Thought I’d be able to ride once it warmed up some , but now it’s the tree pollen that’s messing me up.
I’ve been limiting my time outdoors and wearing a mask when I do go out .
back on the Flonase for awhile .
Tough getting old .

Hang in there, OC! The pollen is rough on me, too. Nasacort for me instead of Flonase, boosted by Benadryl when it's really bad.

Keep on keeping on!

Went to the GABA bike swap yesterday, and got some cute cycling jerseys for my daughters. Also picked up a pair of padded tights for me.

Um. Guy cycling pads and girl cycling pads are not the same. So my wife got some cycling tights. Hey, at least I got a cheap basic hardtail mountain bike: We’ve been making arrangements and plans to moving to Utah this summer, and found out today it’s going to probably work out, so I needed something to ride when the weather isn’t Arizona.

I know I’m going to miss Arizona weather.

Alright, first ride wearing shorts this year. Also just avoided a collision. I was riding in the dark with a headlamp about 2 miles from home. I'm on the right side, and coming towards me is another headlight. That cyclist is on his right side, so all should be good. Except riding next to the guy with the headlight is a girl on a bike with no light or reflective clothing, and she is in my lane and heading right towards me. Luckily I saw her through the glare of the oncoming headlight. Fricking idiots.
