I really don't like the look of biking clothes. I understand WHY they look like they do, but it just isn't something I'd like to wear. The patterns and colors are way over the top. They're obviously designed for skinny people. And I'... Read more

Yesterday, I lightly planned a bike ride after work with a collegue. Turns out he couldn't go. And the temperature had dropped, so I didn't really have the right clothes. But my bike was already in the car, so I rode around work for a while. ... Read more
Some personal bests!

I thought I would push myself on Saturday to do my most biking miles ever. I thought that my highest was 26 miles, about 2 years ago. It turns out, it was only 18 miles, so I've been hitting my highest numbers just recently. On Saturday, ... Read more
I had a great time listening to jazz and eating asparagus.

The bad news: I’m up 2 lbs from yesterday. The good news: You guys, I had so much fun last night! My old buddy Carl was visiting with his New Orleans band, The Courtyard Kings. They played at this awesome jazz bar in downtown Detroi... Read more

I wrote a blog about the many smells of biking. But then I lost it. For whatever reason, I picked up on a lot of smells on my last ride. From B.O. to barbeque. From pot to perfume. From freshly cut grass to french fries. And I gue... Read more
I made a pitcher of iced tea.

They say that a dead starling stuffed into the exhaust flue of your water heater will cause it to not function properly. I can now confirm this is true. Of course, I didn't take off the flue until I had purchased a NEW water heater a... Read more

Yes! Finally got out on the bike last night. It was cool and breezy. I was alone, so I didn't have my daughter's trailer bike behind me, and I could really gain some speed. The bike is riding nicely after my spoke repair. Did about 18 m... Read more

Disclaimer: Some of the following is true. Some is BS, as usual. - - - I was kinda sick over the weekend. (Thanks for the oranges, friends!) Coughing and headaches and body aches. I had weird dreams. Still felt kinda poopy on Monday.... Read more
I wish I had an orange.

Hello everyone! I don't have anything important to say, as usual. Just some random baloney. Finally got my bike wheel fixed. Spoke replaced, and the wheel is true again. It only cost me $5. They must have done me a favor, that seem... Read more
No joke. I broke a spoke.

Some random thoughts. My tire had been rubbing the brake pad. I've never adjusted my spokes before, but how hard can it be? I like to fine-tune. So I watched a few videos and read some articles about 'truing' your wheels. I was willing ... Read more
My bike needs a tune-up, and I don't watch TV.

Some random thoughts... Last night, while everyone else in Detroit was apparently watching the Red Wings game, I went for a bike ride. The goal was to hit 20 miles for the first time this season. The distance isn't really that hard for me... Read more

Bad: I ordered some dinner from the (gasp!) local pizza shop. Good: I decided to walk and pick it up, instead of drive or have it delivered. Bad: I have to cross... Read more
There is no point to this post. I'm just writing.

I have a nice holder for my GPS on my bike. It lets me know my distace, average speed, amount of time traveling, and other nerd info that I enjoy. Today we biked up to the local tourist attraction Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village... Read more
