Just barely got this one in

Before the rain . . .

Do they think I am going to argue with a logging truck?
I think not!

Nothing like skinny tires (or tyres if you are in the UK) on ice.  Kinda fun . . .

The long, straight road, from the other side:

The crest of a 45mph gravel downhill in the summer.  I always wondered what it would be like in the winter, covered with ice.

Not exactly possible to take a photo while eating a power bar going downhill on ice.  You'll just have to imagine how much fun it was.  Everyone should give it a go.

Sign sign everywhere a sign
Do this Don't do that
Can't you read the sign

Tuesday and Wednesday were great days on the bike

6, but not 7

I learned today that although I can ride the rollers for six seconds with my eyes closed while listening to "Aqualung," I can not for seven seconds without sliding not so gently off the right side.  It is not clear what the outcome would be if listening to "Killing me Softly With His Song."

Since this is a post about having ones eyes closed, I think I am entitled to use a photo of Sophia Loren . . .

Perhaps if I keep my mind on business, I won't fall off?"

While my former riding companions have been training feverishly for
  TUSCOBIA and other epic events
 the Ghost bike and I have been reduced to
riding the rollers

Not as famous as MARK

OK, so maybe we are not as famous as MARK
We still had a great time on Sunday.
O2 and I managed to get in six hours of real "wheels goin' round and round" time.  Only fell once, seems like quite an accomplishment on icy roads.Billy gets the nod for "best disguised rider."
Who would have thought this masked
man is a red head?
oh yeah:
