    Default Velocipede Salon Member Ride Reports May 13 - May 19

    A weekend in California with Houston. The riding was just as good as the pictures look.

    Sincerely,

    DarrenCA

    I'm surprised I was able to type something. I'm back on the red eye after about 90 minutes of sleep. Report later today
    once I have my fifth cup of coffee! ;)

    Knowing we had missed the "peak" Wildflower explosion, a buddy and his 2nd gravel bike and I made a quick visit out east of Hood River to view the remains. Delightful area. Going back for sure in 2020 to see it in prime time!

    Not been a great spring.

    Snow yesterday, 2 inches on the ground, but luckily it did not last.

    6 weeks of being sick. Flu followed by pneumonia. Did not feel well after the flu, went to occmed and SpO2 was 93 with a hr of 110.
    That is high as I am usually in the low 30s. But nice to see that apple extends the y-axis to -50 for hr.



    Baseline hr is still up, but about 150 miles a week in the last 4 weeks and slowly getting stronger.
    Most of it in cold, wet, snow etc.

    Pretty massive water run off. 40 miles, 3,000 ft today. Still coughing on the dirt road climbs.

    Did a quick 15 mile local loop. Really tired of chilly wind. Forgot the phone, no pics...

    It was a dark and stormy morning.
    Suddenly, a shot rang out! A door slammed.
    The maid screamed.
    Suddenly, a bicycle appeared on the horizon!
    While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury.
    Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

    Rode with two (other) knuckleheads today, it was fantastic.





    When choosing destinations, you can do a lot worse than this place (Barre, MA).

    Cheers, TH.

    Always plan your rides with bars or breweries involved. Friday I rode from the People's Pint in Greenfield, MA on some of the roads from D2R2.
    Saturday, I rode with Todd and Wayne to Stone Cow Brewery on beautiful country roads.

    The weather? It was absolutely perfect.

    First ride of the month. The sun has been doing a great job in hiding itself lately.

    Balmy temperature, some wind. Overcast but pleasant. No complaints.

    Yesterday was the lamb roast at our friends' house in the Catskills. Today was a slow "digestive" ride in Hillsdale. Translation: too much gorgonzola dolce and other delicious food products.

    While in Cuba a few years ago, we met a family from Saratoga Springs NY. As we got to know them, we learned that they had lost a son to a brain tumor when the boy was not quite 13. So, they do an annual fundraiser for research in his honor. This was the third year that my wife and I did the ride (the 25 mile version).

    It poured rain for the first ten miles. But Saratoga is beautiful for the marvelously maintained 1800's houses and very well maintained farms and homes outside of the town proper. I don't do pictures as well as you all, and it was monsooning for a bit so all I can say is there was a lot of this...

    It was great to see friends, felt good to do something good, and was wonderful to have a ride that my wife did with me. Sometimes you just have to enjoy pacing yourself to the serenity of nature, the world around you, and those you are close to. Actually, those other humans in the world around you. I forget that sometimes and this ride really made me remember it and appreciate it.
