Friday Jan 21 Biketalk

Note this is the last email I’m going to send… future posting will be on the Orlando office sharepoint site and the site. You can check one of those or subscribe, this will allow people that “don’t want to get all those bike emails” to not get all them bike emails.

TODAY ! Noon at the racks, I am going to set up to talk about cheap gear for bike riding in wet and cold weather. I brought in a bunch of sample clothing so hopefully a couple people will show up and we can talk general bike stuff too. Since it was a rainy morning today I ended up wearing my cheap suit in, and on my recent holiday ride I got some great cold weather gear experience.


Back in the saddle in the "cold"

Over the holidays I did a couple days riding around Ft Meyers/Sanibel, Sarasota  and St Pete. Couldn't get logistics together to take the train/bus so ended up taking a car and that is a mistake, spent more time in the car than anything... little interaction with others, I was even tempted to get DRIVE THROUGH FOOD! lesson learned, if you are going bike touring, don't take a car! Even though  it was only mid 40's to 50ish and somewhat windy, you can see from the pics there were still some memorable sights and times. I only rode about 60 miles over the 3 days, but saw some beautiful places and recharged with great air, exercise, and rest.
