Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Another friend visited from LA, so we went on a ride.

He only brought a cross bike, so we hit some dirt and I got some #roadbikesoffroad



Then, we climbed Hamilton in triple digit weather. He's a beast for making it all the way up.

Depending on where you ride you have to go quite a ways to rack up big elevation numbers. Just depends.

Pretty flat over all. There aren't a lot of hills but there are some nasty short climbs.

@Mumonkan There are parts of the city that are fully reminiscent of "The Wire." There are full neighborhoods that are boarded up like that. It's quite sad, but this ride really shows you the city of Trenton (the good, bad and ugly).

Totally. I can ride through one of the richest towns in my area, then find myself rolling through farmland and eventually the poorest areas. It's sort of weird.

This park in downtown Coeur d' Alene has some great water features for the kids. If they had stuff like that when I was a kid, I would never have left the park.

North Idaho Centennial Trail where it passes through Riverstone park. It was 96f in da shade yesterday. I drank two liters on a 1.5 hour ride.



The guy (gal?) on the left was tripping out on my bike. He kept sniffing the tires and spokes.

@Wspsux I live just outside of Philly in South Jersey. I'm originally from Bordentown (which is five minutes from Trenton).

102 f yesterday.





The trail turns right where it leaves the pic and then climbs to the height of that bridge in a very short distance. I made it up without stopping but had to hit the shade at the top.
