Fewer critter issues I guess too.

You and I have the same dream! Wife also aware and approving here!

The Baltimore Bike Party was last night. Always an interesting time. This month's theme was 'Superheroes & Supervillains'.

Of course, there's always that guy...



Some interesting people



And interesting bikes.



The best part was when they got lost. 1500 cyclists lost in Federal Hill in Baltimore.

Today's shenannigans:




I hadn't ridden since Monday and have fighting a bit of a cold. I felt it. I had intended to ride all of May's century route, but didn't have enough left to attempt the final loop and its extra 2000' of climbing.

Next weekend is a road trip up to Medford for The Rouge Flahute.

Electric bikes, anyone?

Hi everyone,
I'm initially here on ADV due to my Suzuki DR350SE thumper, but I thought there might be some interest in the two electric bicycles that I have built from scratch in the last year or so.

Hopefully two photos will appear here:



I've also written detailed accounts of both builds on these two webpages:

Let me know what you think!

Mountain biking & road riding

It's been ages since I got my road bike out, but the extra hour of sunlight gives me just enough time to head out to a nearby paved trail after work. That's what I did last night. I was sure that my ability to sustain high speeds over long periods would have suffered from months of doing nothing but mountain biking on relatively short trails. To my complete amazement, I beat my previous Strava record and earned two PR's on the fastest segments. My speed on the final uphill climb jumped from 17mph to 20mph. Usually I'm exhausted by the time I reach the halfway point, and have to rest a few minutes before turning around and heading back, but this time I felt like I had plenty of energy in reserve. Next time I'm going to make myself a bit lighter by ditching that 2lb water bottle and see if I can advance to the first page of the Strava leader board.

Improving my road skills is kinda why I wanna get a little dirty. Well, that and an excuse to get another bike.

Mtn biking helps develop power and bike handling skills.

Road riding helps develop fitness.

Doing both makes you a better cyclist all around.

I made it through a few pages of that pedantic, holier-than-thou drivel and agree with your comment there. He's young, dumb and full of cum. Let it go already. If there's one thing the cycling community excels at, it's pissing and moaning about inconsequential B.S.
