Mia and I took Friday off from work so that she could test ride some potential new bikes. We headed up to Plymouth, NH and Rhino Bike Works. I’ve known Mike since he opened the shop back in 1994 and I was a sophomore at Plymouth State University (College back in my days). They were the only shop that I could find that had a Cannondale CAAD10 48cm for Mia to test ride, plus being a Trek dealer she could also test ride the Madone 3.1 and a Cannondale Synapse to get a back to back to back comparison of the three bikes she was interested in.

Exploratory End of Days Ride (GPS info)
Spring is still slowly moving into NH. We had 5″ of new snow Friday and winds in the 25+ MPH range all weekend once more. Last year it topped out around 80 degrees on this same weekend. What I would not give for weather like that right now.
I’ve been spending some time lately mapping out ideas for the “End of Days Ride” on May 21, 2011. I’ve been using some Delorme maps we have and Bing Maps to piece it together. I wanted to check out an old rail line that is either going to be in the early stages of the ride or the very end. It all depends on which direction I decide is more fun for this ride. Currently I am leaning towards today’s section being towards the end.
