    Bump!
    Snow is on its way. I might have a week that involved riding and skiing. Six to ten inches predicted, especially in the area where my favorite semi-local touring center is.

    This might be a combination of menopause/lack of hormones related changes and riding together. I had to see my gynocologist about a slightly different, but similar issue.

    They basically stopped making the R700 short reach brifters sometime in the last 3 years. Because of my new position and my short and shallow bars, I can reach the brakes OK. It is not as good as...

    Took my Silque out for its inaugural ride. It was a pleasant 53-58 degrees. We started in sun, which necessitated some gear changing, but thankfully, the sun went in near the end of the ride. We...

    Yeah, I've heard the term Wilmas.
    It's not so much carrying water; I have some small bottles from my running belt that I could carry. It's more being able to access while riding. Since I am already...

    No, I did not name it. It's a Silque, so I just put the Ms. before the name. I will conveniently call it "my bike," or "the Trek" as opposed to "the Guru." Don't worry, I will never name a bike....
