1 More Before the Storm

X6 is home from the shop and feeling great. It got new brake pads and chain and all tightened up. It's shifting beautifully! I love having both my bikes feeling like new again!

I went out for a 20 mile spin on X6 this morning before the snow. It was dim, cold and there was a fairly steady wind out of the north. I thought this view was interesting, almost abstract. In the foreground is a bit of icy marsh that runs between the road and beach. The gray band of sky keeps fooling me into thinking it is the ocean/horizon! The clouds like that over the sun are a sure sign of the snow to come.

I'm not sure when I'll get outside for a ride again...I may be on the trainer some.

The trainers not that bad.... if you say it over and over, you might convince yourself. Maybe.

The trainer is fantastic if you have a PLAN and either a HRM or cadence counter or something. I use it a lot and love some of the DVD's or just do sessions with my HRM - it makes the time go much quicker. I load myself up with a Towel, a bidon (or two) and a plan of some kind whether it is a cadence plan or a HR session
