I almost got tricked by the weather channel replaying yesterday’s weather this morning.

It didn’t take long for the wind to get fierce today. I fought it for one lap around the marsh and then took a more relaxed pace dodging a big fire that showed up as I finished the lap.

The combination of increasing wind and staying out of the way of inbound fire trucks made going any further dissatisfying so I packed up and looked for a route home.

This was probably the last road ride of the year because there is a ton of salt on the road already and I don’t really like the feel of it on skinny tires.

With the temperature a bit warmer and the wind a bit less punishing, I thought I should go and close out my elevation target for the year.

Once I got north, I thought I would see what lunch time traffic was like on one of my candidate TT routes. It wasn’t bad, but each of 3 laps have two stop signs that have potential to kill my pace.

When I got home, I noticed that my new water bottle had bounced out of the holder - behind me on this bike. I correctly guessed that it happened riding quickly over all the tree parts still in the bike lane on Main Street and was able to recover it.

Day 2 soloflex and free weights

And a hint of snow out the window
3 PM


I spent the afternoon not being out in the wind.

I did get the Greenspeed ready for winter. In addition to the normal stuff, I changed the luggage system. I had been hanging small bags from various places on the seat. It was a bit too disorganized.

When I gave away the BikeE, I kept the bag I had for it. With a bit of modification I got it fit quite nicely.

I did find out that the only spare tube I had was a patch job, so time to find some new skinny 16" tubes. The Brompton uses them too, so they won't go to waste.
While charging the GlowWorm front light, I discovered that somewhere along the line I acquired a spare battery - this means I should be good for 17 hours of dark.

Peripherally related, I have a new shoe storage system. We currently have 4 different pedal systems. Flight found some interesting mounts and I installed some yesterday.

An easy ride along the river path to see what the wind had done. There was enough wood on the path that it was almost a mountain bike surface. One downed tree blocked my way south, but most of the big wood was off the trail.

At the north end, I passed three work crews taking chain saws to the big logs and running the small stuff through a chipper.

The trike was the right choice. It was still windy enough that two wheels would have been hard to keep straight. I’ll prep the trike for winter tomorrow and probably set up the trainer soon.
