Car Fire on the LIE!

Car fire on the LIE today. I was three lanes away and could still feel the heat like I was sitting next to a fire place...INTENSE! I hope whoever was in there got out.

Southward Bound

On our way to LI. Just got to exit 22 and already stuck in traffic...ugh.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Biking Carol, sung to the tune of White Christmas:

I'm dreaming of a gray Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know.
Where the riders clip in
And there's no flipin'
On icy roads or piled up snow.
I'm dreaming of a gray Christmas
With every spinning class inside.
Please forgive. I won't be your guide.
Oh how much I want an outside ride!

Got this from a friend, thanks Jenn!

Lunchtime Ride: Colonie Town Park

Hey Mother Nature, I punch your
20 degree weather right in the head!
Was supposed to meet a couple of people for a lunchtime ride on Thursday but they left without me so I rode alone. Trails were in good shape. Icy in some spots but not impassable. Lots of frost heave which made the ride crunchy and bumpy. The leaves actually provided traction on some of the icy spots. It was pretty cold, about 22 degrees. But the sun was out and the trees sheltered me from the wind. My fingers were the only part of me that was cold, an extra set of gloves would have made the ride more comfortable. I rode for about 45 minutes and then headed back to work. Nice to get out and ride a bit more before the snow flies.

The Mille Miglia

I've been into vintage race cars lately, mostly European. Watching the Mille Miglia: The Spirit of a Legend on HD Theater. This is like the Tour de France of Automobiles. What an amazing race.

Winter has finally arrived

I put the studded snows on my singlespeed last night...it is now officially winter. Go fourth and rip it!
