    I concur, Fallsburg next to the pizza shop, before the old school building.

    Drove past that for a year going to work in New Concord.


    Edit, I guess you were posting at the same time as me.

    Depends on the ride. On road 100 miles doesn't usually last over 2 hours. Off road 100 miles can be an all day experience. :D

    Hey, you had the first road right and had it quick. :deal



    I'm not a very active bicyclists anymore but when I was doing 100 miles a week it was just like how I ride motorcycles. I take it serious and road etiquette is #2 only after safety. So these bicyclist acting the way they did but a thorn up my ass because by ignoring traffic around them they endanger me and themselves. Might as well be dogs in the road. :lol3 (Sorry Craig)

    But who suggested we rename the road to the closed road sleeping dog lane? :lol3 I thing we passed at least 6 dogs laying in the road.

    One of you had a relative that had difficulty riding due to joint pain in or around the elbows? Send me a PM or Email and let me know what it was he/she did to ease the pain, it would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks,

    Michael

    Now be nice, you two were doing better for a second there. :D

    PS Scott, I think you would have really enjoyed todays ride. Might have tested your gravel riding skills but the broken pavement sections and twisties would have been fun on the GS.:wink:

    Trying to determine if I even know the difference anymore if I ever did.

    Bicycles; the people on Three Locks are training for TOSRV, it's mothers day weekend. For many of them it's their only real road ride all year and they are used to having the entire route to themselves. For me, single file, about 2 feet off the white edge line, hold my line and hold my lane. If you get over too far to the right, people get the idea they can pass you even if there is an oncoming car. If they have to slow down for a second, it's just too bad. That's assuming they even see you of course. If they don't see you, it doesn't matter where you are.

    Elbows; both elbows sore?

    Snob Alert.

    This would explain extreme variety of equipment quality and safety gear these people were wearing. Some looked they had just ridden out of the KOA campground.

    Alert over.

    That Strom was worried that we were trying to plot a route through that and was trying to get away.

    It had a right to worry. :D

    OK, I'll admit I suffer from the "that guy never rides" or "his bikes are too clean" syndrome.

    My favorite rider was about the fifth person we passed. He was an old guy wearing a fishing cap riding an ancient, rusty, upright 3-speed pedaling twice as fast as the "posers" in lycra shorts and on carbon framed bikes. That dude was awesome. -Mike

    Luke- thanks again for leading the ride. That route around pike and bainbridge was especially nice since it was new to me. Makes me want to get out an explore a bit south of there.-Mike

    My neighbor has been turkey hunting in my woods for the past 10 days or so.

    Last week he had a few vistors.

    These little guys were not afraid of him at all. He sat there and watched them play for hours. He noticed they kept pouncing on something....upon checking it out the were playing with a large snapping turtle that had crawled out of the creek to lay eggs up on the hill side.

    Where can I find some shallow puddles to ride through? My GS is so clean, it just doesn't look right.
    Also, how can i get my riding gear to look faded? :ear

    Go to Lowes, purchase an empty 5 gallon bucket ($2.99) and bag of top soil ($1.19). Next to the checkout is a cooler with bottled water, you'll need several (5x $1.29). If you go to the masonry department, you should be able to find some gloves that come most of the way up your arm ($9.99).

    Now, this is where it gets a little messy, so you may want to trailer your bike to an off-site property, as to avoid dirtying up your garage/driveway....
