Don't let the lack of posting let you think..................
that we have been slacking here. Giggles and I have been pounding our clean of snow roads every day. We have been doing hills and commuting to work. I have put on some upright bars and have been riding my steamroller since I switched my gearing from a 42x15 to A 42x18. I feel that the fixed gear bike is helping to tighten up my legs and develop some forgotten muscles. I am glad I had this idea. Been fighting off this chest congestion that is just lingering. The whole family has it. No reason to go to the Doc, just an annoying cough. Got some awesome tights from Louis Garneau and they are just fabulous. Also after 6 years of use my cable on my boa system on the lake boots snapped. I just looked at it, made a knot and kept riding. Giggle has been riding his Fargo and is going to Vermont to hit some gravel. I would like to make a hike out to Rome, NY on the Erie canal to complete about a 75mile ride on gravel. It's all coming together quite nice and feel fitter than last year this time.
get out and ride,
