Another Bicycle Fitting Adventure (2015-03-28)

I think I got it right in the end.

Since I was focusing so much on the bike fit, I didn't get very many photos. Here are some older photos from the areas through which I passed.

Cedar River Trail (2015-03-14)

This was my first ride with a significant amount off of pavement, in which I rode along the outer reaches of the Cedar River Trail.

It rained for most of the time, and my lens and lens cloth were soaked after a while, so a number of photos are blurry thanks to the film of water. I tried to choose the best of the blurry ones so I wouldn't leave out some interesting sights. At least it isn't as obnoxious as some Instagram filters I've seen out there.

Easing Back Into Things (2015-02-28)

After not having gone on a long ride for a month, I pushed ahead. It was not an easy ride at the end.

After screwing up my bike's fit in order to get my sit bone onto my saddle's leather instead of the metal, getting myself really sick after riding with a cold necessitating a week off the bike, being too stubborn to get the bike fit since I plan to sell it in favor of something even fancier eventually, and trying hard one last time, I gave up a long ride for another weekend due to fear of injury. I did go on a sizable photo walk that weekend, though.

I put my foot down and got the bike fit the week before this ride, and boy was it needed!

Getting Back in the Swing (2015-02-14)

After my last ride left me rather ill, I haven't felt enough to ride all the following week. I managed to commute to work the second week, but this was my first long ride since then.

The last big ride ended up making me far sicker and more worn out at the end, so I decided to do a shorter one this time. I've done this leg so often that I'm not really inspired enough to dig up photos.
