I'm 44 and live in Davis and own a house, a green Honda Accord and a white Volvo. We took our cat to a holistic vet. My wife and I are so typically Davis that pretty soon the city is going to make us wear those ankle bracelets with transmitters so we can't leave town.
Until then, I heard about the Oakland Scrape Alleycat and it actually sounds fun. I really don't know my way around Oakland, but I do ride in traffic a lot. The entry fee is only $5 and my wife can visit her family in Walnut Creek that day.
The race is a benefit for helping underprivlidged kids get on bikes, a cause I truly believe in.
I don't doubt my physical ability to do it. I ride 20-25 miles on my fixed gear all the time, sometimes further.
Should I do it, or should I stick to time-trials on Putah Creek road?
