6 mile round trip mountain bike jaunt. After 20 years of failed attempts to send the crux of climb, today I was able to finally get over the 24.2% grade hump. I think the commuting to work has helped.

Been an ugly cold wet week or so in Dallas. Got out for a damp 30 when the rain let up.

Bravo !
I pretty sure there are not many riders still doing c-notes on vintage steel especially in hilly SoCal.
Pinarello's are great bikes, I love classic Italian steel bikes.

101 in 40s and rain. Went to Tucson to escape the cold and that's what I got so tried to make the best of it.

Actually it was yesterday. I did the mailbox run which is a whopping 2.2 miles there and back. I lead a very restricted life and so bike riding is something I rarely get to do. It did give me a chance to test some bike-o-vations on my 2004 Super Sport. I'd added new tires, platform pedals, cushier grips and a new used saddle which made for an improved ride. The rearview mirror and USB head and tail lights also helped because it was foggy outside. I'm 63 and trying to stay with it whenever I can.
