I rode the single-speed over 60 miles for the weekend. I think it’s making my legs stronger, but the process is a bit painful.
I’ve tried to keep the bike simple, but my utilitarian nature required me to outfit the bike with lights, bell, saddlebag, water bottle, computer, and a clip for papers or cue sheets.
While working in the back yard, I came across a rather scary looking spider. I don’t know enough about spiders to identify it. Does anyone out there know what it is?
Later in the day, Tim and I met up for a ride and some food and drink. Two lugged-steel single speed bikes next to each other was quite a sight.
Sunday morning, Vic has a ride from his shop. I joined him, his son, and two others for the morning ride. Tim joined later, this time on his Bleriot. So we had six lugged-steel bikes with Brooks saddles riding together.
Sunday evening did not go well for me. I had to rush to work and help with an issue. I was there until 11:30 at night, and it left me quite tired. I’m still traveling only by bike, but it was really hard to get out of bed this morning.
I commuted to work last night and today on the single-speed. That requires wearing a backpack, but my LHT is still in the shop. I could ride the recumbent, but the single-speed is just too much fun.
