Test ride on an Arione

by on February 14, 2011

This Ride: 20.7 miles
Month: 144 miles
2011: 604.1 miles
Cumulative Total: 6,723.8 miles

My saddle is falling apart. The Bike Doctor has a set of test saddles from F’izi:k that one can ride for a week at a time to test them out. I’ve got the Arione on the bike right now. It’s not bad, but I’m still going to exchange it today for a different one. It was a little too stiff for me and I think on a longer ride I’d go numb.

Five of us met at the Rusty Bridge this morning. The forecast was for 34°F, but it was 48!  I had to break out the chart to see what I should wear, and I still wore too much.  I think it took me longer to get dressed also this morning because I had to think about what to wear rather than just pulling on the usual for below freezing riding.  We set a quicker pace than we’ve been riding, but still had some good conversation, mostly about the 200k Dan completed Saturday and the upcoming 200k that Dave, Chip, Clif, and I are riding this coming Saturday.  We witnessed a spectacular sunrise.
