Bikes: It's complicated.

I find that if I can ride 70, it's not as hard as it would seem to stretch to 125. Going from 25 to 50 is a lot harder, IMO.

It was downright balmy for Feb in New England! I was able to sneak out for a quick, damp 15-20 after work. The C&V rain bike is currently out of commission as I swap rims from 27" to 700c, so the OT Aluminum can bike got pressed into action. Had a blast.

Sir-Name, nice pics! Pretty windy down your way, I imagine? It was quite windy here.

I'm missing my commute. But If the creek don't rise tomorrow (which it just might after today's rain) I'll ride tomorrow.

Thanks, Jim. Yes, very windy, though things had calmed down a bit by the time I was out. Was nice to get out with one layer and a windbreaker. Much better than the rollers, as fun as they are - good luck getting out there soon. Sure beats last year.

I'm missing being able to commute even when the weather is good/safe.

It's a joy to ride, 58cm. Got out for a group ride in Napa on the Marinoni. Other than some heavy pollen, the riding weather has been perfect.

I took a quick 35 mile ride today on a loop of Manhattan from down the Hudson River then back up on the East River. The weather is finally nice again and the torrential rain yesterday washed away a good deal of the filth and salt. Here is a shot of the Queensboro Bridge looking northbound.

[MENTION=416226]Kdogbikes[/MENTION] Thank you. It is a very scenic city to ride in but you definitely need a heightened sense of awareness when riding.

Awesome. And to think I passed up the chance to move there when I was a college senior 15 years ago. I should have taken the plunge.

I got out for 52 miles this afternoon to check the flooding in the valley. We've had some heavy rains lately.

I rode through the wet area thinking it would only be a few inches deep, and ended up over the axles in water. Ended up riding the last 45 miles with wet feet.


The lake on the right is supposed to be Bobs corn field








i bumped into Drillium Dude out in Sultan at about the halfway mark of my ride. He had a neat Sparrow on his car

Spent most of the 70's riding around Okinawa, Japan. Always something new to see. Great place to grow up!

So cold and wintry all these pics.

How about some mid-70s sunshine from SE Texas! Evening ride on the Terry Hershey trail this week. Absolutely lovely outside; no long sleeves or base layers needed.

P.S. - the Tempo is proudly sporting one of [MENTION=201707]Henry III[/MENTION] 's custom tool rolls.

OK, now I'm hungry. Do you live right on the beach, or is that where the donut shop is? Great midwinter pics. Ditto [MENTION=193944]Roger M[/MENTION] and [MENTION=114373]northbend[/MENTION]. Our PNW weather has been wet but quite rideable lately. I need to try and get out more. I commuted down to work for the first time this year (not raining for once!) Hope that holds until 5:30 tonight!
