Safety Film

From 1963. 

Recognize the narrator's voice?

Wikipedia has a surprisingly detailed entry for this film.

Spring has Sprung?

Although the weather is not truly spring-like, we had a nice group today-
I counted 15 riders-and a rather spirited pace at that

Pablo and AC were impressive on their accelerations which temporarily split the group into 3 after the Russian----

Hopefully we will continue to have such impressive and challenging rides-

Equipment Lust on a Rainy Day

13 lbs.? I think SG's beeper just went off (now if he only knew where it was and how to shut it down).

The Delta 7 Arantix Ascend Road Bike. Fritz rode this and wrote about it here. You might say that lately, he's become some kind of an Oracle about these things.

Great Ride Today!!

Spring is finally in the air! No thermal wear today as a nice group started out around 8:00. Frank, Tucci, Fast Freddie, Barb, Bob G and myself headed South and picked up Eric, Greenie, Lou and the Captain - and yes, according to Peleton Rule #68, we turned around heading back up to HP. Tucci had to go to work, the Captain had to head back home after the Fort and the rest of us headed off to ride the Cemetary loop - stopping for coffee in LF.

I had 50+ miles at 20.0 mph - not too shabby for April!!!



I'm changing some of the content of the blog to make it more useful and because I can. I am removing all links to mapmyride because they are now putting in popup ads that overlay the map and make it difficult to use. If you pay for a premium membership (about $30 per year) the ads go away. Gmap works just as well and they are free so they get my vote.
