First ride in a long time, and post biff.

My left shoulder blade muscle and trap hurts, my heart ached, but I was pulling good 18mph for 10 miles and 15 mph on the way back on a more leisurely pace.

Yeah ... bicycling is good.

Seems to be down right now, but that crazy guy rode around the world on an authentic old penny farthing bike.

Rode Dinsaur Ridge again today. Wasn't feelin it. Legs = no bueno after a few weeks of no consistent riding.

Took it easy-ish 'cause I was tryin to come up with a way to talk to the mgr at PBS that insists on scheduling me on days when I cannot physically work (ie: 1000-1700) after working all nite the nite before, scheduling me on days when I'm gonna be out of town, etc. :bluduh Called at 1900-ish and 'she was with a customer, she'll call you back...' Yeah. Right. (what part about I get up at 1600, eat brekky, etc. don't you get beyotch?! :baldy)

Methinks my time at the bike shop is about over. :nod

Oh, and then I switched most of the XTR stuff for Dura Ace on the Crosshairs pending the Access frame build-up. ALMOST won an XTR shifter/derailleur combo on ebay, but got outbid by $10 with 20sec to go. :bluduh Didn't want to go higher than I bid, so off it went to someone else's house. :cry

Can you tell me the difference in the actual size of the Coker bike compared to an original? Is the 36" front tire anywhere close to the size of the bikes that were the original big wheels?

I like any trail that has Ridge in the name. Did a quick ride last night on the imaginatively named "Ridge Trail". Not too hot (finally) and a little breeze. Very nice.

I rode to work for the first time in 3 weeks. It wasn't 80degF by 8am. :clap

Snow predicted for tonight. :wings

Sadly, not enough to replace biking with skiing just yet. Give it a few more weeks. :lol3

Anyway, my cross country ski stuff does just fine keeping the top half of me warrm.

And when I don my crazy concoction of gym shorts, long underwear and maybe snow pants, the bottom half is fine too, but not all that comfortable in the saddle....

Any suggestions on keeping the legs warm without giving up the comfort of bike shorts? I'd like something that's kind of wind proof maybe. A single layer of lycra might get kind of chilly, I'd think. :ear

Snow!? You poor sod.

The wife has all manner of knee warmer/leg warmer things that she wears when it gets cold around here (that's under 60F thank you.) We rarely ride when the weather drops below 50F, so you are on your own for freezing recomendations.
