Family Bike Shop

The official Family Bike Shop blog that I try to keep up to date with current events, bike shop ride info, and Team Family Bike Shop/DCMTB race results.

Rode the rollers this morning. I used to ride them a lot more often but since we have been training at the shop I have been using one of these instead. It is a great trainer but what I really want is one of these.

Anyway, I got up early to get my ride in today because I am going to play poker tonight. I was a nice change of pace. Nice to have my workout done early. Really wakes you up and is a good way start to the day.

The 11th annual Stop, Swap and Save bike swap is this Sunday in Westminster. I have a couple of tables and hope to get ride of some stuff. This a great way to spend the day with lots of like minded people and hopefully find some good deals in the process. Stop by and say hi if you go.

The hardest part of having a blog is keeping it updated. At least for me. Its not that there hasn't been anything going on. Quite the opposite. We took a vacation to Vermont to visit my sister and do some snowboading. Five days on the mountain at Killington. Lots of bike riding. And plenty of work.

I don't know how many people actually take the time to check out this blog, but for the three or four of you that do I will try to be more dilegent in the future so there is something to read or see. In the meantime here are some pictures taken with my new camera.

Well the Super Bowl is tonight. The Patriots vs. the Giants. I think that the Pats are going to blow them out and I hope they do. I also hope that the commercials are better then they have been the last couple of years. Anyway, enjoy the great weather and go out for a ride today before the big game.
