    Odd day today...

    First, when I was locking my bike outside of my bank (front wheel on quick release, so locked alongside the frame and thre rear with single kryptonite lock) I have noticed two shady characters talking about my bike.
    45 minutes later when I was out again unlocking the bike thay come again asking if I really needed to lock the bike like that in front of a bank - I snapped something about not caring about the bank since it wasn't mine and left.

    Ten minutes later I collided with another bike and went down. This was in no car zone, I was far enough into the road not to be afraid of pedestrians but this lady rode cross ways with her head turned other way. She left before I checked my bike.

    Yet another 10 minutes and I merged right about 100 feet in front of a messenger riding fully suspended mountain bike. He caught up at the next red light and said " But you are f**ked when you have to brake"

    WTF?

    What was the mtb suspended from?
    Did he have a spider suit on?

    If it were not for the odd days and the snotty humans, we'd not know which rides to enjoy.
    Hope you're enjoying yourself today.
    Namaste, friend.
    When I was little, I prayed every night for a bike.
    Then I realized the Lord doesn't work that way,
    so I stole one Then I prayed for forgiveness. -emo philips
