Why I like Sonic as a bike destination!

Sonic is a very good place to ride a bicycle. They have picnic tables, slushies and they are pretty much everywhere that I ride. Yum a cherry lime-aid!

ArtistCarola has a Showing!

My favorite artist (my wife Carola) is having an art showing at a local coffee roaster/shop in the north Fort Worth area. She and I will be there displaying some of her paintings, drinking coffee and listening to the music of Ebenezer.
   Dunn Bros is a small coffee shop with a relaxed atmosphere and good coffee. They roast their coffee on site, so the coffee is always fresh.

See you all there!

My Wife is an "Aero-geek"

My wife does triathlons. I've done a few, but she is more into it than me. It was time to equippe her road bike wit all the "Aero-geek" accouterments. Bernie at Trinity Bicycles hooked her up with a Syntace base bar, some cane aero levers, Syntace aero-bars and Dura-Ace ten speed shifters. She says that the setup is very comfortable and I think she feels faster. I haven't gone on a ride with her to see if she is indeed faster but the bike does look like it is.

Riding in the rain is fun!

It is always a delight to get to commute in the rain. It somehow makes me feel more connected to nature.

Rain   by Shel Silverstein 

I opened my eyes

And looked up at the rain,

And it dripped in my head

And flowed into my brain,

And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can't do a handstand--
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said--
I'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.
