Winter on a bent:

Post by Red381 on Sun Jan 11, 2009 3:59 pm

Good morning everyone.......

Here goes an effort at posting my first picture to this board... I hope this works the first time I try. This is a picture of a day last February at 31st parking lot on Lake Shore Drive. I was out for a ride with the TE......... The path is dry and clear, gotta like that mayor, he's a biker and the clear path proved it...... :x

All I can say is "Brrrrrrrrr!"

Here's a PHOENIX "winter" on a bent:



Note the horrendous riding and environmental hazard ... the green stuff sticking out of the line between the sidewalk and the block wall. We call that "Bermuda grass." Picture was taken February 3rd, 2009.


(My first attempt at posting a pic.)

Here's a picture of the post ride celebration the other day. Right after maw snapped this picture, she whopped us good for drinkin' all her beer. She can be a little cantankerous.

Has anyone figured out how to connect a CO2 bottle up to a Camelbak so we can keep the beer carbonated?

Racer46: I see that you have some of that green road hazard stuff in your neighborhood during the winter, too.

Tell me: when you ride over it, does it slow you down appreciably? It does me.

(sigh)

How I long for the easy-rolling surface of a snow packed road!

Yes it does slow you down but it's fairly soft if your shoes get stuck in the clipless pedals and you wind up doing an Artie Johnson. Rolling Eyes

No Artie Johnson's yet (we're showin' our age here, Racer46; think some of the whipper snappers around here will get the Laugh In reference?).

Luckily, the EZ Sport has regular rattraps. Think I should look into some training wheels when I graduate to a SWB with clipless?

Padded pants would suffice. I went down 3-4 times when I first started riding my bent with clipless pedals, of course it was my first time on a recumbent too. I couldn't even get started, it was a definite WTF moment.

Terrific! That means I STILL have a use for the padded, baggy shorts I bought for use when riding my Giant MTB Wedgie!

I've got a thread here and on another forum about my problems with clipless pedals titled: Clipless Pedals = Artie Johnson

I found your post here. I have to say, the comments and responses about dealing with being new to clipless pedals are priceless. I got to laughing so hard I almost choked on my Cheez-Its!

Now, whenever I get to trying clipless pedals, it is going to be EXTRA hard for me because my concentration will be ruined as I start chuckling about your Clipless Pedals = Artie Johnson thread.

BTW, my understanding is that "clip pedals" are those ones that have toe clips, made out of either plastic or a combination of leather and metal, that you slide the toe of your regular shoe into. (I have a classic Batavus Courser road bike which has these pedals.) Clipless pedals are those that have a special connection which connects into a matching connection on the bottom of cycling shoes.
