I had posted on the STLbents forum that we were going to ride some of the MCT trails and stop at the Donut Palace for an apple fritter, can't pass that up, can we? Marian took me up on the invite, so we met for the first time yesterday. We had a fun time riding our Rover 8's. She is going to be very good and strong rider shortly. She showed up with only 50 miles on her Rover and went home with 80 miles. You Go Girl.
The Rover 8 is awesome, what a great gearing for riding trails. The MCT trails are rails to trails about 100 miles in all at this time, they interconnect with each other, you can go out one way and come back another. The wind got a little stiff toward the end but the gearing on the Rover 8 made it an non-issue. This trike is AWESOME!!!!!
Found out that I do not have enough storage on the trike so a trunk rack and a trunk and my panniers will be going on soon. With the cold weather coming have to have some place to put the clothes when I heat up.
As for as a jacket you should see Marian's jacket, WOW what a super bright yellow, it glows in the sunlight. Its so cool.
I think I will be putting on the high pressure tires as an upgrade. Help this ole biken ggggeeezzzeeeerrrrr on the trail. This trike is so easy to ride. Its going to be easy to maintain a good speed with this machine.
No riding here today, RAIN, darn the luck, but the weekend is suppose to be good.
Back to the MCT next Wed. an of course over to the Donut Palace for an apple fritter.
