Training Season

Posted in Uncategorized by metaljaybird on December 17, 2009

I have my bike on the trainer.  Rode it hard for about 15 minutes before I had to perform some upgrade work on a client’s Exchange server.  As indicated in my most recent post, I’m not much for winter riding.

Since I’ve been off the bike for most of November and December, I’m definitely getting soft.  I don’t know if a trainer is a good replacement for the streets, but it is better than just sitting around all winter.

So, while I’ll be safe from inattentive drivers, I’ll have to overcome the sheer boredom of staring at a wall.


I hibernate in the winter

Second year in a row where I hung the bike up for the winter.  Unlike some who thrive in the cold, dark winter, I don’t.

I did get a ride in last Saturday before the snowstorm hit.

Oh well, 6 or 7 months out of the year is better than none.
