Weeklong Garmin Dump

Peterson’s Scrap Metal Xtracycle Trip by gpickle at Garmin Connect – Details.

I took a ride on the Xtracycle to take shop salvage aluminum to the scrap yard. 86lbs!

Never the most fun task, it always feels good to get it done. Disaster almost struck, I thought my shifting was a bit wonky, but in actuality the FreeRadical lost FAP control and the drive side dropout bolt slipped and almost made it out. Yikes – remember to check yer bolts periodically.

Next I rolled the LeMond ss up to North Liberty to have a couple of beers at Red’s with Gritty, the Gritty Brevet’s namesake. Good times, and nice to be riding again in some capacity. The leg still feels like it is doing okay, this was my biggest mileage day of the year!

Then, because it was so much fun I did it again the next night.

This time with Dustin, the famous brother of Ira Ryan. We rode a bit slower and (unrelated) drank a bit more. Fine beer list they have up that way!

Took a couple of days off then, busy and the weather was kinda crummy. But Sunday got out for a kind of long one, almost 3 hours and almost 40 miles. Left with Jeremi and Ronnie and Evil Rob, finished up with Rob. Rode the MASI SSCX which is currently still my favorite bike.

Pretty tired by the end of that one. I don’t know when the last time was I was this out of shape, but I don’t like to remember it! Last one to dump then, standard long way to work this morning.
