you look great. Its amazing what a few miles will do for you. Especially us old guys. Keep posting those pictures. Gives everbody a reason to ride more and also push away from the dinner table.

Which Brickwell is that?

I was on the north shore last week, without a bicycle and without time to ride, but I was wondering about rental availability, cycling routes, etc. My recollection of the area is that there aren't a lot of quiet roads with good shoulders, but clearly you are finding good places to ride...

Top is Manhasset, bottom is Farmingdale.

I'm on the south shore so its a 7 mile ride to get tot he good roads north of Hempstead Turnpike. I regularly pass the Brickwell Syosset and Farmingdale stores. Cold water and a clean bathroom make them great pit stops.

Not switching... Don't like the Madone 9, too heavy.
