    Cindy and I just got back from a 5+ mile ride on the Sippo Valley trail. Her 4th time on the bike, did bout 6 MPH going west, and cranked it up to bout 12MPH going back east. Nice little ride, and I think she had fun too. We stopped at Ernie's for ice cream on the way home - time to mow til dark...

    Ice cream is a good way to finish any ride. Its good to hear that your able to get out and able to ride.
    It is not about the destination. It is about the journey getting there.
    Competitors work until they get it right, but champions work until they can't get it wrong.

    It's supposed to thunderstorm tonight, but it's up to Cindy I'm trying to make everything fit in the garage today, and since it's "Cinco de Mayo", we're meeting friends at a local Mexican place tonight...

    ok, random thought. If you had a tandem bicycle and the drunk person was on the back in the stoker possition, would the sober driver in the captains possition get charged with a DWI?

    Be safe tonight, pedal tomorrow to burn it back off.

    I went for a ride by myself today, since I don't have a speedometer or a mile tracker I'm not really sure how long I went for but I know it was for 30 minutes straight. For a small fat girl that isn't too bad for the 5th time riding with no prior excercise. Am I winded yep, are my legs like spaghetti, yep, but am I doing ok, yep. So all is good.

    Looking forward to not writing it, Neil!

    You know me, one-liners are my thing...I'll leave the ride reporting to Peter and I'll fill in anything of note he might have missed...like nekkid women running down the side of the towpath cheering us on to victory over the chipmunks.

    That's what I keep telling Cindy! I bet she will surpass me within 4-6 weeks - and, my wife gets whatever she wants...

    Ride Report!

    Cindy and I were to meet Chipcom and Mrs. Chipcom at the Center St crossing of the Towpath in Canel Fulton tonight at 5:30PM. Normally, I am the kind of guy to be 20-30 minutes early, but sadly tonight I made us like 10 minutes LATE! - I wonder if they were thinking we were going to no-show (I really hate to be late, sorry!)

    Nice evening, bout 68 degrees or so, after hellos, got on our bikes and headed south. Ladies in front (Cindy never hit Mrs. Chipcom or anything) and Chipcom and I followed. Went bout four miles, stopped to turn around, did one short break bout halfway back, bout 8 miles total.

    Riding time was bout 90 minutes and Cindy did great!

    Of course Chipcom and Mrs Chipcom are great people, and we hope to ride with them more in the future! Was a fun ride, saw some geese on the path, and was a veery pretty area too!

    Of course, Peter went off the path twice, and for some weird reason, when we stopped to turn around, here I was all stopped, left foot down, watching Cindy come to a stop in front of us, and I magically fell over to the right, off the edge, right down into a patch of brambles! OUCH!!!

    Took Chipcom and 2-3 other passers-by to un-tangle me enough from all the thorns and yank me out of the hole. Picture me sitting on my butt, 3' down below the path with my feet in front of me bout 2' above my butt, then wrap me up in brambles - sadly, no one thought to take a photo before getting me out

    We figure 20-30 scratches and punctures total, and YES, my DR says I need a "Tetanus shot" - YAY...bleh

    Still - it was fun, am glad we went, want to do it again (but minus the brambles)...

    Photos tomorrow!

    Peter and Cindy are good people...it was a pleasure riding with both of them.

    Well at least it was until Peter ticked me off and I kicked him off the side of the path, down the bank and into the thorn bushes. I was aiming to kick him clear into the river.

    On the bright side, Peter learned the value of carrying a small rag or some wet wipes in your kit. Not only good for cleaning up after fixing flats or dropped chains, but also good for blood (he also learned that when you get your blood on a rag, it becomes your rag. ). It's also why it's good to carry a bottle of water in addition to any bottles of gatorade, beer or Jack Daniels you are carrying. Pretty sure Peter would have enjoyed a bit of Jack...for medicinal purposes only, of course.

    Both Peter and Cindy have their marching orders. Keep putting in as many miles as they are comfortable with, concentrating on spinning a nice high cadence with a smooth stroke. Base miles, base miles, base miles...and take a day off now and then to do other things...like yard work, long walks, etc. Try to increase your weekly mileage by about 10% each week until you are doing 20 mile rides with relative ease. Intensity and longer distances can come later...right now job one is building a good foundation of form and base miles.

    Look forward to riding with you guys again soon...and Cheri says the same.

    One more thing for Neil (Historian), and couple of other BFers who will remain nameless.

    Dude, why is it that the first time anyone meets me they always fall off their darned bike or have their toes explode?

    oh and the best part...now I get to start a new helmet thread in A&S:

    Man falls off bike, wasn't wearing helmet, lived.

    ok, ok, I'm going to bed now.

    Ya - no thorns in the head for me! Or, my skull is too hard perhaps?

    Hmm... I wonder if I'll be scarred for life?

    Ride Photos 05-06-10 | Chipcom and Mrs Chipcom, Cindy and Peter

    Cindy and Mrs Chipcom

    Chipcom discussing seat height and Cindy's short legs

    No one can believe the seat height - I think a child's bike was mentioned here

    My new leg wounds - can't see them all, but you get the idea

    The right arm - no one was willing to help me take the photo (think they didn't want anymore blood on them) - so it's a bit blurry

    Possibly. It depends on how deep and big the wound was.

    I still have a scar from September 2008, when I went down on the chain ring. This photo is when it was no more than a week old. It's faded somewhat since.

    They were both with me when that happened. I must be bad luck.
