Before I Forget
I've been trying to get a post out on this here digital crap fest for about 4 days now. Several posts are started and not finished. I guess I could say I will do them in the next day or two, but that might be a lie.
I had a few short crap rides last week, but nothing to velosturbate too much over. Today however I got out with Maltby (on his singlespeed road bike) and Seaman (on his super fly new Jamis road bike) for 80 miles of road riding. This is the longest road ride I've done in years. The roads Mike took us on were pretty mellow, and it was nice to spin along, talking and burning calories for 4.5 hours.
The ride was a pretty easy pace, but still 4.5 hours is 4.5 hours and I was happy to feel as fresh as I was at the end. Gotta give props to CarboRocket for providing the calories and to Mike for sharing that big pack of ghetto fig bars he bought at a hick gas station/cash advance joint out in the middle of fucking nowhere.
I think we passed about 300 farms and about 6 different lakes during the ride. Mike took great pleasure in me not knowing where the hell we were. I mean there as NOTHING out there at times. It was great.
Gotta get some sleep.
