Sweets Marsh was sweet tonight.




Took the Cannondale for a ride tonight. Needed to get more saddle time on that Tioga Spyder saddle. So far it's working pretty good.
Got in around 20-22 miles of gravel, paved and dirt. Gotta love that. The trails on the dike around Sweets Marsh were just a little wet. Not much mud but the grass & weeds were wet. Good riding regardless. I went out tonight at 7:50pm and just barely made it in the driveway by the time the sun had disappeared. You get a bit more sunlight out here in the sticks than you do in town.
Have a nice weekend and don't forget to ride your bikes people.

I gotta ride over there again one of these days- Love those bars! That seat is soooooo 1984! For some reason it reminds me of sneaking over to a friends house to read Freestyle magazine. Not sure why...?!??

Have a good weekend Captain!

That seat is a bit retro in that way, Mr.bidwell. I agree.

Dirty Hunryd X was hard on me. About 15-20 miles in my left knee started hurting. Then at 30 miles in both started hurting. I turned off at 51 miles (I think) and headed for Waverly. I waited for my ride at my friends shoes store. Good ole Uncle Lorne to the rescue. He popped up from C.F. to drive me to the van at Bike Tech. I can hardly walk up the stairs to my bed. I rode farther than I had even ridden before and 20 miles longer than any ride this year. So, am I disappoined in myself for quitting? Not a bit. Sure I would have loved to complete it but I knew I couldn't.
