To think this is what I had to look forward to during Ragbrai.

Sunday, July 15, 2007


Cowbell & I are driving to Spencer Saturday to ride the first day backwards. Currently twisting Pete's arm, 'cause we know he'd rather ride than sit in the Penske truck up to Rock Rapids.

Breakfast Ride

T&T1st day of hills for the mrs.
Cowbell on the single... 42:16 did him good all weekend

Followed the Good Enough up with breakfast in Waterloo. The lovely Mrs. 2wheel came for her first Sunday morning. She did great... she's ready for Ragbrai.

'74 Hearse...

This is Team Flashback's official sag vehicle.

Good Enough

I love roads like this

Cap'n Cowbell. Minus the cowbell

Soft stop in McClelland

Nice turnout for the tune up ride. Not the 110 degrees it was last year thank goodness, but the hills didn't move an inch... they're still right there. Home brews and beef sandwiches were delish... thanks Kent & Deb...

A little short. (on miles)

Well the goal was 200 miles. I got in 168, because of last Tuesday's rain ride I second guessed myself and didn't ride with a sever thunder storm warning over head.
As Murphy's law goes no rain or bad weather. So I did 94 on Thurs. (47 miles each way).
The kids had a Dr. apt. on Friday so I drove in and road back 27miles and "the wife" picked me up @ cooksville. Rode in on Saturday A.M. and drove home.
NO riding this coming week headed to the land of OZ. Planing to stop by and check on Capt'n in Alma. Just a quick Hi and By!
Till then, Peace and Grease.

Wisconsin Commute'n

I've been riding my bike to work! Rumor has it that "the wife" has a Boy Friend! And this way she I won't just show up at home unannounced. For what ever reason I get to ride!
Last Tuesday was the first and I had some issues. You can read about it here if your want a good laugh. I got in about 190 miles last week and trying for 200 this week. Not much of a goal but I like starting small.
Ride On!

Roll Call

Kent's Good Enough ride is this Saturday. Repeat - this Saturday. Bring Beer. Oh - and bring your bike.

Also - I need to hear from Jay and Bob to pass along plans for riding ragbrai. What's up gentlemen? Whole weekin' it like the Flashback crew? No excuses - Mrs. 2Wheel is making it!

Free Parking

There's another commuter waaaay up in front.
In the covered parking garage, hitched to some crazy pipe.

Hard time at Folsom.

The ride in with snapshots of my super-secure bike spot. You need keycard access to get in the door. Or a big truck with a big chain.
