I headed out on a ride Sunday morning. It was only 40.37 miles with 1108 feet of climbing. (I got a Garmin for xmas) I took some shots from Royal Kunia looking down at the Waipahu/Ewa Beach area. In the distance you can see Honolulu and Diamond Head.

Ewa Village

After descending from Royal Kunia, I rode through historic Ewa Village. In the late 19th through the mid 20th century, Ewa (Eva) was a center for sugar cane. The pictures show the bungalow type houses built in this area. In recent years, the houses have been revitalized the area is a desirable location to live. I was a little suprised to see the Abraham Lincoln statue at an elementary school. I guess Lincoln spent the "lost years" in Hawaii before going to congress. The plaque said something like "Da Rail Splittah".

Weather here was chilly and rainy. I started the year off wrong by not going for a ride.

You've got the setup.
It was really nice here today. I was up until around 3am so I slept in until 10:30 and have been on my butt watching TV all day. Not wrong, but not right. I have tomorrow off, I will ride after installing a new Centaur UT crankset on the Pego. I just don't like my FSA SLK anymore.

Tomorrow is the first day back to work after new years. I don't know if you ever did a new years here, but a good deal of tomorrow morning will be spent going around and wishing each other a Happy New Year. Probably some good food as well. I guess that we will only get two work days this week. Just finished installing a Centaur UT crankset on the Pegoretti. I was expecting utility and got a polished finish and high quality chainrings.
