New Riding Partners–David & Ashley

Today I rode the DF for @18 miles with David Bascombe and his 16-year old daughter, Ashley. I met them during the Cross Creek Cycling Club’s hosting of the 2006 Dragon’s Challenge Omnium. David is a new C4 member. They ride a Trek Tamdem. It was fun riding with the two of them. Thanks guys!


On the way home, I receive a rear-side-wall puncture on my Continental 4000. I have a road hazard warranty from the company from which I purchased the tires. I’ve sent them an e-mail. I now await their reply.

Here is the GPS stuff from MotionBased for this ride. We rode the local Cape Fear Trail and then a few local streets.

BTW, here are the Omnium’s results:

I have one more weekend to continue my training effort for the Florida Tour. Today, I got in a 18-mile DF ride. I hope to do a 30-mile S-XP ride tomorrow. This is also the day the rear wheel is to be rebuilt. Time is getting short. There is still much to do.

2006 MS-150 Bike Tour

Interested in ending the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis and riding 30, 75, or 100 miles, then join me and other riders in New Bern, North Carolina for this year’s MS-150. You’ll find bikes of all types: DFs, mountain, & bents. I am blessed to be a member of the 2006 Jewelry Boomerang Club, listed as rider #275. That means I turned in contribution totaling over $750.

8-Days-&-A-Wakeup Before The Florida Tour

I now have a bit over a week for final bicycle preparation.

The following are to be installed/resolved:

  • Install Angletech panniers & Aerotrunk–Will arrive Friday
  • Install seat gel & padding for my bottom discomfort on the factory seat–DONE
  • Try gel pads in the sole of the Lake Sandals
  • Have LBS [Kenny Green] rebuild rear wheel–Now Thursday
  • Setup laptop computer for Garmin related software.

In addition, I have to ride & eat the proper items for long touring. This weekend did not allow me to get rides in because of my support of the C4 sponsored Omnium. Here are the results.
