Attacked By a Wasp and Hit New Top Speed!
My wife and I went on our typical 16 mile, weekend ride and about 5 miles into the ride, I felt something on my leg. When I looked to see what it was, i nearly fell off my bike... it was a huge wasp! So, I start waving my right hand to get it away from me, and I think I actually hit it. As I look around to see where it went, I noticed that it's still hovering right by me. I think I pissed it off! That's when I decided to see if I can out ride it... I pedaled as hard as I could, i didn't even look at my cyclometer... all i could think about was getting away from that thing. Anyway, after a couple minutes of hard pedaling, I finally lost it. And when I looked down at my cyclometer, I noticed I hit 32.9 mph!!! This was on flat ground with no wind. Talk about having some motivation... lol.
The great thing is, I brought my camera to take some pics to post on my Tour de Cure page, so I was able to capture some evidence...
