Thursday Night

Pleasant ride tonight. Quite strange with daylight savings having been moved. Not used to riding in daylight in November. Other then that a nice with no problems. Was in the low 70's so the speed is up compared to earlier in the week.

Friday Morning

Nice ride but another cyclist almost crashed into me this morning. I should have expected it. Especially since we are now back on Centennial Campus which is part is NC State University. But here is what happened. Cyclist on sidewalk passes me slowly then as he gets to a driveway jumps back into the road suddenly realizes that I am am there and hits the curb trying not to hit me. bounces off the curb back at me. But by this time I had started to move further out into the lane. This idiot never even looked to see if anything was even there where he was headed. As I pass him I said you should look before you turn don't assume there is nothing there.

Pleasant ride today. Nothing really happened on the ride in. I'm not complaining it makes for pure enjoyment when this happens every day for so long that you can't remember the last time someone hassled you! Of course lets see what happens now that I have said this.

Well this is definitely a faster ride to work. My averages are up across the board. Even the yearly average has been slowly climbing. But then there are 7 months of rides already in for the year. So for the yearly average to be rising I would have to be moving faster.

Well It has been one week since my job location changed. I know no entry even saying we were moving. But my company moves often. This is my 5th location with them in 9 years. We move on average every 2 years. Sometimes less sometimes more. Technically it just down the block from where we were 1.5 years ago. They have spent over 1 million dollars moving us since I was hired. It is quite amazing how much money they waste. The good thing about the move is it is rolling hills that don't seem to slow you down like the hills going to the other building.

Well here is another post. I sure have been lazy about this thing. I hope to get better at updating it again.

It has been windy the past couple of days. The temperature has been rather cool too. Especially after we had a week of 80's.

A water tower that has been under construction for a while now. They are finally getting close to looking complete. I'm sure it is no where near complete yet. But it has been interesting watching it being built day by day....

The reason why I HATE bike lanes. See all the sand in the BL? You can't even ride in it. It is way too dangerous to ride in that much sand.

Wow was it ever cold this morning. Maybe for you northerners this was not that cold but I have lived down in the south for 10 years now and cold sure is different now. 20 degrees. Not the coldest I have ridden in that would be 17 degrees but that is close. And that was about 3 years ago.

Looking at the weather report it does not look like it will be much warmer till Friday. Lets hope it is a bit warmer in the next day or so. Cold is a challenge but I love to ride in 105 I hate to ride below 30.

Nice day to ride. A bit chilly but other then that it was a fine ride. I have now completed my collection of work stands by acquiring a truing stand over the weekend. It sure is nicer then using the brakes to true a wheel.

Woke up to snow. About 1.5 inches fell then it changed to rain. Still rode the bike to work since the roads were basically clear. Some slush but no traction problems. The bike was iced when I arrived at work due to the rain freezing on the bike but just a light coating of ice. So I brought the bike indoors today to let is melt down and be comfortable today. No pictures since I did not want to subject the camera to the rain/ice conditions.

Welcome to the new year! Yes I'm still here and still riding. I was just being lazy at the end of last year and was not updating this very often. I will try to update this daily again. I took the camera this morning so I have started off right with pictures. I also have to say I LOVE Firefox 2.0. The spell check feature alone is worth anything!
