was interesting to see how much fork compression I used on this trail

was surprised but also interested to see the mud splashes on the rear trunk. don't think I'll rush to do another mudflap just yet tho



while squeezing thru one of the downed trees had a little issue with a big branch pushing up on the rear fender. easily bent my DIY brace, but then it also straightened out just as easily



rear deflector is working but I think it can be better. not much room to work tho



how hard would it be to invent a deflector for the bottom bracket & chain rings? wonder how strong that little screw that holds the BB cable guide is?

finally got a window of opportunity & got out for a cpl hrs. temps in the high 30s. stayed upright & stayed dry. nice to see ppl out for walks on a sunny day. there were a handful of riders as well. since there was no ice I guess it was a good day to set the studs on the new 29x2.0 tires. at 50 psi the rear measured 49mm. the front was at 40psi. they are noticeably slower than the 29x2.25 Riddlers. when the mush & ice appear I'll try lower, maybe 30 front 40 rear. not exactly sure what wheel factor to use so I tried the middle number of these three

2273
2288
2289

11.20 miles
25.6 max
8.6 avrg
1hr 17min in the saddle but had a leisurely time exploring & was away from the house for a cpl hrs













hoping to get a ride in this week after work left the bike outside in the rain. covered the saddle & also clipped the barmitts closed to keep the rain out

12/5/18 Concord, Bedford & Billerica using Reformatory Branch & Narrow Gauge Trails, at night in sub-freezing temps, approx. 26 - 32 degrees. didn't want to lug all my stuff to work so i prepped the night before so I could drive home, get my stuff then drive to Concord. don't count on Bedford Depot restrooms, they are closed for the season! too bad they were always a welcome sanctuary, especially at night!

7:10pm - 8:08pm 7.9 miles to Billerica
14 mph max
9.1 avrg
52 min saddle time

9:12pm back at car
Whole ride
15.9 miles
15.9 max that's a weird coincidence!
9.3 avrg
1hr 43min saddle time
Trip duration approx. 2hrs (not including driving the 15 miles (round trip) to home)
I slept well

even tho it's been real cold, the mud was not solid, a little crunchy at the edges & tops of the ruts, y folded right over & made riding a little tricky in spots. all good fun. I let a little air out of the front tire for the ride back, I think it's time, & steering thru the mud was a little easier. this is a nice little night ride. doesn't feel long but when I;'m done I'm over 15 miles & got a cpl hrs of outside exercise!

used the 2nd sportcam. so kept one on my helmet & one in my pocket. I like that instead of having to move one around to do everything. unfortunately these are not effective at night. I might take my wide angle diffuser off for a little more punch thru the darkness





this is at 62 heading back west down into what is some pretty soft mud. good thing I knew it was coming or I might have hit it to fast


always a good idea to wear a headlamp around my neck to help take leaves out of the fenders & derailers, or in this case, air down a smidge






on my last cold ride my phone turned off I guess due to the cold even tho it was in my jacket pocket, so this time I added a toe warmer! it worked!


finally got to use these PI winter gloves. they worked out very well, even inside the bar mitts. but at the 1/2 way point I swapped them for my lighter go-to wind stopper gloves


I also swapped out the balaclava at the 1/2 way but 3 miles later put it back on. the very thin beanie & cycling headband weren't quite cutting it. shud have brought a thin knit hat maybe. but it was no biggie the balaclava wasn't that wet & I just turned it inside out. I also unzipped the pitzips for a little while but soon zipped them back up. this temp range may be the limit for the Marmot jacket. I had a zip neck poly base & fleece shirt which was fine, but if I was gonna be out any longer I would need another layer or a different top layer. I was eager to find out how the Basecamp helmet & visor would work with a balaclava & I'm happy they pair up well.

sock liners, hand warmers & winter socks in the winter boots were good too

Concord, Bedford & Billerica using Reformatory Branch & Narrow Gauge Trails, again with temps in the high 20s. lugged all my stuff to work so I could just go straight to the Concord parking lot. Wound up being away from my car for 2 hrs this time. Hmmm guess I had more stops … didn’t bring the computer cuz I was rushing to get to work w/o being too late. Plus I know it’s approx 16 miles

With a gym session at lunchtime & a nice night time bike ride, it’s easy to go to bed early

the mud is solid now, glad I let a little air out of the front tire last time, might be time to let a smidge out of the rear

used a new-to-me waterproof digital point-&-shoot cam I got off ebay for $40. It has very limited usefulness. Kept the polaroid sportcam on my helmet but experimented with FHD (full HD) but the file sizes are so much bigger & with poor lighting it was a waste

took my wide angle diffuser off for a little more punch thru the darkness, it was nice to have all that light back. But I couldn’t find the original clear lens so I used the lens from the cheap knock-off headlight. It fit but not perfectly so I had to listen to it rattle the whole time. Ordered the proper lens

after the way point I put the headlamp that I wear around my neck in my pocket, it’s too annoying around my neck & gets in the way when I want to zip up or down the various layers I had on

I added a toe warmer to my cell phone again, wish they came as singles

use the PI winter cycling gloves again. but again at the 1/2 way point I swapped them for my lighter go-to wind stopper gloves

again I also swapped out the balaclava at the 1/2 way & this time brought a thin knit hat to take it’s place. My headband was in my trunk so I didn’t add that but it would have been helpful because even tho the knit hat is long enough to cover my ears, I could have used more "sealing" from the cold wind

added a layer up top this time, a modest fleece vest. It was just the ticket. Kept the pit zips on the Marmot jacket closed except toward the end I opened them a cpl inches ea.

down below I wore the Headwind pants under the Showers Pass storm pants. Good cold weather combo. Trishorts under both of course

used the usual sock liners, hand warmers & winter socks in the winter boots

hot water with honey in the Corkcicle thermos! oh yeah!

2 hrs 3 min saddle time








started w light gloves but didn't need them with the barmitts at the 1/2 way turn



quilted shirt & Marmot jacket up top. running tights under the headwind pants

noticed a rattle where the fender vibrates close to the nut on the bottom of the rear rack. so I glued a square of foam door sweep to the top of the fender where they make contact



also cleaned the forks again & wiped a smidge of silicone on the shafts & seal. then covered them with Lizard Skins

ran down to the Assabet again today in a nice steady rain. used the Basecamp helmet & face shield but with so much rain the shield got really messy. took the helmet cam off & tried the new helmet cover. love it!

before that last ride was looking at options for covering the helmet w/o interfering with the sport-cam velcro mount & I decided to try closing the helmet vents w/ common foam insulation I had laying around the house. seemed to work OK.

Assabet 1-16-19 temps in the low 30s

9.86 miles
25.4 mph max
9.9 avrg
62 min saddle time
70 min away from house

spooky but fun. wild strange sounds echoing across the frozen ice like a giant drum reverberating with the slightest movement from animals or ice shifting


this area was too sketchy to ride thru & looked too broken to walk around. plus I was on a mission for a fast ride around the perimeter roads only

Assabet 2-2-19 temps in the 20s

9.18 miles
23.5 max
6.9 avrg
1 hr 19 min saddle time
2 hours away from house

it's been an interesting few weeks of precipitation so the perimeter & interior trail conditions were not favorable for anything but a fat bike, skis, or feet. need a bit more melting of that snow pack. a nice layer of hard ice would be nice. u-turned twice before resorting to the dirt auto roads along the river

Velcro helmet mount has too much lateral wobble, so all that footage on the rough trails is torture to watch. on the smooth road, it's fine, but I think some mods are in order


had a good time anyway





I think I like the black full face balaclava w the Basecamp dark visor. 1st time riding with the snow camo jacket, kinda fun

since I have three camera pivot ball quick release mounts I cut the ball & pivot off one & roughed up the bottom w a dremel & glued it to the Basecamp helmet. the hard plastic velcro patch wasn't coming off, so had to glue the mount to that. used a whole bottle of super glue gel. should be interesting. gonna try it out in 24 hrs



edit: 1st thing next day this feels strong. tried it a few times w cpl of the cams & it doesn't budge. not sure about riding tonight tho cuz my nose is bleeding & I'm sneezing like crazy w also a runny nose. feel like dirt

temps in the low 30s
Concord to Billerica & back taking almost 3 hrs! that's a record slow time! didn't even stop much. it was just sooo slow & hard riding the wet trails, Reformatory Branch & Narrow Gauge. it really is best to stay off these when the temp is so warm & the ground is so saturated
computer didn't function even tho I couldn't visually spot a problem with it. wonder if I damaged the wire on the car rack ... but I know the distances from previous rides

5:50 pm started
7:20 pm 1/2 way approx 8 miles
8:45 pm 16.1 miles back at car
(almost 3 hrs for the trip, a full hour longer than drier rides)

had several rides with the last charge on the Magicshine battery & then let it sit for a long time. shudda charged it cuz it cutout before the turnaround. used the Serfas True 255 backup light for most of the ride. glad I recently put fresh batteries in all my lights.

magic shine does a nice job off-road


this was the worst of it. it wasn't all this bad. there was still some ice so that was easier & faster. but for the most part is was a slow, arduous, slog. had to keep reminding myself not to worry about speed or length of ride, cuz I like this



new helmet mount for the cam worked great, but had to switch to the rain hat for most of the ride



funny thing about rain & bar mitts. the rain flows down my sleeves into the mitts & pools inside them but above my hands. so I had to periodically tilt them down to poor the water out!




drive-train got covered in mud & gravel. cold hear it grinding away & got consistent chain-suck when in the lowest gear front & rear. had to stop & use some water bottle water to rinse it off. when I got home I did some more of that & left it out overnight in the cold rain, then again this morning hit it with with soapy water & a brush. sounds mush better. might be time to have my local mech check the disc pads & maybe replace them soon

the plan was to wear this up top:
zip base long sleeve
fleece shirt long sleeve
thin fleece vest
rain jacket

but it seemed chilly so substituted the vest for a thin long sleeve fleece full zip top. at first it seemed right, then too warm & wound up unzipping all that I could. but that last hour, when the cold rain started, I zipped everything back up & it was just right

for legs the Novara Headwind pants under the Showers pass Transit pants was just right

started the ride with thin windstopper gloves but rode w/o gloves for the last hour. just didn't need them even tho my hands were wet from taking them out to adjust helmet or use camera. bar mitts were great

sock liner, taped hand warmer, winter sock, winter bot took care of the feet, as per usual

found out what was stopping the computer from working



always crummy when something stands in the way when I'm getting ready. even worse is when wires are so tiny!



good to get out tho




Saturday 2/20/19 temps in the 20s but rose to 32-34 for my ride. over dressed & had to removed the cycling vest & thin fleece vest. 3 layers were fine
zip neck base under fleece shirt under Marmott jacket
fleece pants under Headwind pants
usual footwear
swapped the black, full face balaclava for the tan open faced unit

the snow covering was gone, the ground was hard, some ice in spots, flooded water crossing was shallow & one was dry as a bone! they must have cleared the culvert so the estuary could drain as designed. we had another wind storm & it showed



had dinner plans so despite it being a gorgeous sunny day I kept the ride to a modest tour around the perimeter roads & a little of the river road

12:30 left house
2:30 pm back home
12 miles
26.7 mph max (musta tucked on the hills)
8.5 avrg
1 hr 24 min saddle time

hot honey water in addition to my usual bottle of lemon water
