    Default 01-08 March ride report, start of National Reading Month











    Clear blue skies were too tempting, so I was able to log some rather nippy miles and pond #2 still has some ice on it, but the kids are done skating for the season.

    Just about missed the bike in the last frame. I was going to cry "foul"!

    Nice quiet, windy solo ride. Although I was told there was no gravel riding on this island, I found at least a mile of gravel. 18163B8D-3504-41FA-9FAF-67BF4E78D850.jpg

    Discovered yesterday evening that I have evidently spent too much time on the trainer this winter...

    Too much trainer

    And since spare trainer tires are not something I keep extras of, I was thrilled to wake to an “A” day so I could hop on the “NY A” bike and go out to Brooklyn and circle Prospect Park three times.

    On the way back stopped at my favorite bakery (RW if you read this...they are killer on bread and have a nice recipe book).

    Bien Cuit

    For Bob...

    Bread

    I had the best croissant I have ever had...

    Amande

    And made the 9 miles home at a rapid pace.
    If I knew what I was doing, Id be doing it right now

    Couple of fun rides for me with my son Wylie and then 2 days later my nephew Alex. I haven't seen nearly enough of Wylie since the start of covid, really great to have a day with him as he was passing through on a business trip. He's a mtb guy but rides an old 80s Centurion Pro 15 that I have for guests/friends to use when he's here, parts bin build.

    Wylie at Coal Oil Pt., nice day and even better to share it with him.


    Alex also at COP, then on a maintenance road on the way back. His parents live in SB, he visits them from San Diego about once a month, we ride when he's here (he has an 80s Nishiki International parts bin build I gave him for xmas), pretty new to cycling but he was a collegiate swimmer and is a 23yo cardio monster, I feel really good that I introduced him to cycling, especially since he likes riding a lot.

    I have ridden my bike outdoors 3 times this week for a total of 7 outdoor sorties In 2021 due to ice/snow/work/family. Redwing black birds are starting their calls.
    Spring is imminent in NJ!

    Lovely sunny day, went out without shoe covers or gloves and hit a bunch of the local climbs, after 40 minutes couldn't feel fingers and toes and was back home after 1.5 hours and 500m of climbing.

    I shouldn’t have read the water bottle before I headed out the door and into the wind this morning, as all that I could think about, when my nose wasn’t running that is, was what I was going to have for lunch.

    Looking forward to a big warm up next week.

    I really don't mind the cold, but the wind has been a bit extreme this past week.

    Heading out the door soon for a ride in the cold, but bright sunshine and no wind.

    8F here this morning with an inch of fresh powder, so we ski.
    If it really is 60F and sunny this week as advertised I will probably come back around to the bike.

    I keep forgetting where Hartwick NY is, so I google it and the first thing I see on Google Maps is "Larry's Custom Meats". Which for a custom handmade bike forum is perhaps appropriate?

    Single digit temperatures at night are keeping the base solid and the fields have firmed up enough one can wander wherever. I am loving this.

    That's funny, 'cause Larry got bought out about 5 years ago.
    We used to bring our pigs there for processing. Larry was a very humane and conscientious butcher.
    Then a fella amassed a ton of land and lots of beef cows outside of Richfield Springs and took Larry's over. He has been using it strictly for processing his own beef.
    Just a couple of months ago I heard they have opened back up to processing meat from others. I need to go see what the story is.

    Hartwick has 2 claims to fame: The original site of the Hartwick Seminary. (Hartwick College is actually in Oneonta).
    And we are about 5 miles from Cooperstown.
    But either way, that place hasn't been Larry's for quite a while.

    Cold nights and sunny, crisp days...spotted a few maple sap buckets out there and I bet that the sap is running pretty well.

    No photos, just hope today was my last below freezing ride until next winter.

    First ride up north, after a few days of snow melt.

    I blundered around for a while on Saturday and got lost (fancy a track change that I haven't ridden for at least 15 years). The wine from the night before probably didn't assist! No snakes on the ride, but my 8 year old spied a tiger snake that had freshly shed its skin and he was looking fairly shiny and new.
