Ride the tunnel

Who is going to ride through the opening waterfront tunnel on Monday? I am tentatively planning to hit it around 9AM before work. Should make a nice sound with my GPR pipe

I ran he new tunnel and Viaduct Saturday morning. It was fine. Kind of disappointing they went with less capacity, but when you are only spending $2,000,000,000.00 sacrifices must be made.

Not surprised, but how was the snow impacting that?

Oh snap!

One of my bikes is at the top of a hill covered in snow and ice to the main road, which has patches of snow and ice. I think I will not go for a ride today though I will say in my youth (stupid) I did that exact thing and thought it was fun.

Ok, 'stupid' may have been a bit strong. Maybe wiser? Mostly because I can't afford the falls any more. They hurt too much! I have a TW200 that would work in snow pretty good.

Yeah, my clavicle just barely healed, and the rotator cuff is still aching (probably forever). I may try that on electric bicycle...

I have had an AC resection And 2 rotator cuff surgeries on each side. They hurt every day and will not get better. Fun stuff! Best of luck with yours!

Instead of doing more surgeries, I decided to learn Japanese swordsmanship in order to strengthen my body. Working well so far, plus it's cool as fuck!
