Mountain bike (FatBoy ) 1:34:00 [3] 20.2 km (4:39 / km) +214m 4:25 / km

South along the path to see how that end fared the winter. The trail is clear, but there are a lot of broken tree parts along the side. There is still a fair bit of standing water. In the mulched area it made for a bog trail.

Day 3 soloflex

Dips really strong. Upright rowing still a struggle.
5 PM

Mountain bike (Stumpjumper ) 27:51 [3] 8.52 km (3:16 / km) +38m 3:12 / km
shoes: Specialized Comp mountain

Short test of the new rear shock. It doesn’t have a brain, which was abandoned after I got my bike, but does have lots of settings to tweak. It will need a couple of good hours on terrain to sort out where I want it.

It certainly corners like a road bike on the firm setting of the main control. I have to test the open mode fine tuning and the rebound.

Fox Float is the new rear.

ahr:136 max:162 shoes: Specialized Comp mountain

Not the best time of day to go out so I plotted a route with minimal traffic. North on the river path, over to 2nd concession as far north as it goes, west to Leslie to make the turn back south.

Traffic was light but the bike part of the roads was littered with sand and gravel so I was happy to have the cross rubber on. I’ll probably leave it on this bike full time this year. I stayed on the small ring for the ride to contain the effort. All the signs suggests I’m not quite as strong this year as previous years. We’ll see how that develops now that we seem to really have spring.

Day 2 soloflex and free weights
Right should still a bit sore but range of motion feels good and strength almost back to my normal weak, old man level.

24 days later the driveway rash is finally gone from my foot.
1 PM

Mountain bike (FatBoy ) 1:33:00 [3] 25.1 km (3:42 / km) +102m 3:38 / km
ahr:131 max:160

After a morning spring cleaning the house, I opted to take a ride along the river instead of spring cleaning some bikes.

North to Holland Landing showed all of the trail ice gone, but lots of muck. I had to abandon the west side just south of Holland Landing because a new pond hard developed and it showed signs of being a new creek overflowed and of indeterminate depth in the centre. As it was I rode through some water well over my rims - with 4.8” rubber.

A bit surprised to see so much frost heading to Habitat
2 PM


Mr. Destructo

I’ve been working on converting three houses into two this month at Habitat. Today we got far enough that I could visualize what the end result will be, which makes it much easy to see what should happen next.

The biggest challenge is the main floor, which was framed as a single unit and now needs to be split in half. Each half will be come the entrance to a three story. Since we need a 2 hour fire barrier between houses, we had to break a center load baring wall. So we built new temporary supports on each side. Then cut the house down the middle, reworked the center wall in two halves (supporting an existing 2nd, 3rd floor and attic), removed the temporary walls and started putting in the fire barrier.
