    Spring skiing in perfect conditions. Four or more inches of fresh snow on a solid base. Skate skiing is also called freestyle, and these conditions allow skiing anywhere. It's a total blast.

    I did 37-38 miles this afternoon. I've been riding so much lately I should probably take a break soon, I'm feeling fit but rough around the edges. As it turns out my wife has an out of town job in Norfolk VA tomorrow morning I'll be taking her to though, so looks like tomorrow might be that day off. ;)

    When you're stopped on the side of the road this is not what you really want to see when you look up...



    Old school gravel bike...

    Eat one live toad first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you all day.

    Years ago I was in a bunch of guys cruising along at a pretty good pace when a couple guys behind me touched wheels, one guy goes down and breaks his shoulder and bangs his noggin hard enough to break his helmet. He's lying there on the side of the road receiving care and suddenly he starts going "Look! Look up in the sky!" We get a little concerned thinking something is going a little wrong.

    "Buzzards!" he goes. "I'm not dead yet, you bastards! Come back later!"

    Is a joke about Darren and a picture of aimlessly milling sheep under the heading of "ride" reports inappropriate for this thread?

    A raucous good time albeit a little slower than I would have liked for a mid-week jaunt.

    I'd give Pucci's left nut to get a goddam day above 50 around here...just a quick 90 minutes around the 'hood. I'm sure the trees were leafing out by this time last year. Oh, and to update the score on stone barns, that's Easley 2 - DCT 0

    I drove quite a few miles today, but did still end up riding a quick 32 miles. I changed out my chain right before the ride and experienced what I consider one of the best feelings you can have on a bike - the smoothness of a new chain. I change mine out every 4-5 months and love that feeiing of powering into a new chain on a climb. :)

    I'm saving all the barns and covered bridges for your visit. Second weekend in May?

    Sounds good; should I pick my wife up something for mother's day when we visit the cougar bar?
