Norm Stopped By

The Beer: Tried the Belgian mid-week. Pretty good, if I do say so myself. The IPA has a couple weeks to bottling and I put together a Saison (Lawnmower) today. This should be the end of summer brewing. I'll start on an Octoberfest as time and finances allow.

The Bicycle. Pretty good week. I got in 72 yesterday and 15 with Mrs. today. I'll get her ramped up over the next few weeks. I've decided I no longer have anything to prove, even to myself. I'll ride as far and as often and at the locations I feel like.

It is now possible to get from the Lakefront in Milwaukee all the way to Oostburg (It's in Wisconsin. Look it up. Do I have to do everything?). I'm looking forward to the tie in with the Plank Road Trail in Sheboygan. Note, that, as a Conservative in the Reagan mold, I believe taxpayers shouldn't have to foot the bill, although I am willing to help foot the bill.

The VRWC: I know Phelony Jones. Phelony Jones is a friend of mine. Here's the view from Casa Phel:

back started biking again, but have had a few setbacks. After a tune-up, I went out for the first time and broke my chain at 3.2 miles, fortunately my route wasn't very linear and the walk home was about a mile. Turns out cleaning wasn't enough, as the corrosion of the garage for seven years was just too much for the chain. Thankfully that was the only part that rusted, aside from having to deal with cable related issues. Then I got my second eye lasered, so it'll be a couple weeks before my eye can handle it. Then I should be getting started, I'm looking forward to it.

Depending on what type of bicycle you have, you should be able to get a SRAM chain. Good fit and easy to clean and lubricate. Clean and lube it every couple months. You should get a couple thousand miles out of the chain that way.
