Being between jobs, I’ve had some extra time. I have been on the bike, but not for any long rides.
I met up with Tim, Asher, and Drew on Thanksgiving morning. Timothy joined us later. It was a cold morning. My feet didn’t stay warm. Drew had painfully cold fingers. We cut it a tad short and stopped for coffee.
Black Friday morning brought me an errand ride to Jeffersonville (not shopping). From there I rode to New Albanian to meet up with the KyMBA crew, then riding back to Louisville with them. It was interesting to use the Big Dummy as a mountain bike.
Later in the day on Black Friday, Diane and I did some bar-hopping on the tandem.
Saturday brought out the battery-powered Christmas lights for the tandem and Big Dummy. Then Diane and I rode to Apocalypse for beer.
I was supposed to race Gravel Grovel on Saturday, but I had already decided against it.
I’ve been pulling domestic duty recently. I haven’t started the new job, and Diane is working full-time. Staying home, doing dishes, and spending time with the dogs isn’t all bad – especially during cold weather.

I really like the lights on the Tandem. Are you using the rechargeable batteries to power them? (And if so, how’s the run time?)
I still haven’t lit up the Tricross. I did finally shift enough crap in the garage to let Denis get the truck inside, though.
I have four total sets of lights (two on the tandem, two on the Big Dummy). They use AA batteries. I’m using rechargeables on some, and some disposables I had laying around.
In previous years the disposables lasted the whole season. I don’t know about the rechargeables yet.
The lights are awesome! I bet you get a lot of smiles from people who see you ride by.
Wow, you got way better battery performance than I did last year! I may have to find some of those lights.
