I usually drop the ChattyMcChattsers. With how bad distracted driving is, you need to be assertive. If you're not on your 'A' game, plan on a F grade.

riding over 141 people is a feat in its own. To get every pair, every time, is great accuracy.

just around a metric century.

This will probably be that wintry period of a week or two where I ride some inside. We got snow and an Arctic cold blast. The roads are too icy for my taste and it wonít reach freezing for many days.

I brought the 26er inside and put on the spare wheel with the trainer tire. Iíll do a couple of indoor rides this week. Did about half and hour yesterday. Ok, but not as fun as the cold and mud on Friday. Today I got to clear snow... a workout on its own with our driveway.

40 miles Saturday. It was chilly, temps in the upper 30s(F) and I think it maybe got to 42. Antelope Island is surprisingly 1) large, 2) hilly!

I did see a herd of 6 bison. :)

I was 20 miles into my second shakedown ride and the front break lug popped sending the break over the bars and hanging. Really surprised me since I was descending around 20+ and not using the break. Sure glad I was in flat Dallas and not on a steeper longer SoCal descent.

78 miles today, speed was subject to change without notice.

was fiddling with my gloves when a racoon waddled out in front of me but we both escaped injury.

some kid on a mountain bike was messing with me, showing me how he was faster even with knobby tires, but i busted him for playing possum. you know, when you sprint down the road ahead of everybody, then pull off real quick hoping the other rider does not see you and so they chase for 50 miles thinking they was outclassed, but i stayed with him a stealthy 15 yards back and caught his shananigans,
