Biking in Hungary

Friday, September 4th, 2009

This picture perfectly describes my bike trip in Hungary.


This was the first stop on the first day of biking, it has since been complimented by wine at every meal, a visit to a vineyard for lunch and wine tasting, then some more biking and dinner and wine tasting.

Yes we are biking, but not very fast. (day 1) (day 2)

Bike Rack at Wolf Trap

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

I posted a couple days ago about my journey to Wolf Trap and the response I got when I asked about bike racks. Turns out that they do have a bike rack.

I got the following response from Wolf

Good afternoon,

Your message was shared with Foundation staff and Wolf Trap National
Park Service representatives and sub-sequentially it has been brought to
our attention that a bike rack has been made available this entire
summer season for events at The Filene Center. The location is just to
the right (south) of the Main Gate before entering the venue.

We sincerely apologize for the oversight regarding this matter. Wolf
Trap is committed to delivering our programs with the best possible
service. We realize that one bad experience is enough to keep you from
returning. We appreciate your patronage and will continue to do all we
can to create the best possible Wolf Trap experience for our patrons.
Thank you again and we hope you will be back for a more enjoyable
evening under the stars at Wolf Trap!

Best regards.

So it looks like they do have a bike rack, so as promised I have changed the title on the original posting. Please let me know if you use it, I didn’t spot it when went to my last concert.

Bike Stats

Another holy crap moment… I mean shit…. Are they there any minors reading this blog?

On my bike ride home yesterday my odometer turned over 700 miles. This is how many miles I have biked since getting my trek 4300 in May 2008, just before bike to work day.

Currently it stands at
ODOMETER 721.4 miles
Distance to ridden work 12.09 this morning
Time 0:46:32
Avg Speed 15.4 mph
Max 31. mph

This pails in comparison to those crazy guys from the Tour De France who did 2174 miles over 21 days. I am averaging about 130 miles a week which they did in one day, and what more they climbed L’Alpe-d’Huez plus 2 other peaks on the way to the finish.

After a couple months of trying to swim twice a week, cycling to work (well on days when it isn’t snowing or raining) and 3 days of skiing I have managed to loose 10 pounds, not the money kind but the weight kind.
