NBW Walpole/Dover Ride

The Charles River flooded over it's banks.

This was a parking lot, but the waters almost up to the road.

My best bud coming out of his house.

Time to stop and take a break.

Last day of the month to get a ride in and the weather finally cooperated. It was cloudy and 36 degree's but that would do just fine, after all the shitty weather this week. This ride also went right by my best friend's house, so I had to stop and say hi to Dennis.This was a very hilly ride for 28 miles and I felt it.Garmin Connect - Activity Details for NBW Walpole/Dover Ride

Friday Night Spinclass

The weather still sucked Friday, so I got another spinclass in. Peter was the instructor and he's my favorite right now. He keeps it sane.

Still Raining

We're still getting hammered by rain, now it looks like the weekend will be a rainout.


While the weather still sucks, I decided to get a spinclass in last night. It went a lot better because I had an instructor that wasn't insane.

Bogus Weather This Week

This is the first of a few storms that will be hitting us this week. I won't be getting any outdoor riding in, hopefully I can get a couple of spin classes in.

RT152,going over 2nd set of RR tracks.

Locust St.

Oakhill St.

Ash St.

I made the mistake of wearing one less layer of clothing and paid for it when the sun started to go down. So instead of being cold and not enjoying my ride I cut it short and ended up with 15 miles for the ride.

Tim's Birthday

We all went to the Vineyard Sunday to celebrate Tim's birthday. We all left stuffed to the gills.

John's CT RI Beach Ride

This bridge was finally finished in the Fall, so we no longer had to detour around it.

This is the real Mystic Pizza, from the movie with Julia Roberts.

John treated me to hot chocolate and a cookie here.

The view from Stonington.

Heading down to the lighthouse.

This is a view from the Watch Hill lighthouse in Westerly.

There were alot of wet roads from all the snow melting.

This is where we took our last breather, before we finished.

This was a fantastic ride John came up with. We started the ride at 9:00 and it was already 36 degree's out. We did have to deal with some wind but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. This was our first Metric Century of the year!

Rehoboth/Seekonk Loop

County St.
Chestnut St.

Arcade Ave.

Pine St.

It was in the mid 40's when I started this ride after work, so I wanted to get a little longer ride in than usual. There was a pretty stiff wind and of course I hit it at the most inopportune time, while climbing a couple of hills. Oh well, at least it wasn't freezing out.

Spin Class

Shitty weather means Spinclass time for me. I took one last night and had the instructor from hell again. It's amazing how soaked in sweat you can get in one hour.

Rehoboth/Norton Ride 31



Wheaton College.

Barbara and Tiffany joined me for the beginning of my ride Sunday. They ended up doing 12 miles and I did 31. The wind really picked up later in the day and my last 10 miles had a head wind, which always sucks.
