Last night’s ride occurred with none of the three women, Catherine included, who rode last week. I heard the ride leader state that one of the women complained about the amount of hills, but I was not there to witness this; recall last week I suffer from cramping and finished well behind the pack.
A pack of six men rode last night, I was clearly in the “B” group, along with our ride leader. Near Chastain Park our ride leader dropped off. At out regroup point someone rode back to discover that he was suffering from low blood sugar and had to stop until he recovered.
My ride was okay, suffering from the heat, my added weight, and the hills. Fortunately my tube replacing handiwork proved to be successful. Last night’s ride was the last that do until next week.
I Can’t See Black Or Blue?
Today I am once again wearing a dark blue t-shirt instead of s black one as expected. There is something about the light in my closet, whether it be the brightness or color temperature, which makes it nearly impossible for my eyes to tell the difference. I guess if my “fashion sense” mattered to me I’d get better lighting for my closet.
Getting Torqued Off
I am amazed that within all of the tools that I inherited from my father there is no torque wrench. Though some may scoff at the need of a torque wrench for bicycle maintenance I am considering buying a set for doing some work on mine. Maybe I am just being neurotic?
With $100 To Spend
Yesterday I applied a $100 gift card that I received by redeeming “Rewards Points” from Chase to my Amazon account. I am trying to decide the best way to spend this. Perhaps I will buy the aforementioned torque wrench, or maybe I will apply it to the purchase or a multi-region DVD player so that I can start watching German movies. So many options…
What would you buy from Amazon with $100? A huge bag of Gummi Bears perhaps?
Pack It Up
When I return home from work tonight, which will be later than normal as I once again am sitting out traffic by eating breakfast at Folk Art, I will be packing up the M6 for an early departure to Black Mountain tomorrow morning.
I’m a little nervous about the predicted rain today and tomorrow up in North Carolina saturating the ground on which we will camp, but with proper preparation it shouldn’t be too bad.
It’s another Spring LEAF which means that I am contractually obligated to do the zip line with Randy and the boys. I really should have done a better job of dropping some weight before my public exhibit.
ITP-Reader Stacy, I do plan on returning to trivia at some point in the future, however other things just keep getting in the way right now.
I Am Such A Rube
As I sit typing this, I am also eavesdropping on a conversation between two twenty-something ladies talking about travel abroad and terrorism. Hearing “young people” talk about their life experiences always make me wonder if I’ve wasted a lot of my life, though I am trying to make up for this now.
I keep waiting to hear one of them say “I can’t believe that old man is wearing a dark blue t-shirt and not a black one with those sneakers.”, or maybe I am just being neurotic? 🙂
