The return of spring

After record setting snowfall this past Winter it feels as though Spring has finally arrived. This past Sunday the conditions couldn't have been any better. Mid 60's sunny and not terribly windy. Needless to say, I took advantage of the weather and packed up my Awol and went out for about a 30 mile ride.  I rumbled through mud, gravel, and paved roads...and the Awol never skipped a beat. Along the way I also stopped into Marblehead Cycle (what is now my local bike shop) and test rode a 56cm Specialized Roubaix. Unfortunately, that bike was too small and they didn't have a 58 in stock so my search continues.
