It's about time.


Today was the third day in a row that I was able to ride outside. I rode on Saturday, riding for about 35 miles. Sunday Dad, Robert, Rudy, Matt, Mike, Todd, and I all met up at the Brecksville Reservation and got in a 32 mile ride. Then today, Dad, my cuz Scott, and I rode for almost 2.5 hrs. riding around 42 miles. We rode a lot of hills today and this is Scott's true first year riding his bike. I tell you what, if Dad, Scott and I ride together more often, Scott is going to be rockin out this Triathlon season. He is a great runner, he is swimming 2-3 days a week and he is riding awesome! Awesome job to Scott today. He was with us on all the climbs and did some great pulling. I can't ride tomorrow because in our ride today, my right pedal broke for a SECOND TIME!!! I was so mad! I was calling that pedal every name in the book. It was a good thing that it broke with only a few more miles to go in the ride. I have those Crankbrothers Eggbeaters on my bike, since it is my cyclocross bike and this is the second time my pedal broke. The first time was the day before the first BA cyclocross race at Whiskey Island. I replaced them that same day with another pair then raced with the new pair the next day. Now today the pair that I received during cyclocross season broke and now I will have to go purchase another pair or I'll have them replace the broken pedal with a new pair again.

But other than my pedal breaking, it was a great day and I don't know, I might go for a run tomorrow. I would like to go out on the bike for a bit but yeah........

too many watts...that's why you are breaking the pedals...I just had a pair of Candy's on my MTB go out on me, so I feel your pain...I was able to get out on the roads Friday, Sat, and this evening for a little recovery spin...have been getting out on the "pit" bike...that thing is surprisingly nimble, I like it...just starting to ramp things up a tad...Have a good week.

Warranty them - Crank brothers is really good about sending you rebuilt pedals when they fail.
