  • Posted in thread: Did you ride today? on 07-27-2017 at 01:37 AM
    I rode my bike 6.6 miles to the inspection station to get my car that I dropped off there
    yesterday. Strava made a big deal out of it and said I had my third fastest time. I looked to
    see what they we...

  • Posted in thread: Top three things a spouse hates about cycling on 07-27-2017 at 01:30 AM
    My wife hates when I crash and get messed up. In 42 years of marriage I have never missed work
    for anything but bike crashes. This last crash in April I didn't miss any work (retired).

    I guess you could call me a sand bagger, I show up on a Trek DS, a big heavy doesn't do
    anything well bike (before I started on my Fargo) and people chuckle at me and let me know that
    there are groups...

    I totally expected someone I did the DC ride with last year was a sandbagger. She kept saying

    like any real value to me.

    but when you do something dumb like hit severe washboards on a dirt road at 20+mph, Yay, I'm
    glad to hear I'm not the only one that does that.

  • Posted in thread: Post a photo you have taken. on 07-21-2017 at 02:33 AM
    I got caught in a downpour today out on the lake. I didn't take any pictures when it was really
    coming down, I was busy paddling. I stayed fairly close to shore because the waves were washing
    over my ...

    Personally, I'd much rather spin like crazy at 2 mph than push a loaded touring bike up
    anything. __________________I agree with this 100%

    All I know is, when I take a picture on my smartphone, and I post on twospike WEBSITE, the raw
    picture, it is turned sideways. If I post it raw on the smartphone twospoke APP, it posts
    correctly usual...

    My photos are right side up on my computer, this site turns them all sideways. I gave up, I can
    turn them on my computer but I don't know which way to turn them and besides I don't want them
    sideways ...
