Sloooooowly.

It gives me plenty of time to think of what phony story to use to explain the scar. Right now I'm thinking shark bite, or a rope injury from belaying down Half Dome.

The AC and upper bigT ride with SFVBC on Saturday. From my house it'll be a 112 mile loop.
There's my century for November. Idiot.

Or you could go with "put fingers in bike spokes trying to clean out brakes." I mean, no one will believe you, but it could start an interesting conversation.
