Great Day to Ride

Woke up to a sunny Sunday. Yeah, no rain. Lets go cycling!

The view from my trike. Getting ready to push off from the top of the hill where I live.
I get up to 35mph in a short distance before I have to slow down. Coming back up is 4mph.
The ride back up was much easier with the granny gear I installed yesterday.

Granny Gear for Grandpa

Raining all day today so I took the time to change out my 30T chainwheel with a 24T. My lowest gear is now 18 gear inches verses the old 24 gear inches. Now that 11% grade back home won't be the spoiler to a good ride. There have been times that I have decided not to ride because of the lousy hill that I have to ride up just to get home.
