    Oh the Irony! A spinning class excuse Don't feel bad, though, we all have to have a life aside from bikecommuting. I miss days due to dinner with friends, dogsitting, trailriding, etc., etc,. etc....

    And the 100%'rs keep us humble!

    I rode tues and wed but felt the beginnings of a cold so I took the infernal combustion machine today. Glad I did. 10 days of cycle commuting in 20 work days isn't bad for march and early april.

    I drive back from Cape Cod this a.m. directly to work. Tried the Fatback out on the beach - fun! - and hardly anyone out. Don't watch the 1 minute video if you get motion sickness - it's short but spins around a bit. Also rode the jeep trails in the dunes and out to an island that had nice singletrack. Got the kayak out on the tidal river too.

    Biking, Jeeping, and kayaking. Can`t beat that combo
    Was it a partially working trip, or strictly a play weekend to do as you pleased?

    No work, I took Friday off! I don't have a Jeep though, but the fatbike was good on the off road vehicle trails (I rode in the tracks), and there were only a handful of trucks over a few hours.

    Sounds like a blast, the weather looks better than anything we had over the weekend. That's some pretty fancy camera work

    Picking up the kiddo again. My knees can use a day off anyway after all the backwoods exploring on ridged bikes.

    The beginning of next week is forecast to be very summer like, yay!

    Because a doctor ordered me not to drive anything for 24 hours to let the anesthetic wear off.

    I thought I was going to have Friday off, same as the last 1.5. Not sure now. A bearing is going doo-doo and the phone calls are going round so that management can tell us whether they want to disconnect drive from that particular piece of equipment and limp ahead without it for the next few weeks or dig in. I`ll be getting a phone call in about twelve hours to tell me how it comes out. I had to do that job about ten years ago, right after I transfered into the maintenance department, and it took three of us a week to finish

    12 hour shift. Tired and riding home in the dark.....not happening.

    Yesterday, on my commute home at 5 pm there was 5 car chain reaction rear-ending in the opposite lane. I'm on the drops and cant see too far ahead and hear the squeal of tires. That sure woke me up. No one was badly hurt.

    I rode home with my wife to put our dog of 10ish years down today. After a 3 year battle with some kind of doggy cancer he finally gave up the ghost. The vet only gave him a few months and that was 3 years ago. He had a great run but still sad as hell.

    Didn't ride Monday because I did a 140km (84mi) "all-road" race Sunday and could barely walk, let alone ride.

    ^^ Losing long-term pets is a bummer if inevitable. It bothered me. Not some:

    "Did you ou the cat out?"
    "The cat died today!"
    "All the more reason to put it out."

    I decided to go hiking at a state park to see if it was worth bringing a bike the next time I go. No go between horse trails, steep inclines/declines and it's just not safe with the ravines and drop offs. Too bad because it's only about 20 minute drive and it has simply stunning scenery.

    Had a great day and did 4 miles of hiking. Riding a bike makes going up hills on foot pretty easy now.

    If you think going up hills on foot is easy, it's time to do it faster.

    I usually find riding the next day helps to clear out the system. It's usually limited to an easy ride.
