Sleek, light, convenient, easy to use, and completely useless during daytime.

Recent Rides

Saturday morning was Denis' MoCo Epic Fall Colors edition. Some nice photos from his Picasa album here.

Thursday I hauled the Electric Warrior inside my car to Frederick and rode with Andy and Mark after work. The entire route was relatively flat, but 2-hr+ nearly 40-mile pedaling was still a pretty good workout. Mark the strong rider pulled most of the way impressively.

In both cases the GPS worked flawlessly.
