A big to the gentleman with the skate lid. Adapt and overcome!

Hey, k7. It looks like a group of your fellow crazies will be up in my neck of the woods this weekend.

One of the local Olde Phartes will be participating. Go Charlie! Funny thing is, he looks to be perfectly sane when you talk to him...

Whew! Saved by the kid. I was planning to do a hill ride, and had figured to add at least one more to the last loop I did. It wasn't till I was coming home I realized it was much hotter and humid than I thought it would be today. I knew I couldn't use that as an excuse to back out on the ride, so came home with the intentions of sucking it up and heading out half an hour ago. When I walked in the door, the wife told me she had to take our daughter somewhere at 6, so I have to take the boy to baseball practice at 5:30. Man, I'm heart broken I can't ride ride now.

Well, looks can be deceiving. I know a few people in this year's GRR - it should be an outstanding event.

Who remembers this line from a relatively famous cycling movie?

I used to run into the author of that while riding around Denver. A few time at Washington Park and once out by Chatfield.

woohoo

hot - check (feels like was 98) humid -check 69%

but after waiting three + weeks my new wheelset arrived. Swapped the cassette over and did a 25 mile shake down ride yesterday afternoon. No issues , wheels rolled very nicely ! Love having the sram cassette back in the mix, drivetrain is silent and shifting is crisp once again. Sorry no strava I am not a member.
