Today was a rest day. A day to let the body heal from all the week’s activities. I still managed to fill the day with bicycle related activities though.
Scott R and I headed down to the Bike Habitat to get a few things, and see what was new. Scott and I took turns on the Kona Paddy Wagon out in back of the shop. The Paddy Wagon is a single speed road bike, with a flip-flop hub that allows you to run it either free wheel or fixed. The bike was a blast to ride, and left a lingering impression in our minds long after the visit.
The Bike Habitat has a nice website. Go check it out if you haven’t seen it at bikehabitat.com.
The next stop was Marcus’s house to see phase 1 of his new pump track. Phase 1 included lots of brush clearing. I think even the Brush-Clearer-In-Chief from Crawford, Texas would have been proud of Marcus’s efforts. We helped him play pick up sticks after he went nuts with the Bobcat. Personally, I would’ve used a Daisy Cutter, but I think you may need a pesky permit for that.
After our ears and noses were full of dirt, we departed for Red’s to drink a couple pints of Icky. Once I got home, I put the final parts on the Kona Coiler. It’s ready to roll!
