Awesome on your rides. When I first started riding my Giant sedona some 9 years ago I thought I was killing going 5 miles! Last Year I finally completed my first century ride on that same sedona! Enjoy the ride and keep the gearing low on that knee.
Godspeed!

Another daffodil ride. Took a picture this time. Testing out a WTB loaner saddle from the LBS. Feels great! Matches the flowers

To a small waterfall about 22km away from my house. Mostly MUP with some road, dirt road and singletrack mixed in.

This isn't bad. The temps might have been cold, but the view is nice. Would make a nice profile pic

Thanks Duewest. Soon there will be boats out there and that patch of dirt will be all wild flowers. I'm sure I'll be there again many times and will update picture.

I did a 27 miler yesterday on my old '74 Motobecane Grand Touring restoration project, but today was just a nice easy 7 mile spin on the '13 Fuji Absolute 2.1 hybrid. I met up with a buddy of mine that just picked up his first hybrid bike a couple of days ago ('18 Fuji Absolute 2.3) and did a ride on a local greenbelt. It worked out the stiffness on my 50 yr old body I had from yesterday's ride. Here's a shot from yesterday, and the Fuji from today.

Cheers!

This is my ride from 3/3, I moved it from the "What Have You Done For Your Hybrid" thread over to this one because for some reason I get these two threads mixed up in my head on Saturday night LOL.

No one should ever say you can’t do big miles on a Surly 50 pound bike.

BEER & TACOS “85”

The breweries in Dunedin are very popular with the local cyclists.

South Rim Ride

I got to go back up to the South Rim for work this week and was able to sneak a couple rides in, both along the Hermit Road and Trail. Was about 8 miles in on the second ride and popped a spoke on the back wheel (sprocket side), made it back OK though. I now have an excuse to take the dork disc off... Can't wait to get back up there! Absolutely one of the most awesome places in the world.

I've been using my road bike for long rides but took the Marin into San Antonio today and did over 5 hours of riding from Brackenridge Park to the end of the Mission Trail and down a new connected greenway.
The ride might have also involved 4 or 5 stops for beer.

@jimmie65 ~what is that silver bottle on your bike? It looks like a thermal deal with a special holder. Interesting.

The bottle is a Yeti Rambler. I poured most of a Route 44 limeade into it at 2:30 and still had ice in it on the way home 5 hours later despite the sun and 85 degree weather.
The holder is a Blackburn Outpost rack. Holds the Rambler or a stainless steel growler perfectly. For more boring applications, it will also hold a sleeping bag or dry bag.

Saturday - 4 missions and a lot of bluebonnets. Wanted to hit the 5th mission (the Alamo) but the 30+ mph winds wore me out and I bailed.

Nice ride you did there.


Can you tell me more about your handlebar setup please, and provide more pics of your bar ends or bull horns or whatever they are in the middle of your handlebars.
