Walmart rides


This is my Burley Kosah I ride this one as much as possible
I had to replace the rear shifting cable and that still didnt help out to much come to find out it was my shifter. It was broke inside the handle...So I replaced it and its much better...I been to walmart 3 times last week and one time today..10 mile round trip..I still need to weld my seet bracket to the frame...The pop rivots they used from factory are wore out..seat moves alot side to side..So to fix this proble just weld theseat frame to the bike frame..thats my plan anyways..lol....it was 36 degrees today a bit nippy but still got my ride on...

30 mile ride

Went on a 30 mile recumbent ride today. I went from my house to Old Mill then up to Century drive then down Greenwood and 3rd st to Blockbuster and then Walmart and went home. I had a pretty good sweat going on..So it takes about 30 miles of good riding to break a sweat..
Had a great ride. Weather held up untill the last few miles heading home it started to get a bit nippy..
I created this video of my rides latly and combined them into one video..I know how to do that now so I can take mini videos then when i get home I can combine them into a good video..

20 mile ride

I rode about 20 miles and made a few stops that I havent made in awhile. stopped and repeat performance...its a 2nd hand sports shop..they deal in alot of things but mainly for me its camping and bicycle stuff....always looking for a new bag of sorts...went to the Gear Pedaler also its another 2nd hand store for sports..they just started they are getting me some lites for my wheels...the only place in town that has them,
   
This video is along the river heading up to century drive. Its off the side of Old Mill...such a beautiful ride around Bend. I think people relize how pretty it really is here...

Trying out my hiking/biking cook stove

I was thinking it maybe a good idea to take my little box stove with me on some rides since I do pretty hungry on my rides. I hate stopping to eat fast food but as you all know there isnt alot of place to get a healthy snack...So I took my little box stove and some rice and took me a 1/2 hr break and made lunch
This is setting it all up
This is cooking the rice
its small enough to fit in my Panniers and very light.
and I can make a nice hot healthy lunch
