Old man river, the Mississippi. I did some laps around this area, just because I was digg'n the view.
Plans are to do some long rides this weekend. Hopefully in the country. I hear weather rumors of rain, followed by more rain. I can ride rain, would like to have better rain gear, will look into that. It seems that riding in the rain sooner or later you still get soaked to the bone no matter what you are wearing. The trails will be a mix of mud, snow and ice.
Saw other riders out tonight. Haven't seen much of that for most the winter. Some in blue jeans enjoying the nice day and riding easy, and the "serious bikers" with spandex and neon yellow and helmets. Distinct differences easily recognizable. I sometimes get this "secret race" thing going when I get along side other riders. Oh man, and his ego. I start to up the pace, and when they follow with the same, the fun starts. I pretend that going 20 mph and breathing through my nose in normal. In actuality I am dying and going to explode in 60 seconds or less. When the younger,well trained rider starts to pull away or a.k.a. kick my almost 57 year old butt, I realize that who ever said "age is just a number" ain't been old yet. But I give them a good run. At least I tell myself that. :-), and check my heart monitor to see if I hit a all time high.
Well glad you stopped in, and hope you had a good day, if not hope you begin steps to change that.
