    No-wuhhh! I have to play for the Thanksgiving Day service at the church. I guess that's what I get for being an organist.

    It's not strictly a biking purchase but I finally got a smart phone and have downloaded strava.

    Been kind of a busy week since I bought Bert (my new Surly Pugsley Ops) but I took him out for a spin on the Greenway on Saturday. So much fun to ride but riding through the snow and ice was like riding through wet sand. A great legs and heart workout but I only managed to ride eight miles in an hour.

    It was actually a little toasty on Saturday - 30 and quite humid and sunny - so I was roasting like a Thanksgiving turkey out there. It is a GREAT workout but when the snow is like wet sand I think I'm going to be lucky to do 10 miles until I drop another 50lbs or so. Today it's a balmy -2 (but feels like -9) so the snow should be nice and frozen for easy riding. Well, at least I hope it is.

    I downloaded Strava this weekend, too. First time out with it I didn't set it up properly and obtained no data. The second time out - this morning - it only recorded about 1/3 of my commute. I had my phone in my back jersey pocket, so I don't know if I inadvertantly stopped Strava or what. I do know that in the 4 hours after I started Strava this a.m. that it soaked up 1/2 of my cellphone battery, so I will have to be more vigilant about closing the app.

    Strava should soak up little if any battery. Since you are new to smartphones as well, my guess is that something else is going on. Maybe someone at HDCC can help. Also, navigating (vs recording) WILL eat up battery.

    I'm new to Strava, but not to smartphones. That said, I could probably compile the entirety of my IT knowledge into 140 characters, so it's not shocking to me that my rollout here has been less than smooth.

    After talking about it for years, we finally got a sewing machine. I plan to make my own Moose Mitts and essentially a kayak skirt for the back of the Xtracycle so the kids stay warmer and dryer in bad weather. Now I just have to learn to sew.

    I have purchased the Sparse Bike Lights .. from Urban Outfitters... effectively for 30% off.. which is a solid deal.

    But I purchased bike lights from Urban Outfitters for crying out loud. I am so hipster my inseam just shrank ironically.
