2013 SMR 09

Cold but sunny, and a little too windy.

Just me and JB to the Junction.

No wildlife today, there was snow on The Mountain Thursday, but there were POPPIES this morning.

Random C4 dude.
The ZigZag

1149 Watts in Janet's spin class Wednesday... that's a PB.

Actually I hit over 1300 Watts but the sample rate
only records once a second and since it didn't get recorded,
I obviously wasn't doing it for very long!

2013 SMR 08

Almost warm enough to skip the jacket this morning.

Roadkill Report:  Jackrabbit GoreScore=8... severed head and his eyes were open, but not a lot of blood.

Wildlife Encounter:  lots and lots of turkeys.  There was one really studly guy who looked like he was doing a mating dance around one of the hens... no wonder the population is growing so fast.

Heard there was a pretty serious cyclist injury with helicopter medivac on SGR about 11 o'clock... let me know if you have details.

2013 SMR 07

A rare Sunday Morning Ride.

I wondered how things would be different on Sunday...
Turns out they're kind of the same except with different people.
Traffic wasn't any more or less either.

So it was just like a Saturday Morning Ride except I was solo and I was riding Eddy.

My Contour mount doesn't fit on the skinny Columbus SL head tube as well as it does on the larger diameter Klein aluminum head tube so the camera kept slipping to one side or the other when I hit a bump or turned a corner... I'll have to figure something out.

I had good intentions on doing a Summit today, but it was really windy and by Junction I had lost my attitude.

These guys kept passing me and then stopping on
the shoulder where I'd pass them back.

Wind and cold = clear blue skies.

2013 SMR 06

Today's plan:  up NGR, down SGR, collect Kevin at the Tire Poppers, and re-Junction, back down NGR where his ride would pick him up.

I think the worst of winter is over... today was quite pleasant.

Walnut Avenue... best bike lanes in town.

North Gate seemed like a normal day, but there were masses of people on the Easy Side.

Kevin said his legs felt like limp noodles... we assured him that was a good thing.
