Group Ride - Sunday 3/28 - 9AM @ the COOP

We definitely got the best part of the day.  Good 20+ miles with the group, 33 miles total with my ride into Belfast.  Thanks, Dan, John and Murray for the company - and thanks Dan for the lift home.

Check the Ride Stats page for the route details.

Single speed maiden voyage

Finally got my Frankenbike switched over to yet another iteration- this time its "single speed tourer". Planet Bike fenders, new rack trunk, have my panniers from before (not on yet), and stripped down drivetrain with conversion kit. Started out at 42/16, turned around after a mile, went home and put on an 18 cog on the rear. Much more realistic, I think. Went out the Rt 3 to Fenwick Rd. to Back Belmont loop, still snowy spots in the shade. Sunny, though! Like always, any day with time on the bike is a good one.

Ride on Saturday

I'm riding with a friend who's new to riding at 9:30 AM for about an hour and I'm looking to ride longer afterwards - starting around 10:30 AM from the Belfast Y.

Anyone interested?

And though I look like a nut in the pic...I'm really not.

Too nice a day to wait til 6...for most everyone

I can't blame anyone for riding earlier today rather than waiting until looked like such a nice day from my desk.

Either way, it was the nicest commute home I've had this year - light enough for me to take the long way home.

Met up with Dan and Ken at Belfast Bicycles before going our separate ways - maybe next time.

So if you got out on your bike today, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.  And if you didn't, well there's always next time.

New look for the Belfast Bicycle Club

So we are all busy...maybe too busy, but that's a different story.

So in an effort to keep things FRESH, the Belfast Bicycle Club is going to try it's hand at blogging.
Check back here often for ride updates, events and other club related stuff.

Hope to see you all out on the road and trails soon - Greg
