We had a bit of a delay outside Brazil on the way home. This was the view for an hour and a half or so.
More than once I have been out on a ride and been approached by a roadie who hasn't had a clue about something such as brake adjustment, or even repairing a tube in the rain...
Dream. Dare. Do.

...bikes come and go. When i was living up in the California foothills, I finally realized I was too afraid of the
occasional crazed, toothless, pick up driver to ride road up there, and gave all the road bikes away.
You'll get another one when the time is right. Or maybe you'll keep it as therapeutic. I'm glad you're still alive, even as a mess.
Heck, out of 65 years, I bet I spent at least twenty of 'em as a mess .
I have saddle blisters on my..a**. Maybe I should have worked up to the 40 miles, instead of doing on my 3rd ride for May, but this has never happened before. I even rode out of the saddle quite a bit. Time for better shorts and a little time before I get back on the bike. Ain't no way I'm using cloth and duct tape back there to protect the blisters.
FB4K - This December, 2014, 5288 kids received bikes for Christmas. For many, it was their first bike, ever. Every bike, new and used, was donated, built, cleaned and repaired. That amounts to well over 10,000 volunteer hours this fall, just in the Twin Cities. Check us out on FaceBook: FB4K.
Disclaimer: 99% of what I know about cycling I learned on BF. That would make, ummm, 1% experience. And a lot of posts.
Time for the Weekly Wednesday "Usual Suspects" club ride. Looks like rain is coming so I think we will shorten the route a smidge.
I had pulled the Roubaix out of rotation for cleaning/maintenance, but have not started to take it apart yet, so it is the designated rain bike today.
