flexibility 24:00 [1]

I have the Brompton, but the roads are quite narrow and twisty and the wind is 50km/hr with gusts to 80 so I might sit the morning out. There’s always the holiday market.

Hotel room is quite small, as is the exercise room with weights but nowhere to use them.
But by dinner time we should complete the ruby quest.

Mountain bike (Stumpjumper ) 1:37:00 [3] 27.4 km (3:32 / km) +73m 3:30 / km
ahr:134 shoes: Diadora Polarex Plus

3C river ride, basically taking a 20km detour on the way to pick up butter tarts for Frances’s youngest (and Mrs).
The frost was heavy enough that parts of the trail were quite slick. I was glad that I made a last minute switch from the Greenspeed to the mountain bike.

The new ‘bridge’ at the north end is super slick when wet, so I’ll have to pay attention to that. It’s design also lends itself to pooling water so it is a good glare ice candidate that could wash you into the river rocks fairly easily.

The wind started to pick up enough coming home that it blew my shopping bag of tarts into the front wheel a few times - it was pretty hard to hold the bag out at arms length.

There was enough salt out that I brought the Greenspeed in for the winter. It doesn’t fit well into the bathtub, so might not be as clean this winter as most.

Spent the day fixing baseboards. For reasons unknown, the mitre saw had to be on the floor so there was a lot of squatting.

Translation of my bike names:
Big Unit: 29er mountain style 1 speed, usually set with free wheel hub because gearing is to small for my legs to keep up on down hills.

Goldie: gold fixie built on a KHS frame.

Greenspeed: X5 steers like a go cart and is the most fun you can have on a pushie. It is a bit to short to be road safe.

Smokie: Specialized road bike: S Works SL2, full dura ace, Zipp 404

Stumpjumper: what the name says, S Works version

Cross Bike: This is a Wilier Cross bike my wife bought me as a spare. I run it with knobby tires and egg beaters in winter and for summer switch it to road tires and speedplay zeros. It has a less aggressibe setup than Smokie.

Vinnie: mid 80s mountain bike. No suspension. Mostly original parts, though I changed the bottom bracket and replaced the pedals that had smashed into too many rocks and curbs. I use this as a dirty bike - bad weather, rides the roof of the car to far away places and generally gets all manner of abuse.

I'm not currently using any of my other bikes for training. I have a write up comparing these, a BikeE and a Bachetta that you can read using the link below.
