Cycling: Road Time

openroadIt’s time to invest more effort riding on the road. Part of my decision is recognizing that my trail excursions are causing me more pain in my right knee than I really need. I can take long hard rides on the road and not suffer nearly as much. Of course, the real reason is that my heart tells me it’s time for a switch.

Try to understand that mountain bikes are what I prefer to ride regardless of the actual type of terrain. The frame on this Diamondback Axis is just the perfect fit for my body and my condition. But I’m sensing a call to spend more time doing tour-style riding so I’m going to order touring tires (double defense, of course). The good ones like that cost a bit and I had enough in PayPal to start with one I found on eBay ($63). Once I have both, I’ll switch over.

I’m not sure yet how it will affect the photography. Most of the time the iPhone is good enough, but I’ll carry the big one when I anticipate the need. Thanks for riding along with me!

    If you had any idea what a joy it is to ride along with you, your heart would leap at each chance! Not that it doesn’t leap when you do, at all you are able to see/feel/touch/share but just so you know!
