My baby brother is 12 years younger than me so he has no rights to be forgetful.
He took yesterday off work, got up early and drove 2 hours up to the mountains to do a training ride. He put on all his gear on and got his bike out of his truck. He looks around and lo and behold he cannot find the front wheel. After some head scratching he realizes he has left it at home.
Fortunately a bike shop was only 30 mins away so he loaded back up and drove over to it. He waited a while until it opened and the folks were kind enough to rent him a wheel for the day. He wound up getting in a good ride with a lot of climbing and probably will have at least the front wheel the next time he travels to do a ride.
A while back we had a post about blaming stuff like that on being 50+. I guess with some folks it starts a little early......or maybe I'm just beginning to rub off on him a little.
