      That's a lot of miles on the turbo! But you are going twice as fast as I do. :-) Maybe I could go faster on a regular bike, but the folder is so much more convenient for the trainer. Still, don't think I'd touch your speed though!

      I feel sorry for you having to go to Miami while us DMers enjoy riding through mud and rain with cold fingers and toes in the dark. But I guess going to Miami will give you some tough skin for when you come back to your country of WAZ! lol Have fun you bumm!! :)

      For a semi-retired man, you certainly are busy. Glad to know someone out there knows what it's like to squeeze in a ride. (I work 7 days a week). That's huge elevation climbing in that distance Kev. Awesome

      Nicely done Sir Kev. You are getting back in form while the rest of us slowing creep into hibernation. You always marvel me with your winter rides. And even more so this time around after your epic battle. Be careful out there buddy. :)
