Hey Colonel, I really like that bike! Photogravity, great photos of your ride today. Lovely country. I have been in Sun City Arizona all week visiting my dad. I've had to make do with some early morning runs. I miss my bike. Flying home tomorrow.

DG, you sure have some inviting ride pics. 60deg in Loo'vul too. Nice.

I got out on the Blackstone Bikeway for a while at 2PM. The river is a raging torrent, and the air was about 40deg but not so windy as yesterday. There were sings up along the river "Trout water -All fisining prohibited from Mar 1 to 6AM on the second Saturday of April".

That is some "head clearing" scenery, photogravity. Looks great.

I took a 2 hour tour on my Ted Wojcik today: all singletrack with some hiking to explore some off the trail sights. Boy was it worth it!

Rode out onto the levee at the edge of the Everglades and wanted to include a stop at the ocean, but the headwind wore me down before I got there.

Downtown, to the Shuffleboard Club, to a St Pete Bicycle Co-Op meeting. Trying to get it off the ground and promote bicycling in a VERY bicycle oriented city. So Much potential, just have to get it going.

Out to Baca, to visit friends. 73 km round trip. Out and back on the same road, and had a slightly more aggressive headwind on the way back than on the way out. Had to limp home the last 15 miles, as the rear tire had become badly deformed, and was making enough racket that I stopped to see what was going on. Let air out of it twice, and kept my speed below 20 kmh the rest of the way home.



All of these are file photos, in case you recognize any of them. I don't know why the last one won't show up.

I'm a thirsty boy! I think they're around 28oz or so, fairly large... When I first moved back to Florida, I took my beach cruiser out on this same levee without giving any thought to hydration. I rode the 17 mile loop in the summer heat and learned a good lesson about preparation

The sun never came out, the wind was blowing down the valley around 15 MPH and the temperature only made it up to 39° today, but I was intent to get the Norman Rapide out for its first ride of 2013. I recently built a new set of wheels and wanted to take them out for a couple rides before I ride my first brevet next weekend, so this was a quick shakedown run. I'm planning another, longer ride Wednesday after work. Today's ride was just over 14 miles with 523 feet of ascent. The bicycle performed as expected and my first impressions of the Brand Bois Cypres tires are positive. The Vittoria tires on the previous wheels measured 25mm across and the Cypres measure 31mm, so these are considerably more cushy, yet they don't seem to give up any performance.

Another thing to note is that the new wheels weigh the same as the previous wheels when measured with my bathroom scale which measures within 1/10th of a lb. Strangely, the new rear wheel felt lighter but when it was weighed it was the same. The front wheel felt about the same and weighed the same. I'm not a weight weenie, but these things are nice to know for the sake of comparison.

Dallas, you've got some of the prettiest roads to ride on - and the Norman ain't a half-bad bike with which to ride them. Jealous

Scott: great scenery as usual - nice to see both road and rock represented (particularly as I've done both in that neck of the woods thanks to you). Brings back some good memories.

Everyone else: keep 'em coming! As for myself, lots of riding getting done - just have really, really slow Internet connectivity and the past two attempts at uploading to my Flickr have timed out. I've just got to pick a time when nobody is awake here and there's no competion for bandwidth

Soon, I hope - until then, everyone enjoy your rides and remember: spring is coming soon.

Saturday, I rode to the Food Coop, 2.5 miles each way. It was cold and snowing lightly, and I was under-dressed, but it was nice to get on the bike anyway.

First Day of Spring Ride

I rode 48 miles today through hilly Eastern Connecticut. Sterling (Oneco-Sterling Hill-Ekonk)-Griswold-North Stonington-Voluntown-Sterling. All in CT. Cold at about 38 and windy! elevation gain of 1650' It definitely did not feel like spring (It snowed yesterday).








Hell Hollow Rd



I had to walk my bike for about 1/3 of a mile because of some snow that hadn't melted in a shady spot in the woods on this road. This road passes through a state forest and isn't plowed during the winter. It is also closed to cars.



Glasgo Dam




Hills in North Stonington






Even with the cold it was a beautiful crisp sunny day. I'm glad I went out!

Just a few miles around the park, but it sure was nice to get out with my honey and enjoy the warm weather (40F).

On Monday, I'll probably be commuting on the townie with the studded tires again.

20 miles, end-to-end round trip on the Minuteman Bikeway, Bedford to Alewife (Cambridge). Temp about 40F, very windy. (Nyah, our weather was worse than yours. At least for most of you.) We stopped for a snack in Lexington. Wonder if anything lives in there.



Now I'm sitting here, drinking an good IPA, listening to a Haydn concerto, reading BF, and feeling sleepy. Life is good.
