What did you do to your bicycle today?

Almost talked myself into selling the Miyata. Took her off the hooks and around the block. Yeah... she's not for sale. Not even close. 

I do have a bad case of speedy road bike fever. Ordered a pair of 52/36 chainwheels to tide me over. I'll have them on the Wheelhouse by this weekend. Planning 75 miles after work tomorrow and a century on Sunday. 

Did the sweetcorn 50 yesterday. Was fun. Didn't crash. That's always a treat.

I put a new tube, tire and new rear brake cable on my youngest son's bike.  Does that count?

Amazing it is actually dry and dusty now.

Heading to Royalview after work (have to stop home to get the bike and change clothes).  I'll do 12-18 miles, depending on how fast I'm going, and which route I take.

Still a little timid riding the yellow trail down hill since I crashed there.  I haven't ridden the "interior" (Western) section of the red trail in a while, so I'm thinking outer loop (6.2 miles?), then red loop (3.5?), then the first half of Red again, but detour to the skills section (maybe 3 miles?) and back down yellow (another 4 miles?).  Also depends on where I park.  for whatever reason, I don't like having to take the road back to my car.  I guess I could ride to the trail, but that eats up time I could spend on the trail.

Freaking crashed at Hampton Hills. Well it wasn't so much a crash as it was I lost momentum going up a hill in a turn. Tried to catch myself on a tree. Got my left foot unhooked but couldn't twist my right foot off in time.  Tried to grab the tree missed and landed flat on my back. And slid about 10 feet down the hill. Bike was unharmed though

Threw on a 52/36 set on the Wheelhouse. I don't know what I'm expecting, but I had a spare $50 to burn. Why not?

I actually set my pressures before my ride. 3 laps on the red loop. 

Got passed by a couple of guys on nicer bikes. They did not drop me quickly enough for me to be jealous of their fitness. I wouldn't mind their bikes.

New peddles on the mountain bike. Got some 510 shoes as well. Hopefully hitting the trails tonight to try them out.

Bought 3 latex tubes at probikekit @ $7ea and GP4000s II pair @ 71$  for free shipping, great deals. 

I barely have the mold line wore off my performance bike tires and could re-mount and get a few rides out of my old gp4000s

Finally got a real bike Del Sol.

I love this bike, I just feel like I am cheating my work out.

Did my first 15 mile ride yesterday.  Heading out for a 25 or so today.  Hopefully I'll work up to be able to hit the trails in a few weeks.
