10 things to never say the night before a ride.
 
Because those could very well happen to you tomorrow on that ride.

1)I have never broke a deraillieur before.

2)I have not had a flat in well over two years <--Worst one.

3)I am on a hot streak I won't crash.

4)The chain won't break has not broke after the past year and a half.

5)Clipless pedals are easy.

6)I have a bunch of miles in, I won't bonk.

7)I am feeling great, no chance of me being sick in the morning.

8)My frame is tough it won't break.

9)I don't need a pump since I don't flat.

10)There is never huge amounts of obstacles on the selected route.

11) Hell, it's only 3 AM, why don't I eat 4 pounds of Mexican food?

12) I won't need tights or arm/leg/knee warmers. It's supposed to be sunny and warm tomorrow.

13) I won't need my rain pants and jacket. It's supposed to be sunny and warm tomorrow.

14) I won't need my lights. The ride should only take 6 hours and it's supposed to be sunny and warm tomorrow.

15) I'll be right down in Tassie -- I've never broken a chain before in my life. (actually, I did make that mistake. :( )

19. I think tomorrow will be a good time to try my new pedal clips.

20. My knees feel GREAT now! I'm sure a few bunnyhops and kickers wouldn't hurt them.

21. There is no-chance any fool will be on the trail just past the blind corner, It's like 7am- lets do the run TOP SPEED!

22. I haven't endo'd for months, that must mean I'm really good rider, maybe I'll push it today and go ride some rocks...

23. I don't need two waterbottles. I'm already hydrated. I only need one.

24. There is no chance of me getting swooped my magpies! It's spring and breeding season has just begun so, I should be right :)

AjAx 10-11-04 02:52 PM

This is horrible! Just reading these makes me scared to get on my bike this afternoon. No more, No more........

28) Where'd I put the Preparation H?

Doctor Who 10-13-04 03:25 PM

29) Why yes, I do enjoy eating 1.5 pound bean burritos at 3 AM.

LapDog 10-13-04 08:53 PM

30) So my cell phone battery charge is low, I don't need to charge it - probably won't need it anyway.

31) I'll be okay, I know of several Port-O-Johns along the route.
32) Sure, I can ride tomorrow. The wife (spouse, S/O) said were not doing anything.

a2psyklnut 10-15-04 12:14 PM

34. I don't think she has a boyfriend, I'll go for it!

35. No sherrie occifer, it washn't meeee that just pee'd on uuurr car! (Underbreath: PIG!)

a2psyklnut 10-15-04 12:17 PM

36. Maybe I should go ahead and lace up that new rim.

37. Rebuilding my fork (bleeding brakes...etc.) shouldn't take any time at all.

38. My headset was feeling good yesterday, not too tight, not too loose.
39. Nah, I don't need to put any Simple Green on my rims.
40. I hope that I don't pull a muscle taking the bike off the rack.
