Early Birds #2 - West alternative

Yesterday PyZahl stayed dry indoors as there were over 2 inches of rain poring down while a storm was moving over the Island. A day to do some bike maintenance.

This is how it looked after the storm...

... and the first ride with the all new rings, chain, overhauled dérailleur -- it was a so much smoother ride ...

Today, Sunday was Early Birds day for the second time of the season again. A nice clear and sunny day, if just that strong steady 30F cold 25 mph West wind with gusts up to 40 mph would not have been blowing. A few frozen puddles, some sand piles, but mostly nice washed clean and blown dry road with a few new holes in it.... as usual.

They decided to go for an little more protected alternative route more West, it came out a little shorter than usual but was fine.

This Sunday afternoon was a special event in Rocky Point, the St. Patricks Day Parade. Py is not the biggest friend of such things, but it was quite need, as Rte 25A was fully closed for motor vehicles from noon to 4p. That was quite unusual view and feeling, people all over and especially before the start in Mt. Sinai, a quite empty multi lane road for all folks to play on...
