My Longest and Most Successful January Challenge Day Yet

The obvious reason for my great success is the warm weather MY Town was blessed with today. The temperature rose up to the mid-30’s (or should I say, the mid-1’s for the benefit of my international friends) and there was no wind. As a result, I was able to ride longer than I can when it’s somewhere around zero and windy. I frolicked in the sunny warmth, navigating the slush and taking pictures. Before I knew it, I had been riding for more than two hours. Here are the fruits of my effort:

SHimmery and SHiny with SHafts of light from the sun. (Gotta admit, this picture and the featured photo were taken yesterday afternoon.)

Back to Today: The Chimneys

I wonder what the owners of this house appreciate more–the three chimneys, or the fine view of the Mississippi River out their back windows?

PHysician’s WHeels? (Not likely. It looks like some doofus is impersonating a doctor and using his/her parking spot.)

Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

    That is a very fine collection!

    It is always a good day when 2 hours have passed in a state of flow on the bike!
