A Bad Day of Cycling

The bike gods were not kind to me to me today. First let me clarify, a bad of cycling is when you don’t ride. I’m not sure it’s possible to have a truly bad time when you are on a bicycle. As the title dictates, I didn’t get a ride in today. Go ahead and check my strava page, no  ride…

Last week I sent the fork from my mountain bike back for a warranty issue that I was concerned with. Today I heard back and my warranty claim was denied….

I ordered a couple parts from a mail order site and the package arrived today and the wrong item was sent by mistake.

I wanted to change the chainring on my single speed and the bolts were seized pretty good. I went down to the local bike shop to see if they had chainring bolt tool, which they did. However still no lock, the bolts are on there forever.

By this time it was dark and no ride…

Oh well, live to ride another day right? I guess now it’s time to shred a little guitar and research which fork to put on my mountain bike.

Fall Riding

The race season is winding down, the temps are dropping and the days are getting shorter.  Fall is here and it’s time to get out and ride. But wait, you’ve been riding all year?  I don’t mean training or logging miles, I mean actually get out and ride because you enjoy it. Instead of racing Strava segments, attacking climbs and pushing for 10 more seconds in zone 5, try taking a single speed down a gravel road. Feel free to stop on the side of the road and admire the scenery as the few weeks that we call Autumn are going to be gone soon.
