Weekend riding a la hurt

Riding home with frozen hands

The Slender Fungus in daytime action. Weird

Saturday Group ride. Mike, Brian and Hellmut on the 29er.

This one is for Guitar Ted. Nothing fits in the chainstay besides a Wrench Force 4 way spoke wrench to torque the tap to clean out the threads on frame ready for fenders.

Hellmut and I have come to the realization that we never have an enjoyable ride together. Whenever we ride it is cold, dark, damp, snowing, windy and just plain miserable. Today we hooked up for an afternoon ride and left around 330 p.m. We rode crossbike all the way to Waterman and back. Temps were mildish (low 30's) and we dressed accordingly. We forgot lights and our hand situation turned bad. On the way back the temps dropped like crazy and the humidity was way high. We both got really stingy fingers despite me throwing on "all I had", which meant fleece liners, Wool thinsulate gloves and OR mittens. My hands were gone when I got home and had to ring the door to be let in. We were able to clock in 42 miles in what was just another boring Superbowl Sunday. Road were light and all the blue boxes were a'Blazing in the houses we passed.

Don't let your meat loaf,
