Ever been on one of those rides?? (TOK -- today i understand your post)

Last year i thought riding this tower road/skyline drive/dinosaur park ride was easy fixed...this year i hit a wall! just prior to this shot, i had the sv over my head ready to launch it into the abyss...then i realized it wasn't the bike--i am still recovering...

Some days are like that

rain ride.jpg

If i have said it once--i meant it: rain rides are under-rated! Anyone riding after work?? Thinking a lake lap is in order!

hogsback heaven - happy first day of spring!


The mud bath is ready and waiting! my mom wondered if i was ok since there has been such a posting ban and gave me the clearance to buy more memory! ...of all the bikes i have tried and all the crazy builds to chose from...the white industries double double on the surly pugsley is probably the sweet spot for me!

river road return.jpg


The riding partner i met assured me -- you can beat google...just run small and fast the secret back way!

Return tailwind is nice-closing in



Return tailwind is nice-closing in on alpha road already! ...and the openwater at sand bar beach is hard to resist...

Spring Goodness!

Solo Jackson on a windy day - Strong Work Mrs. Webb!



Random shots from last week... The fisherman say the lake still has 20" of ice but I'm not sure I buy it. You can kind of see dozens of shacks in the background. The mink on the grade seemed to be doing better, though the fish he caught is pretty small (the shiny dot just right of him - sorry no zoom on the phone camera). And as happy as I am for spring, I'll miss the pugs the most!

one thing that i really love about spring riding



the urgent calls for help! on the return trip from jackson into a strong south wind...provisions and a freewheel were requested for roadside assistance...my reply: "with pleasure"!

fixed pfleugger friends.jpg (able to get one last post in as spidey by shrinking the picture and autoblogging)

Jeff stopped over on the fixie and i had a chance to give llew a try with the nemesis hoop flipped over to the fixed side! Glad we had tailwind for the fixed pfleugger climb! SO LONG CYCLING THE LAKES...AND THANKS FOR ALL THE FISH! yfns

fresh start





Since i can no longer post as spiderman...i have reached my maximum capacity--i thought i would answer he-shews question: what would you do (actually a facebook question) by posting one of my own. first off...if i came across a flood or a patch of ice on the trail...i would ride through it and then blog about it! second...what would you do if you had exceeded the maximum capacity of your blogability?!? either way, it seems kari should be seen texting her way through our ride to taco house yesterday. if you have a chance check out her words widely webb (www.spiritlakehighschool.blogspot.com)



pretty good story about riding, imho!

Even though warmth quickly comes

Ice doesn't thaw at 25 degrees F/ -3C...i do like the way ice crunches under the nemesis hoops however!

19.6 degrees

Don't forget your gloves and goggles!
