Who Wants One?

Boji Team Kits?

Biking with the Bride-to-be!


A great afternoon to leave the wedding details in the house!

Status of bike trail on March 31


With the 70 degree weather today, I was surprised to find the trail south of the YMCA still clinging to winter!

This one I saw in time...so know they are out!

The second one I saw...I split the difference with... chatting with loveall is thinning the snake population in the county!

Spring is Here!



Robins... pairs of Geese... sickly white legs... it's official!
ps - sorry you had to see that.

Best things about Spring Cycling

-Dodging 1st year squirrels
-Drivers distracted by looking for Robins
-Robins
-Mud, water, gravel and dry pavement in the same 1/4 mile of road
-Loose road sand about mid corner
-Seeing the geese and ducks pairing up
-Lakes turning dark as the ice melts
-Riding trails you were cross country skiing a month ago
-Seeing if your shorts still fit (Maybe that's just me)
-Learning where the new potholes and road cracks are
-Putting the trainer/rollers away

Pay attention out there...

That was close!

Boats on the water!

The dnr seems to be fishing early this year! I also saw a guy out checking nets in chest waders at angler's bay and trickle slough.

Come on over for Sunshine Rolls!

The Sunshine Rolls (caramel pecan rolls) will be coming out of the oven at 10 a.m. for any of you biking by this way....stop in and let's roll!!

More wendell berry to draw you out...in...

IV

The woods and pastures are joyous
in their abundance now
in a season of warmth and much rain.
We walk (ride*) amidst foliage, amidst
song. The sheep and cattle graze
like souls in bliss (except for flies)
and lie down satisfied. Who now
can believe in winter? In winter
who could have hoped for this?

A word of caution from your friendly, neighborhood spiderman:

The big dig says: use brake not brake(s)...Use your legs to slow down

riding the loop to jackson today...i had a wendell berry moment


1998 sabbath poem V


In a single motion the river comes and goes.

At times, living beside it, we hardly notice it

as it noses calmly along within its bounds

like the family pig. But a day comes

when it swiftens, darkens, rises, flows over

its banks, spreading its mirrors out upon

the flat fields of the valley floor, and then

it is like God's love or sorrow, including

at last all that had been left out.

I honestly don't see what's wrong with it? Bikes in the front hall...well it's just natural...

I am sure this also falls into the "jane it could be worse"
Category...i do have to say...i feel for jeff. for my money, his stock has just gone up to break an all time high!

Jane, which one would you rather have in the entry way?


Recognize the lake??

Need some help Bloggers!




I need some help settling a small domestic dispute. If you have been to the Loveall mansion, or as can be seen in pictures, our entry way houses a wonderful curio cabinet and, at any given time, a few bikes as well. I think it classes the place up, but my beloved has some funny ideas about sporting goods and living room entry-ways not mixing well (I know - wierd).

Anyway, she has been talking about moving the cabinet to the other side of the living room and today a flash of genius hit me and I had a vision of moving one of our 2-bike stand up racks to the space currently occupied by the cabinet! Bikes out of the way but immediately accessible and displayed as art when we are not using them. A clear winner all the way around. But alas, my wife lacks my artistic-practical flair and has not embraced the idea to the fullest.


So, I thought who could be better to convince her than the local peloton? Please post many positive comments to help this incredible idea come to fruition! Thanks in advance.

The loon lake run-off


Is impressive!

obtw, i finally got woody out for a proper ride.
couldn't resist a shot on each end of loon lake...
...and the sign...
for some reason the colors really grabbed me--
perfect color combo for
a tractor, golf resort signage
and something else really special...
any guesses??
