Routine is important

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Routine is important

and getting old sorta sucks....

but having a backup bike is nice.

Saturday routine: Wife and I load up bikes and gear bags around 6:30am to go to LBS for group ride. However, my bike is already at LBS b/c I left it there after the Wed night ride for some work. The routine is broken and I'm obviously beginning to get old. About 2/3 of the way to the LBS I realize that I don't have my gear bag.



Fortunately the wife and I are in separate cars today since I have to chaperone a road clean-up in a few hours so she'll get the fast ride in.

I'll hop on my backup and get something but......

I keep a jersey, shorts, gloves, and "retired" shoes and helmet in my daily driver for that very reason.
