    Weights on the bike has a double effect, I find. On the one hand you are slower to get up to speed/climb but faster on the descents and hold speed easier on the flat. Swings and roundabouts, as they say.

    Speaking of roundabouts, I had my second off of the season today... Driver blocked the round about and I decided to go around. It had one of those slippery decorative kerb things in the middle. I came at it at an oblique angle and the front wheel tracked up and over the kerb ok, the back not so much... It slid along the kerb edge and ended up throwing me off the bike. It was peeing down rain you see... Left knee, right thigh are a bit bruised but my bike is a-ok. My pride took the biggest hit, though...

    I thought I was the only one around these parts to wear swim shorts when it rains.

    Nice vid CB!

    I dont wear swimshorts on the bike but similar quick drying stuff, like outdoor zip-off pants etc. When it rains and it is warm enough I just get wet and let it dry again or changebat the end.of the ride. This way I am not hauling around my raingear all summer and I get wet only 1-2 times a year (rain radars rule).

    Congrats on the 1st place Bedwards! Cool video CB, and good thing the bike is Ok Ghost! That sucks on the crash, I nearly wiped out the other day on one of those slipery metal utility covers on a sidewalk today. Local police on dual sport motorcycles have been cracking down on the tweakers living on the trail and in the tunnels/bridges. Bout time! It was getting bad. One on a bridge today was in cuffs and the cop was rummaging through his shopping cart full of crap. They are making a mess of everything leaving mattresses and furniture and garbage and human waste all over the place, it's really gross.

    NDD what are your plans for the bikepacking? I think it's a blast.

    ^ Eugene, I'm thinking about taking a couple days to bike around the Missouri Ozarks this autumn. Got a new pannier setup, tent, and hammock.
