Sunday Ramble

Got up this morning and headed out around 8 AM. It was a bit chilly, but not too bad. In the low 40s.

Wandered around the town on some back streets I had not visited before. Saw lot's of interesting houses.

Saw this Xmas display, incorporating a car for sale. How innovative (and commercial!) is that?

2008Dec28 bike ride 002

Mileage for the day was 15.78 miles.

Rode 15.78 miles today, in 1 hour, 20 minutes, and 49 seconds. That's an average of 11.84 mph (19.05 km/h)

30.16 miles -15.78 = 14.38 miles till my goal of 3,000 miles for the year.

Over on fark.com someone submitted the story about the two girls on a bike trip back in the 40s that I blogged about several months ago. To think that if I had come up with a clever headline I might have had another greenlight to my credit!

Steve the L. told me about the Schwinn Paramount 70th Anniversary bike. What a cutie! No price mentioned, but I bet it is AT LEAST 5 grand!

Since Zooomr is now working, here are the images from yesterday's post.

Toyota Landcruiser.
