RIding at Last!

Wow, I didn't realise that I have not posted for a couple of weeks.

Well Easter weekend we went up to Grand Praire to visit some friends and ride around town. They have a wonderful bike path system through a winding creek bed that is almost the whole

length of the city 18 km or so. So Sunday I hoped on the burley and away I went. I got lots of looks and positve comments, did a total of about 45 km all weekend.

This is a pic of my friend Ken and I.

I tried his Mtb: first time I was on a df for over 3 yrs. Why anyone would really WANT to ride one of those after riding a bent I don't get.... things get in the way or mashed...
Anyways Ken tried my burley and was astonished at the lack of wind resistance and the speed at so little effort. Then on the way home I crushed him and just left him in the dust. My that was a great feeling. I think he is seriously considering the "bent side"

Today was a great evening for a ride went west down the highway and back for a 20 km ride in 50 min. After reading the comments on BROL tonight about commuting, maybe it would not be so hard to ride the 18km to work and back a couple of times a week. hmmm
Well got to go,
Ride fast, ride comfortable, ride a Bent!
