Recap: Saturday Night Ride.

Saturday night was... cold. Tom ended up riding my winter bike, which he soon found out the hard way that it is tank. Ryan, Michelle, Tom and I met up at the Sparrows enjoy a quick warm up and then headed out. The route wasn't all that long, but given how cold it was and that we rode from the my place it made for a good 15 mile ride.

Just a few pictures from the outing...













Ryan [pictured on the left] is going to be having a pretty sweet Masi going up for sale soon... check out Craigslist for sure, but it will be a steal of a deal for the frame, fork, stem, headset, seat/seatpost/seatpost clamp...

Michelle, or F squared, gets the 'Champ' of the night award. Not only for being the only person with two X chromosomes but also came with her stock hybrid tires on [which we lowered to 30psi to get some sort of traction] and forgot both a front and rear headlight... yeah, watch out she'll kick your... butt.

And then the man of the hour... Geoff, pedicabing around with Tom in the back, not only did Tom score a free ride but didn't even tip [nice helmet by the way!].

It was a good ride, winter riding is always an adventure and always better in groups. Drivers don't get better as the temperature drops [even the law enforcement, but that's a story/rant for another day] but everyone made it home safe and that's all that matters.

Fun ride that night for sure! Even though it took ten minutes and a shower before my hands were even useable again after I got home. Man was I cold!

that ride was a test of my heart.

other than the snow-covered alley y'all took me down, i think my fcr did quite alright in the arctic tundra.

...I pretty much phailed.

It's been a whole week since your last post. My body is going into bloggers withdrawal. I need my fix man...
