    Only 18 miles today, about 8 of those on dirt, gravel, and abandoned pavement. Headed out later than I planned and the heat made me decide to cut things short. Still, it was enough to convince me that this bike is just too small for me. It, as a whole bike or the frame & fork, may be listed in the classifieds soon.

    Did a kind of race, 340km , 4500m of climbing between Saguenay and Charlevoix and back to Saguenay in 12h57min. I took a few pictures and to my surprise I finished first.

    The wifey and I made a last minute decision to go look for the Painted Hills bike. She went by car and I went by bike. We didn't get it, so I had to settle for this crappy early morning ride...what a bummer.

    Got out with some solid dudes in the New Paltz area. Hit a few big climbs, suffered in the heat, ground some gravel (typing that makes me feel icky), enjoyed each other's company. Ben and I both scored some sweet demo wheels for the day and now I think I might have to find some deep carbon wheels to keep at home permanently.

    Commuted every day, but no weekend ride this week.
    Such is life these days.
    My child nor my dog give two shits as to how aero my wheels are.
    No complaints.

    Dear Lionel,

    Can your brother-in-law do the Kessel Run on it in under 12 parsecs?

    Rode in the morning with friends. Not feeling any snap in me today, tomorrow will definitely be a rest day.


    Going classic with 26" and V-Brakes; his other bike was in the shop.




    I spent 3 hours weed whacking my yard, then my other yard... So I went to clear my head with a little after dinner walk. I saw more moose, always a good thing.

    I actually have met Lionel's brother in law. And I am very confident when I say he is much cooler than Lionel even though I couldn't understand a word he said. :)

    Casual Sunday along the Seattle shorelines; 5 hours of enjoying the sun and watching others play in and around Puget Sound. Urban as hell here but the water makes it special.

    Joe, when you shoot these moose how close are you? Ever come face to face with some big bad animal whilst on the trail? Do you ride with a bell on or carry bear spray? Too cool, man.

    Have not yet figured how to do the Apple-to-Google/Picasa-to-VeeSalon handshake without going to my PC. If I stay in the Apple world it's not visible. Mebbe I should check the wiki to see how others are doing it.

    We might need the rides comment/questions thread but I'll try this.

    Indeed! Same here but the cloud of hungry, spandex-chewing deerflies and the pace from a Type-A riding buddy kept me from photographing the variety. I'll try to fix that soon.

    The cyclist's golden ratio is 100:1 (feet of vertical per mile), you're in the bonus!

    Ack, is that an Emerald Ash Borer? Love the turtle, we don't get that one around here (except as a pet).


    Lionel, kudos to your brother on the socks. Rolling down is tres old school, brings me back to the early days.

    And thanks to Joost, Jussi, Joe, and Paul for helping me fall in love every Monday morning.

    Cheers, Tee Aitch.

    I've done MTB rides in the mtn's with significantly more climbing, like ORAMM, which has (depending on who's GPS info you trust) somewhere between 10,000-11,000ft in 65 miles...that's 150-170ft/mile. But it's not as bad with low low low MTB gearing.

    Our new tool/toy. We saved almost a whole half gallon of gasoline from Saturday afternoon through Sunday.


    kids picked out the horn. It sorta fits. Downtown to grab a movie from the library followed by free Slurpee day. Dad even earned one.



    First grocery store run



    Third grocery store run. Need a front rack next.

    3-4 mile trips never hurt so much. Only problem so far is that my daughter doesn't want to ride her bike now, she just wants to sit on the back of the Dummy.

    So I now proudly own a bike with a kickstand and most all of the new bike reflectors still installed.

    Looks awesome! Can the one of the far back help you vis-a-vis Fred Flinstone kicks? Also, what in the world are they sitting on? Looks like kickboards for the swimming pool.
