Training Ride and Training Blog from the Road

I am about to head off from Pearson College on a test ride. Trying out the new pair of Schwalbe Supreme tires and trying out blogging from my iPhone.

Here is a photo of the tires I have replaced:

These are Grand Bois Blue 33mm but actual width is about 30mm.

Here are the new tires:

And another:

They are listed as 700c x 42mm. The actual width on my rims measure about 37mm. They are inflated to 50 psi and roll firmly and smoothly.

Before I leave I notice a room birthday going on on my deck. Here they are:

  1. Dave,

    So jealous of your trip but not so jealous of the effort needed to sustain forward travel. Keep up the pace! B T W I have a free application on my cellphone called “Strava.com”. It tracks your trip in detail using GPS. It also stores the information graphically for later review, if you pay extra. I think it’s worth it as you can slice and dice the data later on……Just a thought… Happy trails!!!
    Watch out for the bears (and moose(s))! Tom
