Just the beat down I needed.

Six hours, four flats, lots of gravel, and Coshocton county. Now that's a ride.

Beetles tribute in Holmes county?

Sheldon came down from Vermont and of course wanted to do a cheese ride. I thought I rode gravel fast until he smoked me down a few hills. That is, until he flatted of course.

Can anyone guess where this is?

I think this sign pretty much says it all.
Notice the Amish crack house in the background.

Back in the saddle

I took 7 days off the bike. Really, a solid week I did not turn one pedal. The legs feel better now but I lost some speed. No worries, it will come back soon, hopefully just in time for the NEO Power series.

Took the tandem to the Sweet Corn challenge ride today and had a good time in the hills. It's always a fun ride in the snobbish Bath Twp. area. However I must warn everyone with BMW's not to park next to my minivan. Well, at least he's not peeing on my car this time.

Mid season update

I have been enjoying the cool summer weather and getting loads of miles in. There is still lots of gravel to be found in Holmes County, and we have done some sweet tandem rides down there. I think I really made Feeman mad with this one though. It was about a 10 mile section of HEAVY, freshly laid gravel leaving Winesburg. It was all I could do to keep the tandem upright. And as usual, if you look real close in the photo you will see Feeman coming up the hill behind us.
I been riding the Zaskar off road a good bit too. That bike has not given me one single mechanical all year which just makes riding all the better. I am to the point where I need to take a week off of riding to reset the system. It's hard not to ride when the weather is good so I bought another Resident Evil game to keep me at bay for week. Die Zombie scum!
