Note

Almost pulled a Clarence today, seemingly trying to amputate a couple of fingers while working on a home improvement project (the only power tool involved was a vacuum cleaner, and it wasn't really part of the incident; the offending item was a window sash). Anyway, no serious harm done, despite my impression in the moments after the excitement, and I just have a couple of band-aids on my fingers. Unfortunately, they are the two fingers that the reader on my computer knows about. Good thing I remembered my PIN.
2 PM

pedaling (ice bike!) 37:50 [3] 10.13 km (3:44 / km)

Shakedown cruise on a frozen lake with my wicked punk tires:


What's going on here is that I got a pair of tires, cut off the wire beads with a matte knife, then put a couple of hundred screws through the rubber. To use them, I let out the air on my mountain bike tires, slip these spiky things over them, and pump them up. Worked awesome. There was a dusting of snow on most of the lake, which would probably have been fine with regular tires, but there were also some stretches of bare ice, and I made sure to ride on those and see how much traction I had. No trouble staying up at all. There were iceboats out there as well, but the wind was a bit too light for them, I could almost always keep up, if not leave them in my dust. I had my skates and sail with me, but I didn't bother with them due to the conditions.

pedaling (ice bike!) 14:10 [3] 4.18 km (3:24 / km)

And another little spin after chatting with folks for a bit. It's interesting that AP had guessed the first one as "skating" (which I had thought it might), but got this one correctly as pedaling.
