 1hr ride but got stuck behind a tractor on a windy 2 lane road for 10 minutes and was so frustrated I just turned around and went home. Now I'm going to eat a big bowl of double chocolate moose tracks to make me feel better.

In the 70's today. Did 24 miles solo after work. Had 3 days off to visit family over the week end in Atlanta. Good to be warm again.

Headed up to LBS with CL find, new fixie, 15'ish miles round trip, used MUS (multi-use-sidewalk) most of the way. No comp, no time, no speeds, just spinning thru the sprawl.

I went to go out this morning and thought it was warm enough out... made it 10min out and had to turn around b/c my ears hurt terribly. Seemed to have stiff breeze in every direction... what a waste.
