Early Morning BRRRRRR Ride

Well Brett talked me into an 8:30AM ride, meeting at Station Road. So I'm up and on the bike at 8:00 AM sharp and for some reason heading to Rockside & Canal #39.....
I call Brett and he's like....uh, what part of Brecksville didn't you understand? :-(
So I hump it and meet up with Brett Ironlegs & John I-ride-40-b4-you-are-even-out-of-bed E.
John rides with us for awhile and then states that his escort duty is done and hands off Brett to me. Shortly after we meet up with Bob and Ross and hit the valley. Big fun and laughs for all ensue. Oh, did I mention that Brett D. is on his 40 lbs fixie. It hurt my knees watching him climb the hills.
Any whooooo....1.5 hrs into the ride Ross splits off and I'm thinking I need to get started back home also....Brett & Bob split off to hit the Gary, er tow path back and I continue through the park home.
38 miles at 30'F for 2-1/2 hours.

Rock'n out Friday Night

Yep....nothin to do with biking....unless you count drinking Belgium beer?
Donny invited David S, John E. Gary/Satan, Nate, Anna & I for some pizza, beer & Rock Band. Needless to say I was on a mission to consume vast quantities of beer, try singing/playing bass and recording the event. It was big fun....the pictures speak for them selves.....enjoy.


Rides.....rode with the "east siders". Met at 10:45AM on Sunday and rode off with the crew. I gotta luv my fenders! Unfortunately, my front derailer decided to slide down so I couldn't shift into my big ring until we stopped for a flat to be fixed and John saying, gee, you know it has slid down. D'oh.
So, got that fixed and finished the 32 mile ride....Brent gave some helpful tips on developing more power and sprinting position....THANKS!
Today was too good to stay instead of taking an hour for lunch, I got dressed and hit the road for and hour plus. Got 20 miles in.....roads were still wet so the $ I spent on the fenders has just paid for itself in my book.
I hope everyone can get out for this 1 day wonder weather!
