It's cold,dark and wet. at least it's not raining. It was just Jamie and I tonight and that was ok. We pedaled the wet , muddy ( in places) section of forrest park that I only frequent in the winter. Forrest Park is the largest city park in the nation. Yes, bigger than Central Park in New York. but it has no single track for bikes. That may change someday, but for now the law abiding mountain bikers ride the fire lanes when in Forrest Park. At night it's almost like single track. So my Bianchi Single speed had a wimpy rear cog and I didn't have another for the tame hills at F.P. so I improvised. I ended up with a 32/13 which is a stupid ratio but I could ride. It was typical for the F.P. ride. Muddy on the German Town road end and dry after. Heard some Coyotes and that was wierd. I can't believe I've written this much about Forrest Park. Funny. Anyway...I bent the cog or tooth or sompin so the last mile of our 10 mile ride I had to walk. O well. Fun ride and not as cold as I thought it would be. Looking forward to the next Wed night Pedal.
