Finished the 'slow and easy' ride with my son, first group ride for him, 34 miles of single speed madness. He was quiet on the way home. He has come over to the Dark Side. My work is nearly complete.

So far this thread is a great reminder as to why I don't use Twitter.

I think you boys don't quite have the hang of it. The twitter feed on the road bike forum is at 22971 posts. I thought it was a good idea.

It is. We older (e.g. mature) bikers can beat that, since we have more spare time. Right?

[tweet] The LBS I frequent is having the grand opening of their new place this weekend. Double the floor space of the old location. More stuff to drool over. I feel N+1 coming.... [/tweet]

No, no, no. this is not a bodily function tracker. You're supposed to tweet something like "I rode today and crushed someone's soul" type of thing. This is for cycling.

Haven't had a good BM yet today, though.
