Dust shall not stay me from my appointed rounds

We woke up to a pretty good brown blow in LBB today, so my plans to go for a long ride went the way of the dust. As befits a girl of grit, however, I used my time off the racing bike to do some long-overdue maintenance on the commuter and the Xtracycle:

In short order, the gears and derailleurs and, erm, clicky bits, were all sparkly and singing like pips. So excited was I by this, that I went ahead and put 10 miles in the Bike Garden Challenge kitty just by running my usual Saturday errands on La Chica (the Salsa commuter) and Annette the Xtracycle. 

A very good day, in spite of the wind and dust.
