    Lifes best fixed moments

    When I'm riding along side of a long mirrored glass window building,
    Pedals spinning I catch a glimpse of myself flying by.

    Riding down the lakeshore tonight with a crazy tail-wind through mist at about seven sans people. That was nice.

    I'm pretty sure [165] is going to get pissed.

    That being said, I totally feel you on the mirrored window thing. I also like skidding around people who cut me off while walking. Scares the crap out of them if you get sideways enough.

    the mirrored thing is pretty great, i also had a proud moment today where i saved myself after throwing my chain and dragged my heels to stop, it's a really good feeling to know that you can handle it when something goes wrong.

    There's the bridge in Atlanta that goes over an expressway and when it's dark all the headlights from the cars below cast a shadow on the bridge wall of my bike wooshing by. It's priceless.

    happened today;

    i was going down a big hill, i was doing half rotation skips to maintain control, halfway down my foot comes out of the pedal, i didnt even trip out i just caught the bottom of the pedal pull up to a skid, calmly placed my foot back into the toe clip and kept going like it didnt even happen.

    thinking about the worst case scenarios while riding has finally paid off!
    im a ****ing idiot. well, im happy to admit it.

    Love it!! You can't make out any indication of spokes... your tires look like they're floating in your forks.

    If that doesn't work, you need to find a more awesomer girl.

    A couple weeks ago during the RELoad Bags race when I was trackstanding at a red light and a woman next to me actually rolled down her car window with her mouth gaping open, staring at me doing it. haha
