My first official bike ride.

I took my new, still unnamed, bike out for its inaugural ride. I felt pretty slow. And it was cold. But it was fun.

Time 0:37:20 7:24 pace
Distance (mi) 5.04
Moving Speed (mph) 8.1 avg. 13.6 max.
Elevation Gain (ft) +504 / -502

I recorded some audio for the podcast. I haven't listened to it yet to see if it is usable.


  • Ahhh, a bike ride in February! Yeep Yeep...didn't you freeze your pedals off?

    I love that first bike ride of the season. Nice when it's over...painful when you next climb onto the saddle.

    Looking forward to hearing the official bike names.

  • Awesome! Were you going along the lakefront path or is there some hidden bike trail in the city unbeknownst to me?

    I'd never have the guts to ride downtown like those crazy messengers do...I'd be too paranoid of getting hit by one of the cabbies.

  • Yes I was on the main bike lakefront path and also in some of the other smaller paths that intertwine with it.
