I came home from work to my new SS Specific Industry Nine Torch wheels on Friday. 32pink spokes with pink hubs and I9's new Trail rim in silver. Anxious to have them ready to go for this weekend's 6 Hours of Warrior Creek, I went ahead and stripped the Pink I's of their rotors, swapped over the Endless cog, and mounted new racing rubber.
To Home Depot should be good enough.
Amelia Island. Just six or so hours away. The Pie likes it because it's warmer than Charlotte, quiet, and then there's that whole ocean thing. I find it one of the more tolerable places to visit if you must be near a large body of water on the East coast.
I'll stick to bike related activities and spare you all the details of a Dillen family vacation.
Upon arrival, I was released into the wild. The Egans Creek Greenway is right behind the hotel, so I went out for a mild, alligator-free spin.
I guess that's the price you pay for modern conveniences.
Not satisfied with my total time on the bike and not willing to give the trails a second go around, I headed out and in a northerly direction.
Not much to see. Just the world's most expensive useless plot of land.
All in all, a vacation success story. Family time spent, bikes ridden, nature observed, local economies stimulated, somewhat adherence to my beer/protein/vegetable diet achieved.
The "season" starts in two days.
