I rode yesterday for the 1st time in a month,it wasn't bad. pedaling that 35# Surley around is alot different from the Cannondale ,but it's sooo much mo comfy.

Just got in from 2-ish hours and 32mi of riding in grey, cool weather. I underdressed by about half a layer.

Still good times. Coupla buddies and I went out for a cruise. Not too hard. Not too easy. No sprints or other hooliganism which is odd for a guy's ride.

Must be getting old.

Even if the video title hadn't said 'Chile', I would have immediately guessed South America.

I'm pretty sure that scared me real close to stupid.

I lost count after about six yikes! moments.

What is the deal with POV cams, that they are always pointed just a bit too far down?

And the Dog!

Idiots running under the jumps aren't enough, there has to be a dog?

Finally installed my egg beaters on my bike today, after almost 4 months in the box and tried em with the shoes I bought.


Clicking in will take some getting used to. I have no idea where the cleat is under the shoe. I just end up riding un clipped till I sorta slip in..

Getting some hot spots in my feet. Short ride (3 miles) so I can't definitively say where. But the recent rise in gas prices has prompted me to ride more.

It was high 70s/ low 80s today...

Having Egg Beaters and Candys, I definitely prefer the Candys. They're a lot easier to click into.

I had eggbeaters on my last MTN bike, hated em, too tiny underfoot, no support, no partial out on slippery descents.

Just picked a set of Shimano PD M985s for the coming new Mtn bike simply because they have some teeth around the cleat mech.

I even tried eggs on my road bike for a spell but still felt they created a hot spot in the center of the ball of my foot. You would think the hard sole of a bike shoe would make up for it but it didn't. So i went back to Look Keos on the road bikes.

Is the rider wearing a pinstripe suit?

Anyone notice he started giggling at 2:31. It's like the realization of insanity finally sunk in. Awesome.
