Inaugural Ride of 2018 Trek Domane SLR 6

Eclectic Athlete

Today is a big day!  On this gloriously sunny Saturday I am embarked on the inaugural ride of my new road bike, a 2018 Trek Domane SLR 6.  I was fortunate to get a great deal on an incredible new bike.  For now, I have  chosen not to use clip in pedals, but instead when with traditional pedals with a strap, made by Power Grips.

I set out after the frost started to clear in the morning, to ride across the new SR 520 floating bridge bike path, which just opened on December 20.  It was a beautiful ride there, and the new path across the bridge is awesome.

The bike worked great.  No flats, smooth ride, and no problem getting up even the steep hills around our neighborhood.
