50 degrees @ 9am

Another beautiful morning in Iowa, another ride for Steve.  3 days in a row!

Morning commute lemond ss by gpickle at Garmin Connect – Details.

I took the LeMond ss this morning, and left the gps on for the whole ride. The first stop is when I bumped into neighbor Scott out walking his dog. We had a heartrate elevating conversation about global warming, urban farming and water conservation.  Good stuff! Second stop the New Pi Coop for lunch stuff. Third stop the bank to deposit yet another backpack stuffed full of cash from 30th Century Bicycle.  Uh-huh.

Back in the saddle again

Finally something to share on the old blog! It has been a long dry spell of riding for me. I continue to deal with some weird tendon issue in my lower right leg. I have been seeing a massage therapist and he is perplexed, so we are trying the old take a whole bottle of ibuprofin and call me when it is over thing. In addition to having a bum leg we have been hard at work the last couple of months moving 30th Century Bicycle to warmer, bigger, nicer diggs. With a toilet! So riding has been a low priority, but I am hoping to be able to start getting back to it, and I have a lot of work to do if I hope to get back to even reasonable shape anytime soon. At least I am well rested!

Morning MB-2 Commute by gpickle at Garmin Connect – Details.

This morning I took the long way to work, nice and easy, gotta be careful not to overdo it right now. In addition to this fine outing I also made it out for a couple of hours yesterday on the MASI SSCX. I love that bike, and I had not ridden it since Halloween. Got a couple of trainer rides in last week, too, just 30 mins each, and just easy spinning.
