Glad to hear you didn't take a more brutal whack, dude.

What, you're saying it wasn't in rideable condition? Looks like wheels are still round, and attached... probably has some steering angle... put Baldy on there, and he would ride it over to HMB and back

I rode 34 miles today which brings the mileage since last Tuesday to about 150. Finally got road pedals installed and matching shoes. Also, got a couple of paris of LG shorts.

Holy Cow! What a difference! The road pedals add quite a bit to the efficiency...I should not have expected different.

The quality shorts were as big of a difference! I never thought that *edit* quality bicycle shorts would be so comfortable! And I got the LG "Aerotex" and the shorts were hardly wet at the end of the ride (17mph average) in 94 degree/80% humidity.

I wish that I'd gotten the road pedals, shoes and quality shorts a year ago.

I'm gonna do a Century in September (not quite up to the Baldy Standard!)...Bikes, I could get in this.

Here are the bikes in my garage for the people staying in my house/yard for RAGBRAI



A bad picture from this morning, because I was busy with music and other crap, so I didn't get many good bicycle pictures. I hope Kurt gets some while riding.

Cool Pictures. My brother and his daughter are the only ones to make it from our little group. I may get on my bicycle by next weekend. I was trying this weekend, but never got far enough ahead on work, work so I could.

This makes twice I've managed to miss this thing.

There will be a new team next year from our family. Right now it will be six riders, but we may have more.

I hope Kurt gets his Team Kiss picture posted later.
