    December 10 2011 Getting Christmas Tree 001.jpg

    Went out to get the Christmas Tree today. Ended up being an 18km round trip. The place that has the trees is surrounded by a major highway expansion project that been on for a couple years. It's a real pain to navigate. Never knowing which roads will be open, if the shoulder will be there next week.

    Are you happy with the Y? I just ordered the small one, prepairing for summer holydays. Wanted to use a trailer tonight but gave up. It is 10-15 centimeters of snow on the road. The MUP has been plowed already but not the road and I would have had to do some riding on the road. Riding a Brompton w trailer in 15 cm snow is not for me.

    12 mile grocery run at 33* on the fixie, after a 25 mile ride shaking down my winter bike (a Fisher Opie with Nokian studs). I've also been feeding a friends dogs every day as she is out of town. I probably should pull the trailer down and get it ready for winter use as well. But there's always tomorrow.....

    I got the Large, its got 9 1/2" of ground clearance under the axle. It rides smooth and pulls great. I added some extra tie down points to the trailer. about 10 of those 1 1/2" U-bolts, drilled thru the deck and bolted. great for securing more awkward types of loads.
    I used to routinely pull 80 - 140lbs twice a week and the trailer hasn't failed me in any way.

    Yesterday I did a 12 mile RT ride with stops at the recycle center and Goodwill.

    IMG_20111231_142812.jpg

    Today I rode to a park nearby, bringing my 24kg and 16kg kettlebells with me. I also brought a home-made suspension trainer (functionally the same as TRX, but cost me less than $10 to make) and hung it over the basketball hoop. I worked out there while two of my kids played - kettlebell snatches (15 minutes w/24kg), kettlebell shot-puts (5 minutes w/16kg), and 5 mins of suspension work. Only 2 miles RT. Almost 90 pounds in the stock Raleigh 20 Pletscher rack and it did fine. It swayed around a bit but I just took it easy.

    Sorry about the color of the pictures. I think my camera settings were off...

    Ahh, kettlebells. I have had 60lbs of kettlebell on the Xtracycle pulling a kid trailer, that alone was a good enough workout. Not to mention the fact nearly every kettlebell workout has me on the edge of dry heaving. When I use my kettlebells consistently I do love how much stronger my core is because my back doesn't get that dull ache any more.
    Follow me as I prepare for the 2010, wait no 2012, maybe 2013 Tour Divide, ahh hell I will do it one day...

    40 Miles on the Madsen yesterday-- rode up to Cheshire on the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail to meet someone who for a CL sale. I scored some nice wheels for my CF bike. Good steady workout-- nothing beats including cargo cycling in one's road training regimen, IME.

    It was 35F on the way out. 60 on the way home. This global weirding stuff is freaking me out! I was working outside in the afternoon in a T-Shirt and Tevas.

    Threw all of this... a 1960's Moulton Mk2...



    In this...







    The 65 pounds of sidewalk salt I towed home yesterday was less exciting... but was impressed as I used my winter beast with it's A three speed for the towing.

    Hauled a 23kg dog food bag on my front rack. I had some doubts about handling at first, but it rode OK with a little attention.

    Yesterday I brought a load of recycles to the recycle center. On the way back I picked up ~450 pounds of sand for the garden (3 Rubbermaid bins with ~150 lbs each, 2 on the BAW 64A trailer, one behind the BAW on my old child trailer). No pictures, sorry.

    About 5 miles RT, but the return trip was definitely more noteworthy than the typical 2.5 mile bike ride.

    A picture of the person working at the place that sold you the sand could be priceless.
