At long last....Spinchick
May 23, 2003 2:12 PM
I'm on the road again! After 8+ months of sporadic riding, then being stuck on a trainer on the front porch and rollers in the driveway - the little kiddo is finally old enough to ride in a trailer. Thankfully, she LOVES it as much as I do. I ended up getting a Wike trailer. It weighs 18 pounds and has more room than most of the others. I highly recommend it.

My oldest (aka Spinkid) wants to ride the ACS bike-a-thon with me this year. She'll ride on the trail-a-bike from the final rest stop to the finish - about 9 miles or so. YAY - a cycling kid!

I've missed you crazy people. Imagine that!

Glad to hear you're back and ok.

Got pics? Mine.

Remember, Doug is an admirer of John Ashcroft and has met him in person. You know Ashcroft's history with public displays of pubic regions. ;-)

Now that you're back I'll have to dust off my Superman outfit and get to cranking out some serious mileage.....

I played Mr. Mom to my now 16 year old daughter and I have an idea what it's like. I think that's about the time I lost my sanity.

Welcome back...
Just be sure youSpinchick

post some pics in that Superman outfit, Dino.

Sanity? That's what I'm hoping to regain now that I'm back on the road.

Good to see all the regulars are still around.

We can always use a few more chicks around here.
Happy belated Mother's Daymickey-mac

Your name was raised in connection with a recent Mother's Day toast when we realized that you were one of the few mothers on the board and we hadn't heard from you in some time. Now that you're back on the bike, are you back on hubby's homebrew too? Glad to hear from you.
If he's brewing, I'm drinking...Spinchick

I'm still waiting for the next batch. Hopefully soon! I picked up a Pale Ale recipe for him that I keep trying to convince him to make. Have you anything new and interesting you'd be willing to share?

Thanks for the Mom's day wishes. You guys are great.
I was just thinking you the other day.KG 361

Great to hear from you! Will you be MB1's NSOCE century? Handing out snow-cones? My kids like to ride too; I'm working on getting them to do an organized ride.
I would love to do it!Spinchick
May 25, 2003 1:20 PM
I've tried to do a couple of them and something always came up at the last minute. It would be great to have a ride with options for the kids. I haven't talked to Mark for some time. Maybe it's time to drop him an email...

Are you in the D.C. area?
I would love to do it!KG 361
May 26, 2003 7:07 AM
I'm actually from aroumd Hbg, PA. I, too, have planned on doing that ride a few times now but something always interferes. I am planning on it this year (if MB1 has it) since I will not be doing the Seagull century-way too much $$$$. My sister-in-law lives in Annapolis so I will probably staying there. Good to hear that your back on the road!
Could be a plan.Spinchick

My folks live on their sailboat - it's docked in Annapolis the warmer half of the year. There are some nice (but flat) places to ride down that way.

I went to HS in Carlisle, PA.
Could be a plan.KG 361

Born in Carlisle. Shall we all sing "It's a small world after all?" =)
May 26, 2003 5:15 PM
It is seriously a small world. Did you grow up there as well? I was there from '79 - '84.
Nope.KG 361
May 27, 2003 5:33 AM
I only lived there about 2 months or so (I was less than a year old). My parents moved to Millersburg (about 30 miles north of Harrisburg) around '59-60.

is about 20 minutes from where I live.

I hope MB does his fixie ride.

Me too.KG 361

Looking forward to meeting all you DC area riders. I'm still working on a century ride around here possibly mid-late June. I have a route planned but I need to ride it to get exact mileage. It won't be flat......
May 26, 2003 5:18 PM
Well, let's drop him simultaneous emails. Maybe with a little nudge...

Glad to see you're still around, Len. :-)
Sounds like a plan......Len J
May 26, 2003 5:59 PM
Ditto on seeing you back around.

Glad your delivery went well and that motherhood continues to be a blessing.

At least I don't have any of my own beer. I recently drank that last of the English Brown Ale I made. I'm thinking about brewing up a batch of Imperial Stout soon. However, a beer of that gravity will take a while to reach drinkability. It may be setting high goal, but I'm going to shoot for something similar to Stone Imperial Stout.
May 26, 2003 10:17 AM
Hubby made a batch of stout a couple of years ago. Something went wrong - it didn't turn out well at all. He's determined to try it again since we both like it.
May 26, 2003 1:07 PM
My first ever batch was an imperial stout that came in at about 10% abv. It must have been beginner's luck because it's still the best batch I've made to date.
May 26, 2003 5:20 PM
our first batch was the best we've done so far. Something to be said for beginner's luck I guess. I seem to remember it being just a basic lager, but it was great.
