My favorite stroll through Greenwich and Google calendar ROCKS

When it comes to training, I am ALWAYS talking about the weather. It determines where you are going, what you are wearing, and sometimes how hard you can go.

Take for today: Another bright and sunny 45 degree day. Is winter over with? It IS January 18th, right?!?!?

Well, coincidentally I had to bike for 90 mins today so this is one of those days that I call PERFECT. There was no need to time trial anything so I brought out the road bike. Its been a long time since I rode over the border into ritzy Greenwich, so I went out onto one of my favorite 26 mile courses:

I just cruised nice and easy. This course is so wonderful because it offers rollers, some steep pitches, and some nice long flat straightaways. Not to mention a number of $10 million dollar houses. There is a $95 million estate available a mile from this route if anyone is interested!

I also want to give a shout out to Kevin @ for hooking me up with this totally kick@$$ google calendar (almost) widget.

Check out his site and send him a comment if you want instructions on a how-to to get this going. I use this blog as my training center and I am constantly looking at my calendar to see what I have to do currently and in the near future. This calendar widget just made it 100's easier and clearer. I *heart* Google!


  1. I'll refrain from negative comments regarding your awesome weather and just say awesome widget, I think I'll be yanking the idea as well...I need to be held accountable!

  2. Hi little bro,

    I want to see Greenwich and the 10 million dollar houses! Looking on you map there appears to be a ton of country clubs on your route. Very cool!

    Have a good day Jon!

  3. Nifty widget! BTW, I got Yaktrax and used them for my hike, loved them! You wrote about them recently right?
