40+ degrees on Saturday

It's supposed to be above 40 degrees on Saturday - to celebrate, let's ride outside for once. I plan to leave the parking lot of the strip mall on 14th and Pine Lake (Wilderness Perk, Zesto's, etc.) at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday for a nice easy ride to get some miles in. Probably will head out to Saltillo, then take SW12th to Denton road, then west to Denton. Whoever wants to turn around at Denton can turn around there, or folks can continue wherever they want to go from that point. Anyone welcome - hope some of you can join me.

Jazz Thursday at Pears

Bored? Cabin Fever? Tired of riding the trainer or jogging on the treadmill in the basement? Writer's strike or oncoming recession got you down?

Come unwind and listen to some jazz - my quintet is playing Thursday, Jan. 24 from 7:30-10 p.m. at P.O Pears - featuring Rusty White on bass, Peter Bouffard on guitar, Steve Helfand on drums, Scott Vicroy on saxophone, and me on trumpet. Hope you can come down. .

Pedals: Mountain vs. Road

Is there much of a difference between clipless road pedals/shoes vs. mountain pedals/shoes? I've never tried road shoes/pedals -- just SPD 520 mountain pedals. I know mountain pedals are easier to walk in. Just wondering if it'd be worth the switch for road rides.
