Rode a 400 mile ride for the first ride of the season.
I rode to Cincy Oh to get a computer and to see the flooding of the Ohio River. The highest in 20 years.
Bike rode with no problems.
Here are some pics of the river from Cincy Oh.

That's a decent cruise for February - and great photos!

Remind me to never live near a river again. I once lived quite close to the Brazos river in Texas. Although I never got flooded, that thing always made me nervous.
