Mine is a Gary Fisher "Wingra" from around 2007, but with comfort upgrades to the seat and grips, added back rack, fenders, Raceface Ride pedals, lots of useful accessories. My favorites are the Ortlieb panniers, also yellow.

Used Saphir Renovateur on my boots and I'm really happy with the results! Been using just silicone mink-oil paste for years, and while that probably adds more water resistance, it made my boots seem kinda gunky and weird. This stuff is silky smooth.

The sign said "scenic overlook and public restrooms." How could I resist? (Green Ridge Mountain, Maryland)


Some photos from my ride on the NCR trail in Maryland, 40ish miles on Wednesday

Bike, strava

I'm not sure where people got the idea that this bond issue was a good idea. I know the people I organize with were not fooled, and that helps me know I'm working with the right people.

When the mayor posted today that Bond Issue 14 money would be going to police, a lot of people reacted with surprise. That's a bummer because the text of the issue does say pretty clearly it's money for "Police and Fire Facility Improvements" and "Police Substations and Fire Stations."
