Nothing like new wheels…

    Hi Ted,

    You’re back! And correct as usual…new wheels can transform a bike.

    Saw your name in a recent reorganization email, thought I’d check your blog for activity. Is that photo in or near Babler? The trees look familiar. Being in Iowa these days, I miss Babler. Nothing comparable for hill repeats here in the land of corn.

    Take care.

    • Back sort of – still riding (lots) but just don’t have much to say here. Had a lot of knee problems the past several months, but I finally found some drugs that are doing the trick and I’m riding with aggression again!

      The pic is my backyard from the driveway, but we do live very close to Babler so you’re sort of correct 🙂

      I hear the north and south parts of Iowa are quite hilly…
