Trail run last nite. Bout an hour (but I haven't looked at the data) with a co-worker.



I may/may not get to go to the Wed ride. Depends on whether this snow keeps coming down.

Last week: 60s and maybe 70s. This week: snow and 30s. Spring can't spring fast enough.

Oh I feel sorry for you. -13F right now. The last time we saw 35F was in November. The last cross race of the season, the first week of December was 0F at race start. The biathlon this weekend is supposed to be 10F at race start. It's been a cold winter.

Early in my career, I worked in Gary, IN, Detroit and even the Netherlands in the winter so there's a reason why I live in the desert now.

We're expecting our first rain this weekend - first rain since Dec. 21 - but it's a beautiful day here:

Yep same here, although the past couple of days it has topped out in the mid 50's. This is the first real winter we have had since moving here in 2005. Usually we get British levels of day long rain during December/January. This winter it was extreme (for here)cold and 2 snows.

Wet Bike:

Yes, I have a wet bike: Fenders, lights, wet wheels and tires. If somehow it dries out enough I have a set of dry wheels for dirty days.

I ride in the wet a lot, more than most I'd guess, there's over 10 feet of rain in this town a year and last year I rode just under 6000 miles.

I'm really looking forward to riding my dry bike again some day..

send help

Anybody else have a specific wet bike?

I hear ya. I live in Olympia WA, so the wet bike is THE bike: Kona Dr. Good with a few modes, bars, tires, light, and ,of course, a milk crate zip tied to a rear luggage rack. Might sound homely, but it hauls a fair amount of groceries. Hauling groceries was its purpose in life when I bought it.

What I really need now is better rain gear. Any suggestions?

Actually, the only other bike I have is a Sun Spider fat tire with apehangers for goofing around. Yeah, I know, but it's fun to cruise around on when Ms. Iron and I go out for a ride. It's probably an artifact of my fondness for Schwinn Stingrays.

My rain bike is my oldest road racing bike- a seven year old chinese carbon frame with ultegra and DA left over from another bike. Strap-on fenders, left over wheels, and my oldest power meter- a powertap that's been rebuilt into its sixth wheel. Hasn't gotten as much use as normal as we're in a drought here in California but I did ride it in the rain this morning.
