Creepin'

Happy St. Patrick's day to all y'Irish





Creepin' over the I-90 overpass.



Creepin' in the Belvedere Walmart with the amazing Fargo




The everpresent facemask to protect against sudden asthma attacks





Justify Full
Had a hardy conversation over the phone with the Giggles. It was really cool to talk to someone "live". Got fired up and got on the bike around 9:30 pm. Temps were around 45 and it seemed like a decent night. I started with the plan to ride out to Genoa but then I got on Genoa rd and started to feel good. I creeped all the way out to Belvedere when I noticed I was empty on food. I had a Tums and 2 advils and then had to return home. I bonked all the way back and just kept riding harder and harder since the temps were dropping. I had the road to myself and the Fargo with the narrower tires and Chris King wheels felt like it was on drugs. What a super-machine. I will definetely consider riding this machine since it offers a very upright position, has a triple and I can carry enough water for a camel. I got in 50 miles in the dark and I was pumped about it. Arrived home and wrestled the fridge and I won. Slept like a rock and today I can't wait for the famous Wednesday night ride.

Wednesday night Ride @ 8:30 p.m
Meeting at Great Western Trail
(GWT)
corner of oldstate rd and airport rd.
Bring bike, food, lights, extra clothing since
temps will drop for sure. Bring money, extra tubes, pump and tools. Irish Whiskey to celebrate St. Patricks Day!

See you there!!!


best,

Ari, the U.S. Postal wouldn't let me ship the item I received from the Himalaya, per Mallory's request. I will deliver in person in Iowa at the pre race meeting/big dance.

Sounds Gouda Tim!!
What about your tire choice? Sticking to Big Tommy's rubber or switching?
