    good hold it! 13 mi

    I feared a leg stretcher would result in me doing something stupid and I didn't trust myself to stay in line, so, to the bike! Rode the path and then stopped to pick up my kit. Boom.

      So helpful to know yourself well enough to be aware of where you can and can't be trusted! Great decision, Barb-- and nice bike miles!

      LOL! Smart kid-- where'd he learn so much about Neptune? I read that during storms there, winds reach 2200 km/hr. Hope it wasn't quite that windy in Ottawa! :)

      @Vern - we read about planets all the darn time. library books. and he also enjoys watching some short videos about the planets. he can name them all, in order of closest to furthest from the sun. he also knows mercury facts (smallest planet, closest to sun, orbits sun in 88 days). his love of space is rivaled only by his love of trains/bus/subways/streetcars. ;)

      i think you have every reason to be sad for the old tank. you've been through so much. the awesome thing is that you can STILL ride it if you ever want to! it didn't go anywhere! but i venture to say you'll be smitten with the new one. i think you're made for speed. just saying... happy new bike day!! sailing on air!

      What Ann said! You will revisit the old tank occasionally for a kick, and the new bike will just be a new addition to the family. :) SO fun! Such good times you will have!

      Strong fiver, Barb-- new shooz will definitely make one do stuff! I don't buy by color either-- I have two models I really like, and buy multiple pairs of any color for future use when I find a fantastic price. :)

      It does sound to me like you want a hybrid. I've had a Rocky Mountain hybrid for years that's served me well. Even done the Ride 4 Heart 75k on it twice. Model is the Whistler if you want to look it up.
