But not for a week or so. So we will be riding our old bikes for a bit. We are using them for our regular long rides as well as for errands and other short rides. We'll scale back the length of long rides to fit into our done-with-the-fun-by-lunch schedule. Road bikes are speedy. The old bikes cruising speed is a comfortable 16-17 mph.
The up side to this struck us on today's ride. We cruised over rough pavement, cobble-pattern crosswalks, raggedy pavement, and patches of sand and gravel. In comfort. Let's hear it for good old mountain bike suspension! Slow but comfortable. And ever so nimble.
Makes me want to find some single track out in the palmetto praire.
