    More people have moved into canal boats for housing since the Pandemic started. Let's see how they like winter.

    Today ... 35 miles, 3,500' of climbing.

    Out the door early, still dark.

    One good sprint to avoid getting eaten by loose, vicious dog on Prach Road.

    Up on a high hilltop in southern Vermont. My pal Flip is on the left pointing up at Jupiter. My head's on the right; you can see my helmet light.

    A challenger was thinking about challenging the boss.



    But when he saw the rack on the boss stag, common sense prevailed.

    Had to check your location, Lumpy.
    This looks like the Shenandoah valley.

    No fancy animals from my city ride.

    Although after 30 miles of it, I did stop for jerk chicken in Boerum Hill…



    The guy had WBGO playing through that old KLH on the counter and after listening to BB King, Little Milton, et al while I consumed the chicken; the last 10 miles back home were kinda slow and mellow.

    Put a few miles on the "re-geared for Columbia County hills" Waterford.

    Thanks, Jorn, for getting the shifting right with the new cassette.

    That guy will work for (coffee) beans!

    We moved to a new place in New England. We landed in a good spot.

    Shop's open when I'm here and that's most times. Fun to see the stars of your annual mileage in person.

    The road riding is top-drawer; the mountain biking is pretty good and there's lots of it, but what I love about Berkshire County is that almost every day there's some combination of light and landscape where I've never quite seen it that way before.
