    Default Vélocipède Salon Member Ride and Fun Reports-Jan 13-19

    Posting to keep this thread streak going. And because it was a fine ride.

    Took the bike crafted and built in Coupland Texas that rides on wheels crafted and built in Montreal Quebec for a little sightseeing around the Big Apple.

    Occasionally stopped to take in the sights and attempted some speed work (as best as can be done in the city) between photo opps.

    My commute is pretty mundane, but the bike certainly isn't.

    Plenty of wind, missed the snow squalls but there they are, off in the distance...

    Blue bird today, but the lowlands are still flooded.

    Steady gale, on and off sun, some drops of wintery rain... Yesterday's conditions would have made for a great early Spring classic.

    I enjoyed being outside but January rides always feel like work... Winter base miles, summer smiles, I gues...

    We had a hard freeze last night. I hit black ice today and became separated from my bike. I may change my handle to horizontal_fred. Hip is pretty sore...



    You can still see the frost at 11 a.m in the shadow of the hill.



    There appears to be some wind damage from Winter Storm Megxit. I am only disappointed that Harry did not sneak in the tower to free the ravens before abdicating.

    90 minutes on the Peloton yesterday and a cold blustery hour on the MTB today. No pics.

    Nice hike with the kids and pup at Great Falls this morning.

    Sorry for the grainy cell phone picture. Friday I took the Track 101 class at the Lexus Velodrome in Detroit to get ready for my first track racing season since about 1994 or 1995. Now I can't wait for the spring and the opening of the Major Taylor Velodrome in Indy where I'll do my crashing....err racing, this summer. VeloAndy.jpg

    Kristof, what was the air temperature when you snapped those pics? I am always amazed how verdant that part of the world remains in the dead of winter.

    Must have been around 41F... We haven't had any real winter yet - only a few nights in November when the temperature dropped below freezing... In fact, I did spot the first daffodils of this year yesterday...
