Weekend Update

Weekend Update

I spent the weekend in Victoria, staying with my aunt and doing a combination of tourism and bicycle racing.

For the weekend. The Victoria Cycling Festival is on the agenda. Hopefully I'll take some pictures.

See ya soon.

I'm Working On It

I'm Working On It

Yesterday was another Big Ride Day: ride from New Westminster to UBC, race for 30 minutes, ride to Main Street station, take the train home. It's over two hours on the bike no matter how you slice it.

As part of my winnings from my glorious 4th place in the hill climb, I tried out a Steamrollers burrito last night. I give it my highest compliment: it reminded me of the burritos I got in Los Angeles. I have quite a few more free food coupons for them, and I intend to use 'em!

My First Time...Trial

My First Time...Trial

As you can see from the results, I did not cover myself in glory in my first TT.

It was a short hillclimb TT up Gaglardi way, the main road leading to Simon Fraser University. 3.6 km, and it was the hardest 12 minutes of riding I have ever done. No joke, I was so fatigued from the ride that I rode home and spent most of Sunday in bed.

I wish I had had a camera

I wish I had had a camera

Inexplicably, I failed to mention it, but I've been having problems with the satellite dish reception all week. They have a menu in the reciever that you can access to see signal strength on an unspecified scale. 70-80 is a good clear-skies number; you can get reception with a signal as low as 30-something. Ours was running at 20-30 even in clear skies. Time to call the dish merchants.

A braking solution

A braking solution.

I'm using the BMX LX to illustrate a little trick I invented for getting a few mm more reach on caliper brakes.

As you can see above, I have added the spherical washer set from an old set of V-brakes to this ordinary road pad. Note the washer that touches the slot in the brake arm: it is the spherical one, and you can see the considerable angle the other washers are making to it.

So take the old set of brakes and remove the hardware:

A Robin photo

a young robin, very confused, not flying very well

This little guy posed for several photos at a range of about a foot. I don't think he was quite up to flying yet, and while I'm not sure, I think this was an immature, only-sorta-flying robin, of the type common around here (except they always have a solid red breast without the black marks on this one). Warning: bigger version is much bigger.

The Internet has many weird things. And then you find out about Silence!

Thanks, keith.

The BMX LX

Obviously Ryan had had a martini or two right before thinking this bike idea up.
