I haven't minded too much riding in my jeans this winter, but, it just feels good riding with your legs exposed.
There is some progress being made on the Trinity Trails improvement project. This is the section that runs from Rogers to University.
The fishing pier is taking shape.

I stopped here after climbing up the hill in the background and took care of a maintenance issue. My right crank arm has been coming loose and will probably have to be replaced. I've been stopping every half hour or so to tighten the crank arm bolt.
Sewing Update: A couple of weeks ago I drove over to my neighborhood fabric store and picked up a yard and a half of some cotton duck that was on sale. I've been using this stuff to practice sewing bags. I was having problems sewing corners until I read a tutorial on making box cushions. I also found a good tutorial video on sewing bias tape although I haven't found anything about how to properly sew this stuff around corners or curves. It's a pain in the rear. There's a lot to learn but I'm enjoying it.
Trial and error. If I stand back and squint, the bag looks decent. You can see the problems I'm having sewing the tape on the edge of the flap. I didn't bother buying matching thread so the mistakes really stand out.
I cut up some cardboard to give the bag it's shape. Once I get the hang of this stuff I plan to make a bag for my rear rack.
