I knew, through her wonderful comments on my blog, that Laura Crawford is a metalsmith and bicyclist from Long Beach, CA. But my apologies to Laura, because I never spent much time browsing her blog. Until today!
The groundhog was obviously lying, because rumor has it that its going to be nice this weekend. Its been forever since I’ve been for a nice, long bike ride – and I’m looking forward to it so much I thought I’d do a little round-up of some great bike stuff I’ve spotted around the internet lately.
Today I rode 24 miles, my longest ride to date. It was cold and windy, and my legs are tired now, but it was worth it to be out in the fresh air and scenery. I have to remember to bring my camera on a ride soon, because the farmland that I ride through is absolutely picturesque. Here’s my route, courtesy of MapMyRide:
And no, I didn’t ride on the Interstate, the road I was on runs right next to it.
My mood has improved considerably since my first post this morning. Turns out this was one of those rare, perfect snows – large puffy flakes that don’t stick to the road but make everything a beautiful sparkling white.
Plus, I actually road my bike today! Outside! In the snow! This is the first time I’ve ridden in almost two months, and it may have something to do with my good mood. It was just a short ride around town to run errands, but I couldn’t have been happier out in the snow and the fresh air. There’s this weird part of me that isn’t so upset about winter anymore.
Have a great weekend, everyone! Joe and I are heading to Ocean City, MD for our two year anniversary, so I’ll be back on Monday.
I’m doing a little research for an upcoming project and came across these amazing custom bike baskets by David Hembrow. How much fun would Grizzly have riding around in one of these?
