Club Seven

A nice day for a ride. It was about 60 degrees today. I noticed many riders on Seven's . Must be the dedication of the Seven Owner that brings us out this late in the season. I would love to get a few rides in December.

one more ride

I took advantage of a perfect November morning and went for a 32 mile ride today. The W&OD was busy with lots of riders. I averaged just over 15mph. I took the first 15miles out strong, I was so tired from the first half of my ride that I found myself getting passed by a local with an open parka; it was catching a bit of wind and not very aero. It gets worse, he was on a kid's mountain bike while talking on his cell. One of the best thing's about Northern Virgina is the extended bike season unless you are from California, and then I guess it suck's when it gets colder.

Shorter days, colder mornings and buckets of rain has limited my cycling adventures. Last week, I was able to go for a short 22mile ride. As fall turns to winter, I am reflecting upon the year. I have over 500 miles on the Seven. As with most new bikes, it takes time to adjust to the newness of it all. I would describe the bike as: light, stiff, comfortable, and expensive. Only one word can describe the whole experience and that is amazing. Thank you, Seven Cycles.
