New (to me) Bike!

Specialized S-Works E5 2003 Road Bike with new/used Campagnolo components. First time I’ve had a bike under 20 lbs. Looking forward to next season!

New Bike

Tour de Fire (50 miles): Ottumwa to Eddyvlille to Blakesburg to Ottumwa. Three fire stations provided the break areas. Nice rolling hills with more elevation changes than Van Buren. Sep 15.


Bike Van Buren XXXII (40 miles): Keosauqua to Bentonsport to Bonaparte to Farmington to Keosauqua.  Great hospitality at four break areas. Nice pancake breakfast at the start. Great shirt for visibility! Aug 19.
