Video of my first ride of the year!

I know it's a bit vain, but here's a video of my first ride. Not everything was well with this ride. The bike was making a lot of noises, thus the musical soundtrack. It needs a major tune-up! Also, the LSCA display was showing kph instead of mph and showing excessively high wattage levels. It was showing almost 4,000 watts at times! There are also problems with the video as well since it's the first time I've tried to upload a huge (2.5GB) movie up to Youtube. I had to compress it horribly to get it to upload under 2GB. I'll learn more as I do it more often. Hopefully, things will improve after a visit to the LBS.

Anyway, here it is. This is down the street from my home on the Rock Creek parkway.

Weather warming up!

Spring is finally arriving here in the Washington, DC area. I'm looking forward to getting back on the bike, hopefully by this weekend. I've inflated the tires and checked the brakes. Everything looks good. I need to check the batteries and try out the new LSCA in the real world. I couldn't find my Bobster Spektrax sunglasses though...

More later,
