homegrown gets some mileage

the old girl is still a useful machine. some slicks and a rigid fork make it a great commuter.

monday night when the beautiful mrs k and i got home, it was still in the high 40's even though it was completely dark. so i slapped on the nite rider and headed out. i did my usual loops around south city and made a good 20 miles out of it. the wind was atrocious. great in one direction, wicked in the other. great ride.

this morning, i totally expected to ride on the trainer. the forecast was calling for rain and whatnot, but it was only mildly damp and still around 50 degrees. i busted out the homegrown again and battled the crazy wind for another 20 miles. a little splatter? sure, the old girl can take it.

now, the wait begins for some dry earth. i feel a mountain bike ride coming on....
