An old tradition of mine, each trip around the sun I do a “triathlon” of multiples of the number. Today I skipped the run and swim, but got a good ride in.
I wanted to go for a ride and every bike I own needed something done:
Mountain Bike – flat tire and bottom bracket issues
Road Bike – broken rear spoke
Tri Bike – rear tire replaced and pedals back on
Cross Bike – Didn’t even bother, rear brake caliper replaced and all cables replaced (not pictured)
Bike ride friends.
They became curious and walked up to me
social distancing for the win
An early and very cold start to the day, met Emily and Ken for a ride (photo by Emily)

The day was spent choring including running to Lowes for supplies, so I took Steph’s dog – he is twice the size of Kodak
We met Nancy and Sam Berl for dinner
Nancy is always happiest when holding a baby.
A snowy evening bike ride
I was nice to be alone in the woods on my bike. The highlight was seeing what I thought was a porcupine, but research says they are not in North Carolina, so I don’t know what it was….
I knew I would finish in the dark but I was having a blast, at least till the last 1/2 hour, I was soaked and cold, as always, great to see my truck and warm cloths.
