    Default This Week's Rides: Sept 9th - 15th

    Last week was a little slack so I wanted to start this week right. Stole a quick hour at lunchtime, round the harbour for some hills with a colleague who's training for the World 24 hour solo later this year, so he's always keen to get out and always pushing me to go harder than I otherwise would. It's warming up down here.

    Fantastic bike. What pressure are you using for those giant tires?

    I got out for just shy of an hour on the rock lobster this morning. Just tooled around the neighborhood and took in the sights. This morning that included a sunrise on the bay, a peacock, and a rainbow.

    Great ride yesterday before work. Then the rain came. A full day of rain is unheard of out here. Everyone is depressed... They never lived in PGH.

    Not to worry, boss. After losing most of the weekend to home improvement gulag training, my rear mech decided there would be no more riding this week either.



    So I should be thinking "chubby" in the tire department?

    Sadly, no. If anyone has some 9-speed goodness in sumptuous silver for this Luddite Campyphile, I'd love to hear from them.

    I have a 9 spd Daytona. Happy to send it out. You can decide what it's worth.

    today i did one of my better commute routes..
    through concord, around walden pond, across lincoln, by the gropius house and the decordova museum...
    then into newton, stopped by 7 cycles to say hi to some of the gabrones there and then back around and out the minuteman bike path to the car.
    these western suburbs are really nice. full of classic new england colonial homes with very mature and magnificent landscaping. surrounded by new england history the whole way.

    We have had days of rain, Boulder flooded. Sherrif's asking people to stay off the road. However one advantage of living up high in the mountains is that water is not so bad. Anyhow after days of rain I got stir crazy and went out for a ride early this morning on the 4th of July Road.
