Tuesday....

G78 X 15 studded snow tire. Wonder how long it's been there?
Wet trail....
I think this might be the guy that got lost on TI v.3....
Wet gravel. North on Ford Road....
Pretty good shape....
Mooooooo.......
More gravel....
The maintainer is out scraping the roads....
Yeah, we have some weird ones in Iowa too....
"You shot an arrow....through my heart...."
Ride safe.
Peace out, yo!

Mr. Blue - That is some really fine looking colors you are wearing. I'm looking forward to riding beside those colors this summer - Friday would be a great opportunity - Friday night recovery ride hasn't officially started, but it could. 6:00 at the shop.

I went to school in Iowa. Forgot about those gravel farmland roads. Cool pics. Btw, thanks for the help with NYC Bicyle Bastardizer. That was fun.

Are you running cross tires on the Colnago? That is a lot of gravel riding.
Or is the new pavement in front of your house the only asphalt in town? :^)

the asphalt in front of my house is about the only GOOD asphalt in town. yes, cx tires on the cx bike. easier on gravel than the skinnies on the other bike.

Blue, paraphrasing RATT leads to other phrases from the same song that could be taken in a cycling frame of reference: Out on the streets, that's where we'll meet... Round and round...tighten our belts, abuse ourselves...I've had enough, we've had enough...Iknew right from the beginning, that Blue would end up winning! Any of your crew racing Decorah? I may or maynot? Later!

I can't believe no one has commented on this: That you actually walked over and looked up the size of that tire.

Now that is attention to detail! ;>)
