Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Love it. It's a little more aggressive than the bike it replaced but I got used to it pretty quick. To me the frame feels pretty stiff and responsive. I didn't think I would be able to feel much of a difference in the ride but the titanium is really smooth.

86 Serotta Nova out near Lake Lavon after major rains recent filled it back up.


Kirk Frameworks - Apartment building pond during a short break during today's ride. Damned head winds.

I took my first ride ever today, and I can't live without a coastline so here goes. It's Örsundsbron in Malmö, Sweden. I rode 41.2 km. I never thought I could make that for the first time. I felt contractions in my right thigh in the end. But the last kilometer it went away. I love this!
