2nd month of the year, 2nd ride of the year.
The weather was perfect. And even though I actually didn't have time, I couldn't resist. I met some friends on the way, had a quick coffee, and came back with three digits on the clock.
Now I've better to make good use of all that positive energy to catch up on the things I actually was supposed to do instead of cycling.
Have a nice weekend and fun and safe times on and off the roads everyone.

It’s been a good start to the year for me. A few weeks of Aussie summer followed by a few weeks of Tokyo winter. Both are great for different reasons. I really love winter cycling, very quiet, get to see dawn without having to wake up too early. I always find myself sad when winter turns to spring. Then I start enjoying it of course!

I am dying a touch today.
I rode my commuter into work and I am sitting next to the window where I can see how nice it is out right now...
My commuter is right here... I have a private exit...


Faaaaaaack

Predicted, rainy Saturday doesn't help either.....
I wonder whether this won't stop early in the morning, though? I just looked and it seems the outlook for decent weather is a little better than it was a couple of days ago.

Yeah.... Sat afternoon is predicted to be cloudy.
Let's hope for a sunny afternoon. What is the opposite of a rain dance? I'm willing to do it on my commute home.

This is the exit of my office - I snapped the picture when we had our small snow flurry last week.
My office is a converted supply room, so I store my single speed MTB and my Fargo w/trailer here.
I also keep a spare pair of shoes, helmet and gloves in the office, so even if I drive, I can duck out.
We have about 8km of trails on base I can hit during lunch if I can get out.
It is a hard setup to complain about. - except when it is nice out.

Hey, I'm moving (roughly) to your neck of the woods next month. I hope you can show me some of these trails sometime!.

Got an early start this morning.



When the sun came up, the pace turned up. For me and the other rider, today was an experimentation day. Some tire pressures and suspension settings on newish wheel builds.
