Trek Lime

I purchased a Trek Lime for my wife. It is a great bike for the non-techie bicyclists. She didn't like to shift gears and the Lime was the perfect bike. The Lime has a dynamo in the front hub which charges the shift box located under the bottom bracket. The shift box is connected to the three speed rear hub via cable. The shift box has a sensitivity setting for shifting points. When you pedal the shift box charges and shifts the rear hub when you reach certain speeds.

Tour de Grandview

My wife and I stopped over to the Tour De Grandview on Sunday. We went down the hill leading to the start line. We saw the end of the first race and the first couple laps of the second race. The peloton was flying up the hill. Good times.

Rode 50 on Saturday

Tried to get into a group ride with the CRES Cycling Club but I was too late.

Rode CherryBottom north
Little Turtle Way
Longrifle Road
Ulry (north)
Central College (east)
62 (north) (very scary)
Rode around Johnstown looking for a non-existent Cracker Barrel
62 (south) (very scary, part 2)
Duncan Plains (west) very nice road
Center Village Road
Red Bank Road
Sunbury
Big Walnut Road

Then it gets a little sketchy - I followed a trail south until it got too confusing.

Schrock (east)
S Hempstead
Dempsey
