Saturday 1/16/10 Ride Recap

The weather finally cooperated enough to allow me to head out on the bike for only the second time this year and the first on the Lemond. I replaced the Bontrager Disc front wheel last month after a friend fell and bent it during a ride. I don't see much of a difference in the new version over the old. Plus, I replaced the Shimano 105 derailleur pulleys with upgraded Ultegra models with bearings instead of bushings from Baer Wheels. They seem to shift a little better due to less side to side play.

I rode north from my house through New Albany and out east in a loop which brought me back down New Albany Reynoldsburg Road. It was really quiet out, when the cars weren't passing, and I took the time to stop and watch Blacklick Creek gurgle through the ice. Very peaceful. I put in 26 miles and averaged 16mph. I wish the sun would have come out because it peeked through for just a moment and warmed up, but then went away just as quickly. My friends in Wheeling said the sun came out and it hit 50 degrees while they were riding.
