Went out yesterday for the best ride of the month. It hit 54*F, and I swear… I must be of european descent, because once the weather gets warm all I want to ride is my road bike. No one else showed up at the bike shop with a road bike, so I led a pack of MTB’ers to the base of Stonecoal Wildlife Reserve, and spun around while they did a tempo run up Widowmaker.

Took a neat photo out on the road, too ­čÖé

Unfortunately all I had brought with me was my cell phone. It was disappointing. There was this awesome ice tower and the photo doesn’t do it justice. Justice…. just ice… haha.

I’ve also really been thankful for the days becoming longer once again. Sunlight was out ’til like 6:00pm or so today. I can’t wait for weekend rides lasting three or so hours.

  7. Resident Benefits and Pricing
  8. LBS’s require comparatively little infrastructure┬áand make more efficient use of public services relative to big box stores and franchise developments.

  9. Entrepreneurship
  10. Local business starting fuels America’s economic innovation and prosperity. With more riders, this gives more opportunities and desire to start more bike related or bike-friendly businesses.

  11. Jobs and Wages (more…)
