Finally went skating tonight, after quite a few months of not skating, trying to get my old-man-knee well. The knee feels pretty good. I went to the skatepark and did freestyle for about 45 minutes. I was somewhat stoked — didn’t skate too bad. Not great, but not bad. Made my 360 shoveits pretty nice and my fingerflips. Legs felt like noodles, even after months of serious bicycle riding. But they felt better toward the end. We’ll see how the knee holds up
Bike miles for July August 1, 2008Posted by concreteguy in bikes.

While I was only able to bike commute 9 times in July, due to meetings and other work requiring the use of a damned car, I did increase my totaly mileage for the month to 283. Some nice evening rides, and two 34 mile rides (one on the single speed) helped boost things up a bit. I’m setting 300 miles as my goal for August.
I’m enjoying all of my 3 bikes, spreading the rides between the Giant mountain bike, Centurion mixte single speed, and the Electra Townie 21. I probably need to tweek the setups on the first two, as my hands were kind of sore this week. Too much weight on the hands on those 34 mile rides. So I’ve been on the Townie a lot this week, as it puts practically no weight on the hands at all.
