Thanks for that pic jmilliron. I'm so a sucker for american trains, especially the older EMD-F units.

Clearly you live in the wrong part of the country. Been roadbike conditions here on the sunny west coast a while now :wink:

Well, this was my last ride on tubulars. I love the ride they give, but my luck is just too bad. I ruin every set I buy. The last set I had, I ran over a small piece of a razor blade, and sliced the tire (Schwalbe of some sort) too wide to seal it. This was a brand new Veloflex Arenberg. Back to clinchers, unless I can get somebody to lift this curse!!

Out for a lunchtime spin today dodging heavy rainshowers not quite successfully. The last one produced a good rainbow.

Like the rest of europe, spring has yet to arrive in Denmark. Short ride on the mtb with a friend, could have done with windscreen wipers on my glasses!

It was in an attempt to hide what we in my group of cycling friends refer to as a "Ballan" :) http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alessandro_Ballan

Hah!
Good to see that it's not only in my parts of the world were we are denied the use of proper bicycles, btw. Yesterday was ok, dry and cold, and I took the road bike home from the athletics hall where we ride through winter to use it on the road this weekend, but this morning brought 5cm of fresh snow.
