Roadie weekend

Signs, signs everywhere signs.

Oak trees over the Mississippi River.

This house was built in 1890, nice to see somebody restoring it. Notice the wood beams above the windows.

Was a little treacherous on road bike slicks in some places. Ice patches wanted to ruin my day, or perhaps many days. One of my biggest fears is busting myself up. Wouldn't it suck to have to sit a summer out from bicycling, because you broke a hip?

Rode three hours, hard pace. Road bike speed is still a new sensation after a long winter of fat tired biking. I used a heart monitor today, helps to keep the beat up, it lets me know when I am dogging it. Lots of hills. Felt good. Every day more ice disappears. Temperatures were in the 30s. I was cold for the first 10 miles. I knew if I kept pushing the pace I would warm up. Ended up being dressed just right.
Over and out, ride safe, have fun.

You must be feeling better. Good ride today my friend! I can't wait to get out on my road bike. If the snow holds off, that might look possible for bike man and me.

I love the road.
