Well, I'm one for two.
I have all kinds of excuses though.
I'm trying to "outprocess" the military base here and they make it pretty difficult (run here, run there...hurry up and wait, etc.) Of course, all of this while still trying to get a days work in kinda makes it difficult to make 15/20 minute trips to/from everywhere.
So, I biked in Monday, but had to drive today since I had to run home and grab the cat+carrier to take her to the vet and then run her home. I'll be catching a ride in tomorrow to take care of some "outprocessing". Thursday and Friday are definites. Thursday I'm meeting some friends (one riding his fixie...which I didn't know he had!) at the cafe for cappucini & brioche before work and depending on how that goes, it might be a repeat on Friday.
I've come to the conclusion that it kinda sucks living out in the boondocks. I'll be glad when I move to Anchorage next month and I'm back in a decent size city.
Fixie content: The first commute to/from didn't kick my ass too bad...I beat the rain home, which was a good thing. I rode 46:17. I'll probably flip/flop on over to my 15 since my friend I'm riding with Thursday is a hammer. I can stop quite easily, but I'll probably pick a front brake up for added insurance. I really miss my clipless pedals, but maybe it just takes time to get used to the clips. I hit a slug and caught that in the chin which was kind of gross.
Ciao for now.
