    This stopped me from going the distance. On a newly rebuilt/tuned Reba, no less. Time to go have a few words with my lbs mechanic...

    Trail maintenance stopped me from riding today. I was just too exhausted to ride after. I didnt want to be that guy that crashed out because he was tired and got lazy.

    Fire the LBS and do it yourself...It is really not that hard to do, albeit a bit messy with the oil, but plenty of U-Tube vids to show you how to. Nothing ticks me off more than to pay a pro and have them mess it up...

    My Wife... To her credit she didn't want me to go ride in the dark without any lights. I got mad and then had to say sorry cause she thinks rationally and I don't.

    Brutal cold, I woke up feeling like absolute garbage. I was looking forward to riding this morning and also tomorrow morning. Maybe I will get lucky and feel better tomorrow.

    Friends grrr

    Didn't stop me from riding but cut it in half.

    Saturday went riding with friends. A few miles in one mentioned he had to be somewhere by a certain time so dropped a few trails off the route to get to ensure the better ones would be in the ride and about half way there the other decided they didn't want to ride anymore and since I rode to the trails with her, I had to go back.
    Ended up being a 14 mile ride of mostly service road. I was a bit annoyed.


    Aggravated me because with the season changes and work, my weekday rides are out and I didn't think I would be able to ride the next day.
    I was able to squeeze a last minute short ride in on Sunday but chose to do it solo.

    One more round today of clearing Trailview on Long Island after Sandy.

    Finally getting the last of the big stuff out of there with the chainsaw ( you did not hear that from me).

    Had the bikes in the cars ready to go for the ride afterwards, but the crew decided on Reubens at Duggans instead! (good choice!).

    Hats off Guys! SW to Manetto is Clear!

    Six inches of new, heavy, wet snow with another 4 to 6 forecast for today. Oh, wait, that didn't stop me from riding...




    Note: The skinny bike in the rack behind me has been there for 6 months without moving - thus has much more snow on it than my ride - mine's been sitting there for four hours in this pic.
