Whoa.... heart rate
 
I haven't checked my heart rate in a few months.... so when someone at work asked me about it, I checked - twice - since I didn't believe the results the first time around.

My rate, in beats-per-minute, is just a tick under my age in years.

That's down from just two months ago when I was at 62 bpm resting. Every Sunday for the last several weeks, I've been going up & down South Mt on multiple climbs with Tuesday/Thursday early morning rides.

I guess I'm in pretty good shape and hopefully, that'll translate to a finish in the 600k/378.8 mile ride next Friday/Saturday in under 40 hours.

Good Luck that's a LOT of miles in 48 hrs.

Thanks. The limit is 40 hours and we aim to get a little sleep too.... if we don't get lost like we did on the last attempt.

I started looking at fatbikes a couple of years ago when I got my first 29er. I knew after reading and researching about fatbikes I had to get one for my next bike. I settled on the Pugsley for a few basic reasons, front and back wheel can be swapped (can be ran geared with back up single speed), steel frame, and cost. Yes I know the pugs is a snow/sand bike. I like eccentric bikes, and I live right on the central coast. In less than 5 minutes I can be on the beach. Here are some pictures from its first time out. Short ride up a sandy trail.

You're going to love it. Pugsley is probably the best all-rounder of the fat bike bunch.

I got mine for snow riding, but it's probably seen more miles since the snow melted than any of my other mountain bikes.

And rocking it out through a new pump track/dirt jump/flow trail just built in town gets me far more applause than somebody going that slow deserves. :D

I'm surprised I didn't see any pictures of Holland. Statistically there are more bicycles in Holland than there are people. A picture I snapped in Amsterdam:

SPOILER!!!
Don't read the captions if you're still watching the 2012 Giro!
I know I'm a little behind but I can go delete the last 16 stages now since I know who wins.
But some very cool shots.
