Road Bike Ride
After a snowy Friday night, chilly weekend, today was another beautiful day for a bike ride. I grabbed the road bike to put miles on it (goal to have it roll over 1000 miles).
Rode from the Wabash Trace trailhead, heading on the normal loop around town. backtracked quickly for warmer (and dry) gloves and take my 1pm pill.
Passed the Trail Center (closed on Mondays during winter). At Ameristar, the bike odometer turned 1000. Stopped took a couple photos. It was still at 1000 miles at Harrahs. Took another couple photos in the shadow of the gangway.
Next stop was Xtreme Wheels. A little, nagging noise at the rear wheel. Seems it was the spacer on the non-drive side of the rear wheel. Same thing had happened with the hybrid (I should have remembered).
Ended up with 24.9 miles and the road bike has 1012 miles on the computer. Mission Accomplished!
