And did I mention, I was all by myself?

Bach'in it till next Weds. Yikes! Gonna miss the Mrs. and crew as they are heading towards Texas. Whats a fella to do? Hmmm. Maybe ride my bike ALOT. Get some more trail work done on the south side? Take a long overnight ride and check out WSR in Marblerock to help w/ the trail system? Go to the humane society and get me another pooch for Buster to play with? (like 3 isn't enough) Get some work done around the house? Work on bikes? We'll see what happens.........

Slow and Low, that is the Tempo

SS'ed it to work, going to have to put on a taller cog. Very foggy. It's quite amazing how the fog makes everything easier. You'll never see the crest of a hill, only know that you've made it. One minute you're watching condensation drip off of your helmet, and the next minute you're at your destination. Good Ride.

Wildlife proliferation project. Caught in Hampton, relocated to Sportsman's Park in Clarksville. Had planned on having Doty fillet him up but eldest son had other ideas.

New phone- I was well overdue, now I have no excuse for being unorganized and unreachable.

Dirty Blue Box, Super Saul, Dillinger and Mama
Cuz, Super, and GT

My favorite bike of the day- Soul Cycles Dillinger

Love the bars, quick steer, and fun to ride OS Black Buck

SE Stout being neglected, needs a lighter fork.
Time to head back to Beeds Lake in Hampton- Awesome camp ground, great fishing, and neat dam.

Cuz called for a ride

May have the pleasure of Guitar Ted's company as well. 7 bells in the AM. Break in the South Side!

Dyno's and Bend

Misty morning commute with a brief run through Cedar Bend. Not sure what it is with this place but it's just what I need to start my Friday.

Last night I had a little time to build up my eldest sons GT Dyno- Fun semi-old school bike. Landing gear forks, Odyssey 41Thermal cranks w/ primo pedals, Snafu OS bars with Primal grips, FX lever, Hoffman seat and post, Specialized stem, chainring, hubs and hoops, Holy roller in front, Primo The Wall rear tire.

Have a great Weekend!

Hard to get into this getting up early again for the commute. Saves about 8 dollars each day I ride AND it's fun and put's my head in the right place. No brainer.
Didn't even hear the alarm....
Rode w/ the Mrs. to Shell Rock last night on the SS 29er. Ended up with about 50 miles for the day. Not too bad of a start.

Prophetic Commute

Pleasant 14 mile gravel commute this AM, nice to be back on the bike. Looking forward to enjoying mother and shedding some pounds.
