Giving up cycling

This whole pedaling thing is so last century. I am thinking of doing professional juggling or miming.

Why is it that when people decide to get a new life, they always want to become mimes?

It's a natural progression.

Why do you have to give up cycling for juggling anyway? They're not mutually exclusive.

Awesome. Alas I do not have hand eye coordination for that. I can barely ride a bicycle as it is.

Anyway good news! I have reconsidered my decision and will be sticking with cycling. I even went out to Kings to celebrate with some hill intervals. For my valiant effort I was almost taken out twice by the cagers. One was a minivan driver of which decided to pass on a blind left corner (from driver perspective), another by some homeboys in POS muscle car who were trying to keep up with a corvette and thought it was completely acceptable to cut left turn (idiot driver perspective). I mean they were entirely in my lane. I hope squirrels eat their nuts while they sleep, so they don't reproduce.
