December 5, 2020-"Get the bugs out" RIDE #2

Got in a decent test ride for my "new to me" RANS Fusion CF bicycle, yesterday, tried one on Friday but had problems with my "adapted" fenders so I reworked them and on Sat. we headed out for easy ride as Jo my wife, has been recouping from a "strained knee"! The bike is almost a 50/50 machine much more like a LWB recumbent than the Electra Townie 21d I had before. Still taking a bit longer to adjust to the "upright" seating but that will come with time and miles! 16 miles RT and the bike worked excellent so as they say, "The Transformation is complete"! We rode area urban trails over to Manitou Springs and the Skate Bowl Park, had a protein bar at a bench by the creek and headed back as the sun set's quickly these days! Sunny, 55 F, little breeze and very nice day for Dec.! The pictures are along the Creekside Trail. Relive video: Relive Video of our ride

    Somehow overlooked your comment from a year ago. Yikes, sorry! Just saw it tonight and then thought I’d check out your blog.

    Looks like your having a blast biking around on your RANs! Only complaint I had with CO was trying to get through Denver and down to Colorado Springs. The rest was beautiful! So much so, my son moved to the Springs.

    We had an amazing visit with RAN’s Jerrell and Kara in Montezuma, KS! Jerrell is an amazingly skilled craftsman. When you get the RANs the way you want it, you should shoot him a picture. They’re really good people and would love to see it!

    Dad turns 80 on the 23rd of this month and we’re going to spend the day riding 80 miles from Islamorada to Key West, FL.

Keep pedaling!
