I just removed my Cateye bike computer – first time in maybe 30 years that I haven’t had some form of dedicated magnet-sensing bike computer mounted on my bike. Now, it’s iPhone + Cyclemeter + Wahoo RFLKT. Seems a little excessive, but I’d been tracking rides using Cyclemeter anyway, so the dedicated RFLKT screen means I don’t have 2 gadgets tracking the rides…


just slapped on a fancy new 45nrth xerces tire on the rear wheel of my trusty kona dew fs winter bike, to replace my now-janky schwalbe snow stud. the new one is thinner – 700x30c rather than the 38c I had been using in the winter. and 140 aluminum carbide studs. should be fun on the icy morning rides, while still being fun on the melty afternoon rides home 🙂

2012 by bike

It was a great year to ride. 2 rides to the summit of the Highwood Pass. The Banff Gran Fondo. Lots of mid-sized rides in rural Alberta. Riding from Canmore to Banff with Evan. So good.

2012 ride calendar

(every December ride was on a trainer in my basement, sadly. except for the 29th, which was a chilly winter ride with Evan)

And, the traditional every-100km-photo series, with 51 ride snapshots for 2012:

2012 100km

I also have a set of photos taken during the various rides from 2012. Lots of great riding in there.

Hoping to do more longish rides in 2013.
