    today i rode with some dudes from the it dept we work for at the college

    me, another commuter (who does annual tours like tour divide etc) and a guy who used to race with a team (kissena) that hasnt ridden at all this year

    2 of us took our track bikes and the former racer took out his new caad10 and i was surprised at how much faster we were on track bikes

    was beautiful out and really it wasnt that hard of a day, took them to the state line lookout which neither have seen before and just bsed for a while, hammered home

    riding with bros is great tho, you go so much faster without even realizing it. i could get used to this
    ride bikes, eat food. the circle of life.

    Another canyon ride but I was engulfed by a giant group of middle aged rich guys and it was so freaking hot up there I had to take a break under some cool shade, which there isn't much of, and I felt like **** for the thirty miles back home. Now pizza and beer because I feel bad.

    Was planning on going for a ride this morning, but ended up sleeping in until 11:30, oops. Now getting all cleaned up and then heading off to a friend's wedding near Union Square.

    I'm not saying it's right or good for anyone's health/safety.

    It you really want to split hairs here and compare riding without a helmet to other examples of stupid things people do on a daily basis, do a little research regarding the amount of literal poison in the vast majority of readily-available American food before enjoying your next meal.

    Point well taken.

    I try to eat organic, dairy free, gluten free and all that jazz, I guess we're all gonna die from something. I choose to have that death be by sharks with lasers attached to their heads.

    I guess it's different in Chicago, but among my friends the people who get scolded, chastised, and made fun of are the few who don't wear helmets. Most of my friends -- who, if you saw them you'd immediately judge as too-cool-for-school hipsters even though they are genuinely nice, creative, and awesome people -- wear them.

    I wear mine about 90+% of the time, but there is the occasion when I'm going only a short distance on slow residential streets or paths, or other rare circumstances, when I don't. I actually hate that I get scolded like a little kid about it, because I am an adult who can make decisions to do things that are risky and it's my own damn business if I do. I mean hell, now I hear that helmets are required gear for downhill skiing and snowboarding and I sure as hell didn't wear a helmet for the 20 years of my life that those were regular activities.

    heh, still have my original Skid Lid and Bailen, but given that the majority of my cycling is slow / lonely commutes, i haven't worn a helmet regularly in years. that said, trailriding on the SSMTB? oh yes.... . i'm not renowned for good judgement.....

    Or if you text/are on the phone will driving/biking, have a couple beers at the bar then bike home.

    I'm not against wearing a helmet but people act like if you have a helmet on you are going to live through any crash, all it does is protect you from head injuries, it's not going to do much when you get right hooked and go under the car.

    My ex used to get mad at me, I bought her a helmet and told her she can't ride with me unless she wore it. I ride aggressive and fast and I wouldn't be to happy if got smashed trying to keep up.

    I agree, its not an automatic ticket to safety. But I personally don't feel safe going 20+ miles per hour on a bike with all that risk not to wear one.
    Same with motorcycles, I would never ride my motorcycle without a helmet, I get nervous riding near people without them (not NY obviously).

    Today, I continue to learn about tubeless tires....popping beads at 120psi makes a very loud bang, more fun with the slime crap in the tire because it sprays all over you.

    not trying to stir the **** here but the only accident i ever was in on my bike was less than 500 feet from my home when a 62 year old man didnt stop at a stop sign, i was going to my gfs house thats .4 miles away.

    chances of getting into an accident have nothing to do with how far or where you are or if you have a condom in your pocket or not

    Today I spotted a good deal on some KRK monitors. Moving back to school gave me a good excuse to get something smaller and nicer than my big pioneer towers.

    Oh, and to be bike related - I wear a helmet when I ride ever since I had a head injury that should have been a lot worse. I was just on a normal ride back to my car and I rode over a crack at just the wrong angle.

    I got the r5's too. They're 1st gens that I found at a pawn shop for a steep discount because one of the dust caps was dented. Fixed it in about a minute haha.

    Today I took state champ in a match sprint tournament and a scratch race for cat 4/5. Got silver in a 500m TT.

    Tomorrow is a points race and a 3km pursuit, both of which cater to my strengths. Six points leading in the omnium. Stoked. You guys finishing up track season?
