Dang Nabbit

Don't ya hate it when you have the day off, it's sunny, and you want to get ride'n and you can't find your sunglasses.

Actually that was true this morning, looking for my shades, but lo and behold I had a revelation and found em. I think a product of to many coffees.

Got on my bike and headed out to the country side. For about 20 miles I was moving out pretty fast and felt charged. Then I think my gas tank ran out. Perhaps 250 miles in the last 5 days most of it on gravel was now taking it's tow on this old carcass. So I put my legs in low gear and just cruised for 65 miles. It was warm out, drank 10 lbs of fluids.

Well, I think it's time to put away the winter Sidi's. Had to cool the feet a bit. These shoes just fit so well and transfer the pedaling energy well. Heck they oughtta, for 3 BEN$ and then some. I have a couple of summer biking shoes but I am thinking of getting a low cut Sidi, it's a good shoe.

Even my bike was tired and had trouble getting up and get er going after stopping. She felt like I did.

This is a film clip I took this morning of how much street I need to ride to get on trails that take me out of town. Parked cars, cars at intersections, cars passing, all make caution a good thing to heed.

So thanks for stopping, hope all is well in your home.
