WBG Java Jive Crow Express - August 27, 2016

Well the weather did not cooperate today as it was not supposed to rain this morning but did big time!

The temperature average was only 15C with dew point at 14C and humidity at 85%. Only a slight wind from the SE at 6 KPH.

Richard, Chris, David, Onri, Tim R., and Edward rode the WBG Java Jive. Unfortunately both Tim R. and David fell going over some wet railroad tracks on Hennipen Ave. when we detoured from our usual route because of the Minnesota State Fair. Tim R. broke his left wrist and and a small bone in his left hip. Dave has a suffered an AC Joint Separation in his right shoulder but no broken bones. Both are recovering.

Chris, Onri, Richard, Scott, and Edward rode on the WBG Java Crow Express. The TCBC Cruisin' The Crow ride was cancelled since no riders showed up. Edward was leading this ride.

WBG Java Jive Crow Express - August 6, 2016

It was the nicest bicycle day of 2016 here in the northlands! Temperature average of only 22C with humidity at 80% at the beginning of the ride and down to 54% by the end. The dew point was 12 C and the nice refreshing cool wind was from the NNW at 5 KPH at the beginning of the day and 16 KPH at the end.

We had 8 riders for the WBG Java Jive and 10 riders for the Java Crow Express. The Java Jive included Rob, Richard, Gordon, Chris, Jerry, David, Tim R., and me.  Except for David we all also did the Java Crow Express and were joined by Tom, Tim B., and Matt. Tim R., Jerry, Tim B., and I did Cruisin the Crow.

Unfortunately Matt fell trying to unclip and bruised the top of his leg. Tim R. was plagued with maintenance issues. He just got his road bike back after some warranty work but had a problem with the chain. He switched into his single speed for the rest of the day and then had tire issues on a brand new back tire.
