All but one of us are very regular Bike Party riders in San Jose or on the peninsula. SJBP has does a century ride each year, and this was the first long ride put together by the Peninsula Bike Party. Find them both on facebook.

We got in one last run for 2012, but it wasn't on bikes. Bretton Woods, NH. Don't know what distance we went.

From yesterday:
My tandem stoker, mid-afternoon:



Coming off the trail about 4:20. Three hours working hard in 5degF weather does things to one's beard:



No pics from today.

27f and overcast with light winds. Some ice on the MUP, but the roads were clear. 20.5 miles in 1:18 on the 1978 Trek.

Happy New Year.

This is great. Skis on my feet is one thing I haven't ever been able to figure out so I don't even bother. Looks like a great day!

Ortlieb Micro saddle bag. Typically comes with a whole fancy quick release system that attaches to the saddle rails, but it looks really fugly as it makes the bag drop a few inches below the rails, with a bunch of plastic inbetween. So I removed all that stuff and just strap it with some simple velcro. (You might find info of the quick release system not being able to attach to a brooks, but it will if you have your saddle slid fairly far back)

I love Ortlieb stuff, and have ripped through two saddle bags before the last few years, so I decided to drop an extra 10 bucks and just get something that will last a lifetime. The roll top closure system is pretty neat, waterproof, and it surprisingly holds a TON of stuff.

First time out in weeks (and I can feel it!), about 40 degrees and sunny but I don't have any real cold weather gear. Took a short ride to start the year out right and try the new Concor saddle... definitely more comfortable than the Turbo.

I got out my S3Xy Lambert and rode out to Dune Road, the road that follows the barrier island from Westhampton Beach to Tiana, NY. Expensive homes, wetlands, and a lot of hurricane damage. I took a detour past the home of the late writer P. G. Wodehouse in Remsenburg. Total somewhere around 55 miles. I saw lots of deer, one blue heron, and countless other birds ranging from flocks of geese, crows, on down to little brown ones. Sparrows and wrens I guess. Photos to follow.

An easy ride today....just to get one in, down to the waterfront to downtown, a lap of The Pier, and home again.


NO manatees or dolphins to see today... :-( Lots of people out walking, riding, kayaking, sailing....just a beautiful day.

Three weeks of mental agony and not being able to ride. The knee is coming around and the roads have "cleared" a little. I found out at Christmas that the primary road in the area I mountain bike is being plowed this winter because of a logging operation. That provided the perfect scenario today to drop some tire pressure on the Scott mtb and go for a ride. 25 degrees at the start and only 16 miles - but they were a wonderful 16 miles. Worked hard up the hills and froze on the way back down. But, it was perfect.

The paved road condition:


The end of the pavement - ready to head up in the hills:





The road was in great shape with only some loose junk on the corners thanks to de-icer that was laid down.



Even saw a little wildlife:

Scozim, nice snow pics, are you using any studs? I can't wait to use my Nokians on my mtb, it just hasn't been icy enough.

No, haven't gone with studs. There was pretty good traction on the side of the road and the rear only felt like it would slip out a couple of times on the paved road. Once I hit the gravel road it was smooth sailing. I saw an ad on C.L. a month or so for some 2.1" studded mtb tires but I didn't have the cash to pick them up. I'm running Panaracer Smoke and Dart tires that were brand new this past spring and their grip is pretty good.

finally some snow to ride

Nothing snow worthy in the vintage stable, busted out the Tennessee Titanium weapon. Hit the trails on some fresh snow, just a dusting, but fun never the less.
