    Combo bike trail and first time road ride, also longest of the season

    This evening I did my longest ride so far this season, a little over ten miles. I started at one of the local parks MUP's and then hit the streets, and finished back on the MUP. I was a little nervous about riding on the road but, it went off without a hitch. There were a couple of somewhat embarrsassing moments, like that one darn hill I ended up walking up. Or the group of real road riders that passed me like I was road kill but, other than that it was a nice evening. I think it time to turn in because I am dead tired and you would not believe how many typos I had to correct while typing this thread.

    Congratulations! It reads like the riding was a success.

    BTW, there was one typo you forgot to correct. I bolded it for you. You typed "real" for "fellow"; using "real" implies you are an "unreal" cyclist, when we all know you are every gear-inch an equal for anyone riding.

    well said
    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
