1998 Porsche Bike S for sale
A friend of mine in the Atlanta, Georgia area is selling a 1998 Porsche Bike S. This bike is in good shape with recently refurbished forks (with new elastomers) and new mountain bike tires. This bike still has the original seat and stock reflector set. The 1998 Bike S also has the upgraded forks (with heavy duty spring) and updated grip shifters, that the previous model didn't include. The frame is the medium size and fits people up to 6'2" This is a good buy at the asking price of $975.00. If you're interested, message me and I'll get you in touch with the seller.

With my 2020 Porsche Bike S goal of riding the 185-mile Chesapeake and Ohio Towpath, I need some practice riding three consecutive days. So, today I rode 20 miles around the dirt and paved paths of the Patuxent Wildlife Refuge. 20 miles is short compared to the 60 miles I'll need to average doing the C&O, but I need to start somewhere. Tomorrow I'm planning another 20 miles with two loops around the BWI airport loop.

I’m still hoping to ride the 185-mile C&O Canal Towpath this fall. To keep me motivated I hung a trail map poster on the kitchen wall. I’m planning the three-day ride averaging 60 miles per day. The map is helping me figure out the evening stops for lodging and beer.

My new friend and fellow PCA member sent me a photo of his Porsche bike build in progress. He bought a late 1990s Porsche Bike R road bike frame and forks and is building up a commuter bike. I love the brown leather saddle and handlebar grips ... very classic Porsche look! This will be a very unique and one of a kind Porsche bicycle. Can’t wait to see the final build.

Needing to increase my mileage and riding frequency to attempt the Chesapeake and Ohio Towpath ride later this fall, I went to the Patuxent Wildlife Refuge for my third day in a row bike ride. Looking for more suitable places to ride, I came across this wildlife area near my house. It was near perfect riding conditions with great weather and very few cars in this natural preserve. The only thing keeping it from perfect was the “wildlife loop” road wasn’t actually a loop. So I had to do a bunch of out and backs to get the mileage I wanted. Still, all in all this was a great ride today!

With the stay-at-home orders lifted, I rode the 1998 Porsche Bike S 22 miles on the Baltimore to Annapolis bike path this morning. It was a fun ride but my lower back started hurting. I’m gonna need to lose a few pounds and work my way back up to higher mileage again. The stay-at-home definitely put a dent in my cycling ability.
