Default All the way back.

I decided to take out my old friend today. My Giant Cypress DX. My Odometer has 1242 miles on it, but is really closer to twice that. It is sad for me to recall that I could once ride 100 miles and then, ride another 100 the next day. I bought this bike to do a charity ride called AIDS/Lifecycle. Yes, I once rode from San Francisco to Los Angeles on a bike over six days.

Today I rode 6.4 miles in 34 minutes. I am nowhere near where I once was, or probably ever be again. I love my bike and I do love to ride. I want others to share their experiences on a bike. Maybe I can find inspiration. I will try not to geek out too much on technical details. My bike is a sturdy, heavy, relatively inexpensive hybrid. I switched to road tires since that is what I mostly do and knobby tires are harder to roll. I have added a bike computer and a rear rack for carrying things. Yes, this makes the bike heavier, but it is a multi use device.

Attached is a pic of my old friend.
