    first ride of the year...and a reminder

    Did a real short ride while daughter was cleaning stalls yesterday. It was a nice country road but that chip seal creates a harsh ride on a road bike. Anyhow, rode about 5 miles, I could have gone farther except when took the bike off the car I realized I left my saddle bag with all the flat repair tools at home so I didn't want to get to far away from the farm (I took it off to adjust the seat). I managed to elude one dog, scared the crap out of a horse (man did he ever snort when he saw me coming) and scared a bunch of ducks. My sit bones hurt but I think I have the saddle dialed in a little better. So the reminder is to double check to be sure you have everything before leaving the house! Ride on!

    Least you found out before you left , not after you had a flat
    Tact is for people who arenít witty enough to use sarcasm.

    Early helplessness is the price we pay for later brilliance. Or, at least our later capacity for non-idiocy
