Was great to get out on the road bike again, Spring was finally here with strong winds. Training tires are on for a couple more months until roads are fixed up, then back to the carbon wheels with tubeless tires.
New handle bars and stem are on, looks good. Strong rain storms came last night and washed all the salt off the roads so out for a quick test ride.
Started some minor upgrades to the Bianchi. As you can see the sweat on the bars after just riding for two years is sickening, I am glade this was started. I am putting on a new carbon stem on along with carbon bars, also everything has been removed for cleaning.
Warm weather came and I got in my first long outdoor ride of 2022 in! I have been commuting most of the winter in the ice and snow, but had to take time off after putting it down on some ice.
What a great ride this was, perfect weather and hills came early in the ride then flattened out.
Since completing the GAP trail back in August, I just had to purchase this jersey along with more socks to show my pride. I loved this trip, if anyone has question, the best support I have found for the trail is the private Facebook page. The people on the page are the best and extremely supportive.
Arriving into Cleveland around 4am, and riding back to Wooster 79 miles.
Home, leaned the Bianchi against the garage and ran into the house to see Zander, I missed him. What a great trip! I can not wait for the next one.
Day 12 Last day riding the GAP. First stop was Great Falls, what a amazing site to see with the river and the working locks. While there, they did bring a boat through the lock. I have never seen this done before, it was a learning experience on how they fill the lock up with the boat in it. Once in Washington, we just did a quick tour and into the train station, both agreed that D.C. would have to be a separate vacation to take it all in. The train ride was my first that I can remember since riding the train as a kid in Durango. This was awesome that we had two beds and showers available to us and we used the right away.
