Just Checking In

Took a break from my recent frenetic ebaying today to ride out to Great Falls along the Potomac.  I rode this bike (cheesy cell phone pic):

This is a nice forty mile jaunt from my home, at least the way I go.  It finally cleared up today, the past few days have been misty and threatening, which tends to keep me closer to home on the bike.  The miles just roll off the Fuji America and with 25c tires, the pace is fairly brisk.

I've been pretty happy with the 25c Pasela Panaracers on this bike.  They are even fairly serviceable off road so long as things don't get too ugly.

This is Wide Water, an area of the C&O canal just downstream of Great Falls:

It never ceases to amaze me that there are scenes like this just outside (and sometimes inside) the Washington DC Beltway.

Dimming The Lights

Between the warming weather and my various preps for my family's partially completed move to Japan, I'm finding much less time to blog.  As much as I like writing about bikes, riding them takes precedence when short of time.  And I am finding myself increasingly short of time, as I am liquidating a household full of stuff and then the house itself.

That doesn't mean there won't be any more posts, just that they will be less frequent.  I did take down the "Show Us Your Fujis" feature, as I am finding that I do not have time to post all the content that readers send in.  So it really isn't fair to readers to leave that up.

Well, I've got to wrap this up if I want to get any riding today and post a bunch of new ebay auctions...
