Temperature was a little disappointing, but the sun was out, so mrs non-fixie and I decided to put on some mittens and go for a leisurely Sunday twenty-miler.

Finally! A quick 30 while the day was dry. Left the phone and camera behind and just enjoyed a slow-speed wamble along the SRT. It's been at least 2 weeks and I'd been jonesing for a ride because all I've been doing the past couple weeks has been bike preparation (winter maintenance and prepping a couple tubular wheelsets for use). Now, I like to tinker with the bikes - but I like to ride them even more

Took the Medici on its first ride since swapping out the entire bar/stem and putting everything back together. Perfect, as always!

Another quick 30 since today was 56 degrees, dry and sunny. Got some pics this time, too.

Took the Medici today:

That sticker has been there for over 2 years now. Here's a close-up which shows even the bib number manufacturer's phone number is still legible:

Took the Miyata down Lake Wa Blvd to Seward Park. Wore a short sleeve jersey. Just a beautiful, 55° day.

I've always been slow on this bike. Well, slower than normal anyways and could never really figure out why.

I decided to run it "naked" without the big front bag and holy moly what a difference! Tonight I was about 1.5mph faster than I usually am on this bike and this route. Wild.

Also, the red wing blackbirds have begun showing up

Riding a comfort bike today.

Twisty downhill from near the doorstep^^, to the brake check on the steep straight drop \/ \/.

Muddied corral on left, barn/house, flooded fields. Been wet a lot lately.


Past Tiger Mt. Paragliding’s landing zone. Active.



around the town


Candy shop Open.

XXX Root Beer. - Old fashioned 50s diner


Darigold dairy on Main Street - receiving milk. Must be creamy&chocolately.
Then a final good thought before climbing the hill home

Rode the Medici down to Fremont and Wright Bros. Cycles to pick up Velox tape to do the bars on the Alpina. On the return trip I took a detour through the Union Bay Natural Area:







Once home I wrapped the bars and reinstalled the brakes. After a quick tweak of the brakes I was off for Redmond and a fast 20 mile test ride of the Alpina - newly-taped tubulars and all:

Some nice nice riding weather yesterday for the first time in a month or so. Got to ride over to Thompson park and do a good part of the hack trail.

First ride in the Basso Gap for 7 miles getting home. Short top tube has the same feel as my Tommasini but this one is lighter and has a bit more zip.

This is the green time of year here in coastal Marin. The cows are fat and happy on all the new grass. I'm pretty happy myself, enjoying the great ride of the Bruce Gordon.

Sunny blue skies and longer days bring thoughts of spring but dang it’s still chilly out there! High 40’s temps but a stiff icy wind made it feel colder. Got in 28 miles, stoping at the grocery store on the way home. Picked up some dropout adjusters from the LBS on the outbound leg, so pretty productive ride! For a change, here’s a pic without a wooden fence.

Got one last 30-mile check ride in before the rains come this evening. When I took this photo at Marymoor Park I didn't know if I was gonna get home dry or not:



Last night I substituted Campy grey housings for the CLB alloy ones; braking now has a much better feel. Tubs now inflated to 105psi and a little squishy but the ride is still fast. Probably just going to take some time to get used to the feel.
