The Days before Mardi Gras
Mardi Gras Commeth... The American men of American Men Roofing arrived promptly at 7 am on Friday to tear off the 40+ year-old built-up asphalt roof over the back room. Considering the fact that doing so was the roofing equivalent to opening Pandora's Box, ...

Low Mileage
After last week's pretty good riding opportunities, this week is already looking really bad. When I woke up on Monday and looked out the window I could barely see the other side of the street because of the dense fog. Still groggy from sleep I made the unwi...

Unwilling Participant
I had started the week with the best of intentions. After my usual Monday ride on the river levee, I went out Tuesday morning to meet the group wearing almost summer clothes. The temperature was in the low 60s, and as often happens on a warm day in January,...

Wet Mornings
The weather around here has been all over the place lately. It rained much of Tuesday night, but when I got up Wednesday morning and saw the temperature in the upper 50s I got dressed, grabbed the bike, and stepped out the door, only to find that there was ...

The Morning Flat
I pulled the bike down from its hook and it landed on the basement floor with a sound I know all too well.  The rear tire was flat as a pancake. I hate when that happens in the morning.  With no time to change tubes I swapped it out for a race wheel and Dan...

Back in the Pack
Still not feeling quite back to normal, it was nonetheless time to get back on the bike. There's something to be said for taking some time off when you're obviously sick, but after nearly two weeks of mostly sitting on my ass I was feeling fat and soft and ...

Long Parades and Strong North Winds
The Bianchi is still kind of in pieces right now since I haven't found the time to pull the cranks off to check the bottom bracket and reassemble everything with the new chain and chainrings. The derailleur jockey wheels were a real mess, and since I was ou...

TUCA Camp Weekend
As always happens before a road trip, all sorts of complications at work and home started popping up by Thursday, and even by Friday morning I didn't know for sure when I'd be able to leave town. The roofer called in the morning and scheduled a 3 pm meeting...

Sixty Long Ones
Saturday's Giro turnout was pretty thin. Saturday morning was, I guess, the coldest we'd had this winter. It was around 38F when I headed out -- not exactly arctic conditions temperature-wise.  The kicker, though, was the wind, which was still blowing in th...

The 411 on the 911s
Despite the cold temperatures this weekend, there were a lot of people out on their bikes. I went out to the Saturday Giro Ride knowing I wouldn't be able to do the whole thing. We were having our annual LAMBRA business meeting immediately afterward, and I ...

Easing Back In
Off the back, riding easy It was around 40F Tuesday morning as I stepped out the door into the darkness. Thankfully, the wind was calm. Unfortunately my tail light wouldn't come on, but I was already running late so I took off to meet a few others at the en...

Eggshells
It's been nearly two weeks since I came down with this cold and it wasn't until yesterday that I started to feel almost normal. I ventured out, intentionally overdressed, to meet Andrew for an easy ride on the levee. The temperature was in the mid-50s, the ...
