    Bedwards, I think that I said that and you answered that you rather rely on the flotation of your fatbike tires ;o))

    So, dry but windy today with gusts of 35kts. Ride in took longer, ride home was faster and the round trip average was ... average so nothing special.


    Slipspace is sending nice weather over here, 3 warm and sunny days as from sunday. Hope to make the most.of it - could be the last nice days of the year...

    Was a good week on the commuter, started taking a street instead of the trail on the downhill way to work. They've been repaving and restriping the street so it now has a defined bike lane and side parking instead of a crazy 4 lane free for all. Shaves a good 6-8 minutes off the ride in. Is it ok to talk about it being dark yet? I started work a little earlier lately and I love it, less cars, less noise, less peoples, less light. makes me mo happy in the morning!

    ^^^It's good to hear that you're doing well. I've really been enjoying the dark morning solitude lately also.

    This upcoming week looks like a good one for commuting. Temps in the high 30s/low 40s, dry. I just upgraded my bike to 1x10: 34t + 11-36. Since I was just riding in the 36t for all my commuting anyway, I decided to change. Eager to take it on the long ride. We'll see Monday.

    So despite the North West of the country getting the tail end of hurricane Ophelia (now storm class I believe) and 100+mph winds here on the east it bright, sunny, not really windy and we're anticipating highs of 23C!! Shorts and tee only required

    Was feeling really good this morning, legs felt fresh and I was just cruising along. Nice crisp fall morning, temps in the high 50s, low wind.

    Then something clunked hard on the ground, took me a few seconds to figure out what happened. The mount for my bar mounted light decided to disassemble itself, sending my light flying onto the concrete.

    At least it will still be light for my ride home and I don't have to rely on my helmet light alone.

    Okay ride in minus the driver who gave me crap because I "cut her off" (after she parked in the middle of the pedestrian crossing at a stop sign). Best motorist quote ever after I said you have to stop at the stop sign, not in front of the sidewalk "Where does it say that?" reply "You mean stop? or at the sidewalk?. It says stop on that big red sign, it says before crossing the sidewalk in the law, the drivers manual, probably on the internet." On the ride home? Broke another spoke climbing. I don't think I've ever broken a spoke doing anything gut climbing.
    The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.

    ^^^ Some motorists are so clueless. I hate the ones that try to be overly polite and wave you through intersections, etc. Appreciate the gesture but things would be more predictable if they would treat us like another vehicle on the road.

    Bummer about the spoke. Repeated broken spokes are a sign of a bigger problem with how the wheel is put together.

    Rain here today. Pretty much going to be the drill until next May
