Friendly (2) Fixies Friday

by on May 4, 2012

Every day this month we’ve contended with rain or wet roads.  This morning was no different.  Overnight showers left the pavement wet and the newly washed fixie is now crudded up again.  A little rain or wet roads don’t stop us.

About 10 of us were out for a leisurely ride to Annapolis for breakfast.  We ate outside again, and enjoyed our time together.  There were no incidents but plenty of funny banter and gentle ribbing of one another.  I matched my previous speed record on the Fixie of 35.6 mph (166 rpm).  I’m not sure my legs can go much faster than that, although I don’t think I had any bounce.

On the ride back to Severna Park, I conspired with Chip about putting together a ride that would be a 200k from Stevensville to Salisbury to arrive in time for the Seagull Century then a 100k+ to return to Stevensville.  If done right, that could all be accomplished in about 24 hours.  I’ll shop that idea around on the ride tomorrow, affectionately known as OC-14.

This Ride: 31.2 miles
Month: 127.5 miles
2012: 1725.3 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 15,578.9 miles
