I honestly am disappointed I won't be meeting you this year. Hopefully we can meet up for next years' ride.

Better yet, why don't you consider going to Cino Heroica this September?

I'm sure news will come out eventually, but the scuttlebut is that the ride will henceforth be known only as the Cino. Apparently the official l'Eroica people, through what I understand was a polite conversation, have asked the folks at Cino to drop the name for infringement reasons. Bummer We all just call it Cino anyway.

@northbend, nice of you to say. I'm sorry to miss the opportunity to meet you and other forum regulars as well, but there's always next year...I do plan to plan around the event a bit better next year. Cino Heroica, eh? Or, rather, Cino? Does look like fun, though it's quite a bit more driving than the 3.5 hours to Paso Robles. Could make a stop with family in Portland. See, I'm talking myself into it already. Another one for the bucket!

I'm finally back out in the open air. Wednesday I took my Trek mtn bike to the Schuylkill River Trail. I parked the car at the bottom end of the Perkiomen trail and rode the last mile to connect to the SRT at the "hairpin bridge". Lots of flooded sections and ice pack still across the trail there so a slow ride. Once on the SRT it was very nice until VF park. That next mile was almost all ice pack and slush - 12 wide. I know the theory is that if you ride fast enough you can dance across all that but at 58 deg the ice/slush had no strength and the front wheel kept washing out which pitched the rear away. Much walking and sliding (that's why I took the mtn bike) but things then got much better once I passed VF. Pretty clear trail from there on with only a few of spots where the ice pack was still there. I rode in a POSH fashion ya know (Port Out, Starboard Home) as the north edge of the trail is first to get the sun and was the clear patch. Great ride and I did all 32 miles. Apparently that time on the trainer all winter did some good after all.

Yesterday was my local 12 mile hilly ride "around the block". Took the Cannondale CAAD3 as it will handle any residual salt better than my C&V stuff. We're gonna get some heavy rain tonight which should clean the roads nicely.

I have slain the Jabberwock (winter), I've been a beamish boy
Despite the brine and the awful slime, I chortled in my joy.

32 miles of mainly gravel today. Decided to ride the hardest sections of my next "event", but those 20 miles took an hour and a half. With the wife's running race this morning and the kid's basketball game, all up against evening plans, I simply ran out of time to do the 57 miles that I'd intended. Could have done more than I did, but didn't want to get lost either.

Sorry no pics, but a really awesome route. I will snap a few next time. Some of the minimum maintenance roads were very soft and still snow covered. Just when I thought I could get by with 30's, I'd hit a section where I was glad I had 40's, and a couple spots where the 2.2's would have been best. Firming up overall though, we should have a lovely spring.

Sounds like fun.

We did a couples' ride and stopped for lunch in North Minneapolis.

Lobster rolls at the Smack Shack. Hardly workout food.

Tour de Ganja
I had to work today, but for a lunchtime ride, I thought I'd see how many legal marijuana stores are within a 3-mile radius of my hotel. Just curious is all, really
So I did some quick research on the internet, cued up "Bob Marley's Golden Hits Vol. 1" on the iPod and hit the road, mon.

Less than two blocks away; you'll find some "Top Shelf" s**t at this Medical dispensary:


Five blocks west of that, is the not-yet-opened recreational store "Mr Buds." It's located next door to and operated by the same family as Col Hudson's Fish & Chips & Gourmet Burgers.

SYNERGY!


Heading back the other way, but still in our small [strike]seething den of vice and debauchery[/strike] bustling downtown core is the newest place in town, The New Leaf. They're next door to and absolutely delightful Asian Bakery.

SYNERGY!


Three blocks over on 1st Street is the Green Orchard dispensary, next door to a place that sells tobacco products and (believe it or not) pipes and other paraphenalia for the smoking thereof.
Um, SMOKER-GY?


The uptown crowd can get dispensation if they join the 8th Street Co-op, conveniently open until 8pm.


Sparket is a dispensary I pass a lot when I'm commuting to work by bicycle, as it happens to be on the street that dumps down where I pick up the MUP when I'm taking the scenic route to work. I read these guys are hoping to open a recreational side to their business, there on the side of the building with the green painted doors, although right now the Medical side of the biz (currently UNtaxed) is the profit center for the fledgling industry, while the recreational side (HEAVILY taxed) is struggling a bit. The Republican caucus of our state government is working hard to get some taxation slapped on the medical side, too. That's right, those darn Republicans want to raise your taxes. Same old story



Then out on the highway another mile is the only fully operational recreational dope store in town, The Hidden Bush. You may notice that Karma Wellness is located upstairs; and you'll never guess in a million years what they sell there. I'll give you a hint: their decor includes several green crosses on doors, windows etc.


And directly across the highway (heh... "highway") - Coming Soon!


I'm guessing it's not going to be a designer gas lamp boutique.

After that, I turn around and head back to work. (heh... "head")

Round trip (heh... "trip") 6.2 miles

FINALLY got one of the bikes out of the basement and rode it outside. With the heat wave we are having the streets are dry and it was a great day to ride. Temps in the upper '40s when I headed out. My first ride of the season was 20 miles. I was getting mighty tired of using the trainer down in the basement.

Dodged the rain at the Dalles Mtn 60 in Oregon yesterday. It's a mixed dirt/pave adventure in the Columbia River Gorge. Probably 200 riders showed on MTB, Road, Cross and Commuter bikes. I appeared to be the only vintage rider on my 1974 Legnano Gran Premio.

I love the carny atmosphere of the Mid-Atlantic beach towns. That Sea Bright mural replica of an old post card is outstanding. Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey have town after town like this.

Agree, I worked some of the games as a teenager on the Point Pleasant beach boardwalk, there were definitely some Carny freaks.

As the daytime riding season draws to a close due to high temps, I got yet another in today. This one was 125 km and change. Afternoon temps in the high 80s. I went a round about way to the north coast and back.


Brunch. I bought the 800mg ibuprophen tabs at the pharmacy next door. It made for a nice appetizer; the banana was dessert. By the time I went across the street and had a cup of coffee; then walked the few steps to take the next pic, the pain was nearly gone from my knees. 20 km later it was completely gone, and remains so now. What will the morning bring?

60's this morning, but a front blew through and it was 40's with a strong north wind by the time I came home from work. So, I decided to do something completely different and rode the ss-ss down some paths for about 10 miles. Not a workout, but it beat stewing over not riding at all.

106 miles down into the Pinelands on Sunday. The sun came out briefly, and the wind got progressively stronger as the afternoon wore on. It was't really a very nice day for a ride!
