Depending on what kind of rim it was and how bad a shape it was in, it might be repairable, if you still have it. Give me a clue about rim and hub, and then bring it over to Waltham some time and I'll replace whatever spokes it needs and re-true it! Finding the right spokes might take a trip or two to Harris or Belmont Wheelworks, but fixing it back up might not take more than an hour or so.

Took the Rawland for 20 miles on the Minuteman in the late afternoon today, mid-40s at the start, high 30s by the end, clear skies, dazzling sunlight, sharply-defined shadows, and stroboscopic flashes on the eyelids coming and going.

Spun up to Lexington Center and back on the Nordavinden, 10 quick miles to keep the moving parts moving. Thought I had my first Eliptigo sighting of Spring, but it turned out to be a Street Strider, a tricycle knock-off (as seen on TV). It didn't seen to be blocking traffic, in any event.

Back on March 6, I posted to the Metro Boston thread:

I think there are two groups here, retired vs still working, and there might be a difference here due to our time constraints.…

And to a lesser extent, family activities…

I have the opportunity to commute a minimal 14 miles one-way during the week (Commuter Rail home), and round-trip on Saturday all year-round, for about 100 miles a week. During the nice weather, I’d like to put in about 150-200 miles to train and do long rides.

In reality though, I probably get in about 20-30 miles per week during the winter, and maybe about 75-100 during the nice weather (to include early evening rides).

Two of my co-workers are on an opposing team. Results will be posted weekly [...TRASH TALK... ].

That may be just what I need to “win this one for the Gipper.”

For my amusement I’m thinking about posting my weekly results on this thread. I figure public pride (or humiliation) here is an additional motivator.

So we’re now into Week 3 and here are my results week by week. The participants choose each particular individual activity from a drop-down list of 27 activities (my strong suit is “cycling outside”) then intensity (light, moderate, and vigorous), and duration in five minute intervals. An algorithm converts this data into “steps,” and equivalent “miles” (Activity Miles), as well as corresponding Bunker Hill Monument climbs and Boston Marathons.

For my intensity on my rides I use Relative Perceived Exertion. I warm up for 6 miles at an RPE 50% (moderate), and the rest of the ride is at 60% RPE, with a few 2 minute 70% intervals on hills (vigorous).

Week 0 was a typical winter schedule. Week 1 I was trying to adjust my work/ride schedule to accommodate more riding, and between Weeks 2 and 3, I took a few vacation days, to include two full traveling days without cycling. This week, I plan to start my 10-week century training schedule. The Moderator was not available, so no results were posted after Week 2.

I have listed my Cycling Miles for the week, the cumulative “Activity Miles,” My current standing for the week out of the 40 participants, and the cumulative Activity Miles of the First and Tenth Places.

Week 0 / Cycling Miles = 28 / cumulative Activity Miles = NA / My Standing = NA / 1st to 10th Place cumulative Activity Miles =NA

Week 1 / Cycling Miles = 59 / cumulative.Activity Miles = 14.31 / My Standing = 25 / 1st to 10th Place cumulative Activity Miles = 114.52 to 25.85

Week 2 / Cycling Miles = 58 / Activity Miles = – / My Standing = – / 1st to 10th Place Activity Miles = –

Week 3 / Cycling Miles = 56 / cumulative Activity Miles = 120.77 / My Standing = 5 / 1st to 10th Place cumulative Activity Miles = 347.23 to 90.85

I confess I'm not "into" tracking mileage or posting anything other than anecdotally. But I will say that yesterday's ride home was exciting! Couldn't go very fast! Saw the bike drift sideways about a foot once on a level flat section of shoulder. Great fun!

Hi jmm,

I am quite "into" tracking mileage and other data, and I have occasionally posted to threads disdaining computers,

It's like a fisherman complaining about the sea, all part of the cost of doing business IMO.

Beats whacking a ball with a stick or sitting in traffic on the interstate.
My scariest gusty windy ride was on a highway near the rim of the Grand Canyon.

10 miles on the Minuteman tonight, temperatures in the 60s, balmy air, some gentle April showers with distant, silent lightning to the North, gently rowdy troops of teenage boys, and, separately, teenage girls, out taking the Spring air. The AHS stadium lights illuminated the gray, bare limbs of some low trees, evoking smoke, or an old man's beard.

Unfortunately it's in recycling already. It seemed to be in pretty bad shape.

Picking up on a few threads above.

1.) Wind. I'd been told, but don't know for sure, that the Dutch have an adage "Whichever way you ride, the wind is always in your face." Seems that way anyway. I have a few 'gust-spots' on my commute that I have to pay attention to - depends on the wind direction.

2.) Bike lanes/barricades etc. I was just in London on business and noticed that some streets have extremely good bike lanes - they have a little island separating them from the rest of traffic. These were heavily used during rush hour. I realize that Boston-area roads are narrow, but this really impressed me - London roads aren't exactly spacious.

3.) Tracking miles etc. I personally don't do this, but one of my buddies does this as a matter of habit. He mostly kayaks and hikes, while I bike/run/kayak/hike. At any given moment he can tell me that he's logged XXX miles since the start of the year. I don't have a clue - I could take a guess, but really don't know. Nothing for or against it - if it's a motivator, definitely go for it.

Making the most of a break in the weather in the late afternoon, I took the Rawland for a 20-mile ride out to Depot Park and back, temperatures in the 40s, sunny, bright, and freshly-washed to start, but clouds closing in and a plum-colored sunset that faded to slate gray. I was pursued by rain showers for the last five miles of the ride, arriving damp--but not grievously so--and happy.














April is here, and the Freight House is open (the bogs, too).


Was that a rain drop? Yup...

Did the 100k NER ride to Sterling today. Started just above freezing, finished mid 40s, some sunny bits among the clouds. At least the wind held off. Really nice to get out and see so many other riders...

Me too. Great day for a ride, and a nice large crowd showed up. I showed up way undertrained (long story) but had fun anyway, and had a much more social ride than I usually do.

Edit: Oh, actually -- I think we rode together for a lot of the ride. Were you the one identifying birds?

I got out for 48.7 miles on the Grandis today, a cool but otherwise lovely day for a ride. Would have been even nicer without the headwind in every direction though.

Primeval forest and primordial soup:



The western end of the Minuteman now has a new helpful feature for cyclists, a fixit stand with pump and tools:

This season is starting slowly for me, for various reasons. Managed to get a quick, chilly 10 miles in on the Minuteman at the end of the day. The Rawland floated lightly along, as usual.

Well, I must say, today's commute sure offered some diversity. I got slightly wet this morning but not uncomfortably so. The ride home was mostly sunny, dry, and VERY WINDYYYYYYY. In your face, Aeolus! Actually, it was in his face. Directly in his face.

Took the Rawland on a little 10-mile mental health ride on the Minuteman after work, all the clouds blown away by the breeze that blew gently up my nose on the outbound segment (this was more pleasant than it sounds).


Ra! Ra! Ra!




Had another StreetStrider sighting (elliptical machine mounted on a tadpole tricycle; ), got a photo this time.




Peaceful ride.

What day is today? Oh yeah, Friday. I rode the Grandis to work today. Yesterday I rode the Motobecane and I'm starting to feel the difference between a 5-spd and a 6-spd FW .

Has anyone else noticed the incredible traffic angst this week? Even on the days I've left the house 10 minutes earlier than normal I've experienced very heavy traffic, and all of the drivers seemed intent on making as much noise as possible. The returns home haven't been much better, until yesterday afternoon and this morning. Maybe everybody was trying to get a whole week's worth of work done before heading off for a Patriots Day extended weekend starting Thursday noon.

Put the LHT back on the road for the first time since December. Why it took so long is a story for another time, but a few changes have been made, including a wide set of Nitto Noodles (replacing the stock Maes bars), SKS Longboard fenders (replacing the old Planet Bike Full Hybrids), and a pair of Paul's Gino light mounts on the mid-fork braze-ons. What hasn't changed are the long chain stays, stable geometry, and supple 38¨ Compass Barlow Pass tires. And, of course, there's the general friskiness of a newly-serviced drive train. After some fiddling with this and that gadget that needed to be reattached, I took it out for a brief ride up to Lexington Center in a delicate sunset, back in the dark.

Took the newly-refurbished LHT on a 32-mile shake-down ride, the variant of the North Bridge loop taking the Reformatory Branch outbound (for a little dirt), and Monument Road and River Street on the return (for some rolling hills), with the Minuteman coming and going (for dodging randomly-moving walkers/runners/cyclists/skaters). Patriot's Day weekend and a route through Lexington and Concord combined to evoke some military resonances over the course of the ride. For example, the US Army Old Guard discharged a cannon on the Battle Green on the way out...


Rolled out Reformatory Branch, and made a quick detour at the Hartwell Road crossing to Chip-in Farm, where I managed to grab a light lunch and enjoy the ambience.


Back on the Reformatory Branch, I admired this striking patch of fragrant skunk cabbage... ah, sweet Spring!


The Reformatory Branch was pleasant, with trees budding but not yet leafed.


At the North Bridge, encountered participants in Tough Ruck 2016, arriving at the finish line on the grounds of the neighboring Old Manse.


Paused at the top of the highest Monument Street hill to admire the scenery.


A little farther along, near the Carlisle border, pondered the memorial stone to Jonas Brown (BLEEDING HE CHASED THE ENEMY NINE MILES).


Back across the Concord River, in Lexington, a large reenactment of a pitched battle was underway at Tower Park, drawing crowds on the bike path.

I think it's the marathon madness; lot of Bostonians getting peeved with out of towners who don't know the intricacies of our roads or road culture. At least, that's what I'm seeing in the city.

Does anyone tall (6'+) want a Raleigh Record circa 1970 as a restoration project??? If not, any good ideas as to where to donate it?

It was converted to a single speed so no downtube shifters or derailleurs but gears still on there; then clearly sat out for a while, leather seat is toast (sad sight), chain is rusted, rims are duct taped inside rather than rim tape or velox. Would love for it to be revived by someone who could use it; if that's no one here I'll look into bike co-ops before resorting to the 'free' section of craigslist. Thanks for reading!

Anyone riding the marathon tonight?
