My mind said no, my legs said go.

I thought to myself at work today, this will probably be a day off the bike. It has been 6 days in a row bicycling, and I could feel the lactic acid in my legs. 3 days on dirt for 190 miles and I don't know how many pavement miles. However after I got home from work I fell asleep for 15 minutes on the couch watching Judge Judy. Woke up, and the legs said Let's GO!!! So go I did, felt good, felt light, felt zippy. Pavement always feel fast on a road bike, with 23cc tires, when the last two days I have been riding knobbies in the dirt.

Oh see the little crying baby face? That is going to start growing bigger and bigger. I am going to be whining. Starting on April 5th for three weeks I won't be riding a bike much except for maybe a couple of days. Work, work work. Due to work requirements I will not have any free time. It happens every year twice. We will be on shutdown and installing new equipment, tuning and enhancing existing controls with long hours and long weeks. Oh well, maybe I'll buy myself a Pugsley afterwards.

So over and out, and don't pout.

Loved your post, it made me smile. Where the heck did you find that crying baby face?

After all those extra hours, yes, yes, buy a Pugsley!

I agree with Lisa, buy the Pugsley.

Oh the little crying baby. I'm not sure of baby's origin, he showed up one day on my computer and has been crying ever since.

Judge Judy??? - LOL That was great!

Buy the Pugsley and let me know how it works out for you - I need a true winter trail bike!

Have a great day!
