    Help me decide

    I finally went back out on a few mountain bike rides, my first time in over 18 years. I used my old 1994 Specialized Rockhopper A1FS, a relic or antique by todays standards. The first time was with a buddy for just 4-5 miles on some pretty technical single track then a group ride at night for...

    Bike Log 2015

    I finally got out on the road bike today. Usually I get at least a day or two in January or February but not this year. Took the cross bike with fenders and a good thing too, there were so many mini ponds and even moving water in some places due to all the snow melt and last night’s rain. My...

    Ouch ,1 inch of R**n for southern VT

    I'm not liking the Thursday night/Friday forecast for southern VT; 1 inch of rain, then a freeze up Friday night. It looks like it could get into the mid 30s Sat so maybe that will help soften it up? Damit I haven't skied in almost 2 weeks so I wasn't able to enjoy the recent snows. Must be a...

    RIP Mr Hoffman. Sucks! He was one of my favorite actors. I'd watch a movie just because he was in it. He took some incredible roles,and some really quirky ones too.
