Wow Steve I would not have enjoyed that.

Me and the whole family spent yesterdayout on the multi-use trail, stopping at different parks. Did 15 miles with the family and another 10 for me since I only have 1 bike rack right now and had to ride from the house. Kids love the bike trailer. Marina is learning to ride and crashed 3 times. Once she went into the bushes and cut her hand. I gave her gloves today and we will get a helmet next time we hit wally world.

I had a flat on the way to the gym this morning, had used my spare tube and was going to get one after the gym but ended up patching it in front of the bike shop while I waited for them to open and then bought 2. Just ordered some tire liner strips. This was a metal thumb tack this morning so maybe nothing could stop that. My next tires with be puncture resistant Specialized Fast Track Aradillo Elites. Will see how I like the tire liners in the mean time. I bought the Mr. Tuffy's.

Hello all; I have some vacation time that I need to use or lose next week, didn't know if any of you ride during the week, or may work my way up to the Buffalo, MO area to see my 87 yr old aunt, if any one has any suggestions...

There is a ride here in LRK this weekend that I think you might be interested in, Bike and Hike, 20 mile road bike on the River Trail to Pinnacle, hike up and over the mountain then back along the base trail, then 20 miles back to NLR, a benefit for ALS research.

Kind of shook me up a little. I couldn't seem to get my riding legs back under me for a while after that. I rode like a squid off of the back side.

Looks like you're having a ball. Good for you!
