How Was Your Ride Today? Week of May 14, 2018

Here we go. A little taste of summer. I have a feeling that Thursday 12 is going to feel a lot colder than our first taste of 10s a few weeks ago. Looks like the wind is considering giving us north folk a break by Friday too. We know it's a lie though.

Nice Morning

Great ride this morning on the newly cleared south river pathway, the city did a great job opening it up, lots of people seem to be out and using it too. Getting ready for a hot ride home this afternoon.

Some of the pics and videos people have been posting lately seem to indicate that the pavement is pretty chewed up.

Yes, I did notice there are a few spots that could use some repair but I wouldn't say it was that bad, I didn't mind it with road bike tires.

I too have a road bike

A lack of suspension can be a literal pain in the butt on rough paths so that is why I was wondering.Laughing

Thanks for the info, I'll have to try it out.

Really enjoyed this week.

Really enjoyed this week. Pathways have been busier than I've ever seen them before, but I don't know how much of that is caused by the closures pushing both sides of the river together in places. 

Picked up a single speed that's been kicking my ass in Bowmont. Any tips for the climb besides booking it hard at the bottom and serpentining when you run out of fumes? ;) 

Will have to pick up a new set of locks and lights for it too, not sure what I want yet. Very different beast though, making for nice Spring rides.
