The Bikes… of course!

I almost forgot to show off the bike…

Being as that I have just found my passion and just started collecting and working on my own bikes, I only have a couple but better than nothing.

 

Bikes…

2010 Specialized Rockhopper M4 Comp Disc

2007 Specialized Allez Elite Triple

1973 Fuji Special Road converted to a Single Speed/Fixie (I will post some of the conversion later, just finished it this past week!)

19_ _ Raleigh Skyline Custom- this is the beater bike that I use to get around campus and around town for small items (will post pics soon)

199_ Schwinn Mesa- Inherited bike from the girlfriend as a commuter after my Hardrock got stolen… (will post pics soon for this one too)

 

Stolen: Use to have a 2005 Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc but it was stolen from under my dorm last year 😦

First Road Ride

I went out for my First road ride of the year. Being in Minnesota make it a short riding season but I will take advantage of the warm weather so early in the year. I went out for a ride to downtown St. Paul (east side) from school on Summit Ave in St. Paul (west side). The trail goes right along the mighty Mississippi river the whole way making for a scenic ride. I went up to the U of M first to lengthen and enjoy my ride. Nothing like having people look at you like you are crazy when it is 48 degrees out and you are on a bike with bike shorts and a jersey.

Summary:

27 miles

16.8 mph pace

Here are some photos that I took while on a quick break on the path by downtown.
