It must be the off-season.....no longer are there sunny rides on the TT bike, the Blue has been put away for the next few months, it isn't getting close to any of the snow, ice or grit on the roads. Nope, the Fixie has arrived and for the winter months I'll be pushing 46x16 around the roads of Maryland (strength and speed work in one easy go!).....so far so good, I love riding the Fixie and above all, it's a synch to keep clean and in good working order!
I put the bike together over the summer from bits I had hanging around in the garage and cheap bits I managed to get from elsewhere. I didn't want to spend too much and in the end got it together under budget (I think I just heard Sarah shout "I doubt it!")
- With group rides being off the table for the foreseeable future (my own personal choice) it's been fun to spend some more time on the #specializedshiv Time to think of an epic ride to do. . . . . #iridespecialized #specializedfans #IFB #parvillacycles #timetrial #swimbikerun #ironmantri #cyclinglife #triathlon
- Searching out some local gravel for a recovery hour this evening......Bowie Racetrack was perfect! Dead flat, no-one else around, zero cars. 128 furlongs of easy riding. . . . #parvillacycles #gravelride #cycling #ciclismo #bowiemd #IFB
- A throwback for #timetrialtuesday, my last #ironmantri at Louisville in 2013. This year was going to be my "comeback" to the Ironman distance but it will have to wait until 2021. . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #swimbikerun #triathlon #2021goals #pactimo #gurucycles #ironmanlouisville
