    Default Velocipede Salon Ride Reports- May 9th to May 15th

    Quick MTB spin around the house in light rain.

    No photo, but I was surprised to KOM a section of dirt on my ride commute this morning.

    Was running late, putting the baby down after a morning feed and had to make up for lost time. feels cool having done it on a 30lb commuter bike.

    Planned to work from home today. Forgot that the cleaner was coming first thing (and prefers that I am not present). So I got out for a couple hours on Monday am. Good way to start the week.

    I got home to find this going on right outside my window:


    I'm sure they'll be very quiet. We'll see how much work gets done at home today.

    What a beautiful day! I have today to myself, so I allowed myself to get lost whereupon I found a new to me road. Now I'm going to drink a beer and take a nap.

    Goslings, fawns, lambs, calves were the day's theme.

    Been laid up with the Flu for the past week, feeling annoyed at the timing given how nice the weather had become. Decided I'd give it a go today and pootled around for an hour at low velocity feeling empty.

    Its another day tomorrow!

    Camping in Kettle Moraine with the family. I got out for 50something miles blissfully free of Chicagoland traffic and with lots of rollers.

    Got in a nice recovery ride after lots of hills this weekend. Felt great, but hard to keep from burning along on the new wheels. They're training plan wreckers!

    Into the fog today. I had planned to go off road but it was a little too wet.

    Wow! A beautiful day!

    Singlespeed-A-Palooza is next weekend, gotta get some time in on this thing, and really had a blast today at Graham.

    Rode with a couple of old friends, guy on the right is Dave Delucia, big reason for the great trails and access we enjoy here in Westchester.

    Some cool features on the new trail called Tumbleweed...including a spot to relax...

    Evening ride tonight. So much fun to ride a full squish bike.

    Got home from work, checked the weather, only a 15% chance of rain with strong winds out of the south. I headed east then south to take advantage of a strong wind to push me home. I started noticing some dark clouds to the west, then some flashes of lightning but it was all in the distance. I kept an eye on it and it seemed to be moving towards town some so I cut it short and headed home. As I got to the edge of town I heard the tornado sirens. I went into full on time trial mode just hammered away from the storm as fast as I could. Lightning was striking all around me but no rain yet. When I got to my neighborhood, people were standing in their yards looking west towards a reported tornado. I was the idiot riding a bike in a Tornado Warning. I got home with 29.6 miles so I rode around the block (I know) to get 30 even. About 20 minutes later the skies opened up and we likely got around 5 inches of rain with flash flooding, dime sized hail, and several tornados. My son was at the high school doing some UIL stuff so he was on lock down until the warnings were cancelled. They watched the tornado south of town touchdown a few times. Not much out there but a dairy. West of town is a big Mennonite community.

    Pictures: started out promising on the BLE, shit, oh shit.

    This morning while heading to work...Flatted my rear tubular which was a worn spare while I wait for my LBS to get the 28mm corsa graphene. Put my last spare which is a 25-30y old vittoria. The casing is so dry I'll head to the nearest shop to buy whatever is available at lunch time.



    Oh, and I replaced the chain for a new one of the correct length.

    Weak as a kitten yesterday after a busy weekend. Went out for 30 very scenic miles with my buddy and shamelessly sat on his wheel in between hills, where I didn't even have the gumption to put up a fight as he rode away from me. Every time. Lots of hills, too. Paddling tonight.

    Rain this morning, pouring at times. I didn't care, with my rain bike extraordinaire. These lights are really bright and always on.
