A mixed-terrain ride in southern Indiana

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

I managed to get out for a mixed-terrain ride while we were in Indiana. I was feeling a little sluggish, so I set out on a short route I could easily extend if I wanted to. I was loving it, extended the ride several times, and ended up riding around 35 miles. Spring in southern Indiana was a couple weeks ahead of what we’re seeing here in NE Pennsylvania, and it was great to ride some of my old favorite routes, have some warmer weather and see budding trees, bulbs pushing up, and  a few green areas here and there.

    between the seat and the barbed wire, i’d choose the seat to sit on.

    “Bridge” alone ensures that I’m going to do a mixed-terrain ride up there this summer. Glad you had the chance to roam old haunts.

    I live here and the pictures still remind me of how beautiful this area really is. Thanks for taking such great photos!

    So, how are feeling about the bar-end shifters now that you have serious miles on them?

  5. Apertome Says:

    Jon, they feel very natural now. Sometimes it is still a bit of a pain to have to take a hand off the bars to shift, but overall it’s not a problem and I think I have even better shifting control this way.

    I’m using them on my Mustache bars, on the 650b Stumpjumper. As you know, I am fond of them.
