A good ride February 18, 2008

Posted by concreteguy in bikes.

Rode the new Electra Townie 21 from our house, down the Whiterock Creek Trail, to Whiterock Lake, and back today. 23.3 miles. 2.25 hours. Not the fastest ride ever, but the first time I’ve ridden that far and actually seen my surroundings the whole time — thanks to the Townies killer upright geometry. 

The weather was great, but not many people were out on the trail. I guess they were deterred by the yesterday’s rains, which left a few spots covered in slick mud. Great for having a nice concrete lunch faceplant, which I avoided with the Townie’s nice fat tires. Rode through some water too. Got the new bike nice and dirty. Time for some fenders. A good ride.
