Nice. I'm a big American beer nerd but haven't expanded into Europe yet.

I can't catch a break!! During my nice 40 mile ride today, I noticed my front mech was rubbing, which it never has before. While getting the bike ready for tomorrows ride, I noticed this:

For those that didn't see my pic on the last page, my three day weekend started like this:

I'm definitely in need of some good luck, right about now!!

Today was my first ride since the accident in January (broke my collarbone). As my roadbike was damaged due to the accident and I am waiting for my new one, I went out for a first ride with my Bianchi Pista.
I expected to be in much worse shape, but I was able to make 23Km with 31,9Km/h average. After 23Km I noticed I was getting tired as my fitness level dropped...

First time i've tried the Pyrenean Cols this year. A nice ride over the Col de Borderers and then the Soulor. This is on the descent to Ferrier, the link to the Aubisque (the line across the hillside) is still closed.

Oh, Saturday was more like C, was just that the road ends at a small ski area which still had snowcover. The climb starts at 800m and is south facing so is pretty much the only rideable long climb round here this early in the season.
