Winter Project

Sooner or later we all regard the trainer as a winter necessity. Personally, I have been thinking about getting a set of rollers, hearing how much they improve handling and pedal stroke. Then I found this, and was filled with wonder--and dread!

Because I just can't let it go

I missed my bike all weekend.
I may have a problem.
Luckily, there's a hoodie for that:

Closing the Season

All right, sports fans, I am giving in to the voice of the people: it's time to accept the end of the season. Last weekend I had a lovely breakfast with everyone who came to the ride (it was a table for one). I am in New Jersey for the weekend, next weekend is the holiday, and I don't see it getting any warmer, so it's time.

If we have a reprieve from the cold and we can get out again, send me an email and let's set up a ride. In the meantime, enjoy the coming snow, and I'll see you in the spring!

11/15 Saturday Ride

Ok, so lat week might be considered warm when compared to tomorrow. Moving to 9:00 will only gain us two degrees, so there's really no point in starting later--especially if no one shows up. So let's see who's brave in the morning, and we'll pick a route then. Or go for breakfast... that works, too!

Later Start?

You missed all the fun-- 41 cool, crisp, beautiful miles, out to the Fairgrounds and home via Cousins Island! I, personally, enjoyed a guilt-free cupcake afterwards... you?





We had a great time, but perhaps a later start time will encourage more ridership. Would people be interested in riding at 9 or 10:00?

11/7 Saturday Ride

Sorry for the late post, but was on the road again.

Tomorrow looks to be a cold one; for the hearty, I think we should stay inland. Westbrook or the Fairgrounds seem good choices for the day. If there's anyone there in the morning, we'll choose then.

11/1 Saturday Ride

Okay... I've been down in Washington all week, and stepped off the plane today to find it's a good deal cooler here!

The weather indicates we want to be off the roads in two hours tomorrow, so I would say Westbrook, Freeport, or the Fairgrounds. We can pick in the morning, but dress for a cool ride. I've been 500 miles away from my bike all week, so I plan to lead valiantly from the rear!

10/25 Saturday Ride

Sorry... been traveling this week. How about Pinelands via Dutton Hill and Depot Road? We can modify the route tomorrow if needed.

Sunday: Bob’s Memorial Kennebec River Ride

It's not too early to be thinking about the weekend, so I wanted to a) get input on ride preferences, and b) remind everyone that the end-of-season Kennebec River Ride is on Sunday. I plan to ride that one, and hope to see a bunch of you there. It's a 10:00 start (nice and warm) up at Lion's Pride/Ebeneezer's in Brunswick, so we're assured of a great beer afterwards! If folks want to carpool, feel free to leave messages here in the comments.

Now, as for Saturday: it's going to be a good day, so we could do Pinelands, Dutton Hill, Westbrook, or even Mitchell Hill. Any preferences?

10/11 Saturday Ride



Century season is finally over, so we can return to our trypical Saturday morning rides! Cadillac featured a pouring rain start, but a beautiful end, so well worth the wet!
