Sunday Afternoon Ride



Brad and I got out for a few hours to lay down some kms at the BHP. It was a nice afternoon to get out...if it was still February. There's still lots of snow in the park to go with the windchill. Fortunately the loop was clear, so it was a good ride depite winter's stubbornness to abate.

I also had the opportunity to accompany Brad on his maiden voyage with his new Crosscheck. It's a pretty sweet ride. I want one. Wifey said no.

  2. Thanks Mike.

    See how my mouth is wide open? Somebody's been training, and somebody's been lazy the last few weeks. I'll let you guess who.

    But when a guy turns down a post-ride offer of chips, admits to spending a lot of time with his Chris Carmichael DVD's and has drastically reduced beer consumption, you know somethings up.

    The FGBC boys had better start saving for that case of beer ...

  3. Brad, I just noticed those funky spokes on your front wheel. Man, you're putting so much torque into the pavement that even your front wheel is feeling the effects. That's impressive. Tell us how you do it!

    My current level of motivation means nothing except that I'll hate my bike in June when I'll blow RRR's trust fund on beer for myself.

  5. We have a trust fund? You mean you've been selling those parts you snuck out of RRR's basement workshop and headquarters?

  6. C'mon, Brad, don't sound so innocent. You talk like you've never paid the workshop a secret visit.

    We all have found ourselves, at some point, hiding in the dark corners of the workshop, holding our breath until Larry passes by. Mike it does all the time.

  7. When your cousin is the warden, it blurs the lines.

  8. Hey, FYI, Larry and Jane are in Mexico.... I have a house key.....My aunt is there babysitting Robyn..... I also have some handrail parts that came in to install......(and Jane is always happy to have less "junk" in her basement.)
    I'm just being the good guy.(Larry can't figure out what he has and doesn't anymore either-so that helps)

  9. I see the spoke bendy thing now-sweet. How do you do that. So much torque on the front wheel. Fantastic!
