Started riding again last April, and it actually took me several weeks to have my first Tombay. Fortunately there was a guy on a motorcycle to see me, and he got a really good laugh.
Then, after a long climb on a Century ride, I was so whipped I decided to stop and get an energy shot and some water in while taking a breather. Tombayed on the very peak of the climb, on the stupid yellow line down the middle of the road.
Well, today was my first mountain bike ride, a race in the Oregon mountains. Long climb to the single track, which I had never done before. But I have climbed lots of hills, just not many this steep. After having trouble staying in my clips the whole climb, I decided to take a rest break, but at this moment my pedals decided they wanted to make up for all the trouble they had been and decided to hold dearly to my shoes. Over I went, on a nice, level, relatively smooth logging road, after having survived earlier single track. Only fall I took the entire race. On the stupid road, in a level spot. And the danged packed gravel might as well have been pavement. GRRRR!
