I worked at the bike shop today, I only got to help 3 sepearte parties, but sold 2 bikes and ~$1200 of stuff. Not bad for my first day I guess.

So I rode to work on my track bike, and then to my second job, and a night ride home. 14 hour day.

3/22, 41 Miles

Perfect weather today!

Flatted at 30 miles, the local hoodlums broke bottles all over the Joliet Junction MUP on Joyce
road between Jefferson and McDonough (near Walmart).

The wind was muy divertido late this afternoon. Thankfully Psimet pulled 90% of the way.

And it was my first ride with the semi-new Shimano compact. Sweet lord, but that thing shifts light years better than the old FSA Gossamer!

got in 32 early miles today.. and then did the "superman" trick and changed into my horse riding gear... it's nuts!! It's going to be difficult to split my time between cycing and horse riding this spring/summer... oh two loves are painful, LOL!!

I guess I will just have to get up and cycle super early on Sundays
