Short work week and I rode to work 2 of the 3 days. Riding the Brooks saddle I noticed a huge difference right off the bat. The Stinson is fun to ride again because it feels right.
Riding up through the Pond Brook River Valley Wednesday morning there were some cool lighting conditions.
Dark clouds with the sun rising in the east make an interesting combination.
Of course, those potholes got me on Pond Brook Road causing me to drop my chain. Looks like I need to tighten my chain again.

On the way in, I took my 11 mile route which is a favorite of mine because there are no real terrible descents and I can usually do it in just under an hour. Seeing that it was the start of the Thanksgiving Holiday, the office cleared out quickly so I left around 3 ish and decided to take the long way home. The wind, both coming and going, really cooled things off quickly. Still, it was great to be on the Stinson and having the bike feel right again!
