Long base building ride on the MTB today. Strung together a few regional trails, some single and double track and mostly avoided roads. Feeling kind of tired tonight.

Great pictures Northbend!

It was cold today in RI and we have family visiting from Florida, so I was only able to get out for a short ride of about 10 miles. I took the commuter ss bike due to the sloppy conditions and had a good time in the sunny 20 degree morning with the wind whipping at 20-30 mph.

I went to Roger Williams park in Providence, a really great park to check out if you are ever in the area. The Cyclocross National Championship races were held here in 2005 and 2006.

Views across two of the ponds




The Temple of Music; worthy of an ode by Pindar.




To give you an idea of how windy it was today, my bike blew over twice trying to get this shot!

I have something more cv in the works which I'll post soon.

Great shots from the Northwest and the Northeast, guys! What a contrast.

Had to fill in for a guy this Sunday and missed out on some of the best riding weather in PHX this Winter.
Would've been ideal to hook up with Saguaro and ride the Arizona Canal.

Also missed out meeting a doctor who is an avid road cyclist visiting my landlord on Sunday. He unfortunately got diagnosed with MS! He's looking to sell his rides and my landlord mentioned my love of bikes. Poor guy!

But all wasn't lost, I did put in 14 miles around the neighborhood Monday, while the temps stayed in the 70s. Crappy cold weather is forecast for the week ahead. ARGH!

Pics? Contrast? More pics from the Northeast...



Of course this wasn't biking. Yeah, I know, I'm being self-indulgent posting pics like this. But what the heck.

A nice California ride on Presidents day. we jumped on the bike trail along Jamboree in Irvine and took it down to the back Newport bay trail. super nice weather, though a bit windy. found a good use for my carradice bag, its a good place to roll one up if its really windy

Cool pics from the States (no matter which one)! Am I missing all that snow, though? Uh-uh

Rode 25 miles yesterday - the first day I had my bike after my shipment cleared Customs. Felt great to be riding in that heat, muggy or not.

Pics in about a week as I can't upload from the Govvie computer. You'll all be salivating soon enough

Just too pretty of a day not to get out (2 miles walking before breakfast doesn't count) BTW, our yard was full of Robins this AM, heading North...Spring IS coming. So, after framing up some photos for an upcoming exhibition, and grocery shopping, I aired up the Bridgestone for a quick lap....21 miles or so. First, downtown to the water front

then a quick lap around The Pier, before they blow it up....

Picked up the Pinellas Trail Downtown and headed into the HEADWIND through the warehouse district...


and a few miles from home, picked up a 1 1/2" concrete nail.....delay of ride....threw in spare tube, but tire may be toast with a BIG hole in it, have to try and reinforce it. :-(

Blurry...because I was PISSED OFF!!!!! and not paying attention to the iPhone camera....and sweat in my eyes.

Today I rode with some good friends on our second annual "Not so hilly then Rosalies Chili Ride. Ride from Mark and Rosalies house on rail trails up into the mountains until we find snow.

The all important potty stop at Rattlesnake Lake

Waiting for the regroup.

Here they come

Our mud freckled divas urge us to go on just a bit further

Pretty soon, the snow is deep enough to convince us to turn around. We race back for bowls of hot Chili. Yum

Robofunk, the flat I got AFTER getting off the trail, in the bike lane on 30th. BIKE LANE=the 24-36" wide strip on the right side of the road filled with loose gravel, standing water and road debris.

You know how to live it up out there!

Downhill skiing here today, then Fargo fun this afternoon.

I'll bring a camera.

Not counting the 5 mile walk I took in the drizzle yesterday, I stayed in all day and watched shows about bacon on the Food Network with my lady. I really wanted it to snow overnight, but it never materialized. Not feeling like another ride on the rollers, I bundled up and took to the streets. It was a mostly level 20 mile ride (Hurley Mountain Road), and my legs are thankful for the spin.

Scenery is farm fields and fog today, but here's my favorite tree on the route

Oh, I forgot this one from yesterday's ride, downtown St Pete, they are starting to build up the Grand Prix track...That would be a HOOT to do a CRIT around...I mean, they will already HAVE the streets all blocked off....just give us cyclists an hour or two!!!! I actually had mentioned it to someone who is involved with it last year, and they thought it would be cool, AND help with community relations too....have a family ride time, kids race, and then more serious (Silly guys in lycra) race!

That snowy ride looks like fun!

Rubberlegs, Yeah--the bike lanes tend to be garbage-strewn gutters in lots of places. I try to ride the white line as much as possible. At least then I can see if there's a nail or other potentially damaging object against the paint.


I'd be interested to see a crit there. I'm no racer, so I'd be on other side of the fence though. Theres usually a cook out at my house and a group of us ride downtown on Saturday to see the touring cars and other support races. It's a good time.
