Where the cold at?

It's that time again kids. What time you say. Why, time to catch up on my weekend cycling adventures. Since my last post about January riding, we have rolled over to February and some killer weather. I'm talking shorts weather when it should be bundled up inside with soup weather. Below are some thoughts, photos and miles from the last three weeks...

- The chopped tandem seen below was the creation of a new to Richmond resident by way of Georgia. He was on his way to Carytown to holla at some redneck women. Before he left Re-cycles though he let me roll down the sidewalk on his new ride.

- The river crossing seen below was care of the James River Park system closing the southern Belle Isle bridge with barricades and police tape. So, Grant and I got to forge the river on the rocks. It was not a quick detour, but it was fun despite my fear of slipping in shoes made for clipless pedals.

- Three weeks ago I had not been to a Bill's Barbeque in almost five years and Grant had never been. Three lunches later and we are veterans of the franchise, who enjoy the finer things in life like $2.39 hot sauce poured from a milk jug.

Total January Miles: 69.72 miles

1/31/2009: 13.73 mile Northside to Shockoe Bottom
2/7/2009: 23.26 mile Northside to Riverside Loop
2/14/2009: 14 mile Northside to Fan Loop

Have you tried the hot sauce on non-Bill's Barbecue food yet? How was it?

Not yet, I think I am going to try it on breaded chicken tonight.
