Aw Yeah, $240 Worth Of Pudding, Continued…


January 2012

On checking the weather yesterday, which showed a spot of snow after the deluge of rain stopped followed by a glorious day today (at 40 degrees F to boot).  I envisioned an excellent ride on my new bike as I drifted off to sleep last night.  On waking, much to my shock and chagrin, we got a couple of inches last night.  The roads were covered and I figured it was unlikely that I’d get out this afternoon no matter how nice it was.

I was mistaken.  The roads dried out at about 3:00 this afternoon.  I just got back from a nice 14 mile ride on my new bike.  I averaged 18 mph with a killer 10-20 mph head wind/cross wind for most of the ride (3 of the 14 had a tail wind), so that 18 was pretty good, not to mention I spent a few minutes stuck at traffic lights.

In  any event, that Trek is one great bike.  Everything fit so well and the bike was so much more forgiving than I was used to with the aluminum Cannondale…  and quiet!

Next season is going to be fun – and I’ll be going into it in the best shape I’ve ever been in.

Tally for the week is 75 miles so far, with a 7.2 mile run due for tomorrow.

Tally for the month:  284 miles.

Total Calories burned for the month:  11,376


  1. Hey Jim….Great biking over here where I am….close to the coast for some fantastic winding coastal routes and close to the hills where we have Glentress—Innerleithen which is one of the best mountain biking areas in Britain

      That’s sweet! We don’t have anything like that within a three hour drive of my place…not to mention the weather. 0 degrees C, 40 km/h wind from the west with snow. Running would have been nasty today if I hadn’t been in such a good mood. In fact, it’s funny how that works. Good riding.
