Good one today. 85 mi and ~5400í climbing. Plenty of steep stuff.
I like them better than the Pirelliís they replaced but it hasnít been wet enough yet to see if theyíre going to stay on.

Final ride for the BG for a while.

Itís going to donate some parts to another Cross Check build and others will go back into the parts bin. I may rebuild it as a thumb shifted townie but who knows.

Riding in our neighborhood. The 100 year old concrete makes things interesting.

let's see.... the weather report says that it is 16F, winds are north at 9mph, and it's snowing.
Sure, why not. It's not as if things are going to improve soon, and I've got the clothes for it.



The snow was a bit slippery in spots, but a virtue of the cold weather is that the snow doesn't pack into ice once cars drive over it. Other than cold toes, it wasn't too awful.

Trying to keep up with this almost 3 year old speedster riding a Strider no pedal bike and me on a 1986 Le Tour I picked up yesterday.
She made it 1/2 mile without breaking a sweat. Next attempt will be 1 mile.
