Thumbs up President's weekend ride reports?

No pics to show for it, but I got out for 28 miles yesterday and another 31 today. They weren't fast and they weren't dramatic--just working on keeping the base over the winter.

But I've lived in upstate NY for 20 years now and NEVER ridden outdoors two days in a row in mid-February. Sunny both days, 40 yesterday and 37 today.

Unbelievable.

Excellent Dave- we need some good cycling content today. I too have no pics to show, but had two great days of fixed riding around the area this weekend. Despite a bunch of time off, felt very strong out there, good stuff.

graham hills early in the morning...about 35 degrees so the muck was still mostly frozen over...took a quick pic while taking a breather on the big hill

pretty sure i was the only one out there that early...no epic fails, so a great ride!

Rode both Saturday and Sunday...

... have 500 miles in since the first of the year, which is insane. That's well over double anything I've done before to this point in the winter.

OTOH, I've only been cross country skiing twice.

It's so dry. We had pantloads of rain for Irene and Lee, but nothing really since then. The riding is great now but I'm sure we are going to pay for the lack of snow/moisture this coming summer.

WL,

That is one sweet looking sheep my friend.

Enjoyed 30 plus miles on the Flash 29er on Sat. Had a week off due the worst flu I've had in a long time.

Ran 6.5 miles on the single track Sunday.

So far I've ridden an ER chair and the MD's office dealing with my wife's burned hand.

She forgot that the pan she was reaching for with the Shrimp Scampi in it had just come out of the oven (using gloves) and after getting the cheese grated turned and picked up the pan again - this time without gloves.

3rd degree burns on her palm and 2nd degree burns on every finger pad.

Fortunately the blisters are all separated on each pad and do not cross joint lines so she probably won't need any skin surgery, just a while to heal.

Appointment with hip specialist tomorrow to determine course of action for my FAI. If surgery is the direction it will be a matter of which part of the season I want to lose, early and my charity event ride, middle, or cyclocross?

FUn, fun, fun.

BK

Ski & Ride

Got a nice ride in yesterday, which is very unusual for February. Skied my arse off on Friday, which is normal for February. Its like living out west.

Bruce- sorry to hear about your wife... my wife had ankle surgery a couple weeks back so is in a cast for a few more weeks... and we have a 3 y/o, so who do you think is looking after her (gladly BTW)... so not a lot of riding for me so far this year...

BUT, I did get out Saturday for a nice ride on the Coast Hwy...

I think I may have officially Overdone It this weekend: 17 miles of solo interval training on Thursday, 23 mile (round trip) commute on Friday, 55 mile group ride Saturday, 50 mile group ride Sunday, 85 mile group ride today. I'm toast.
