So I am finally feeling good enough to ride again, boy-oh-boy lyrngitis is the pits!
I decided to hop on my new road bike today and ride up to Gold Ranch just past Verdi from mi casa...round trip 35 miles, it was great to be out! I made sure I road with music so I was breathing steadily, gosh Taylor Swift is a good one to sing along to! ha! I am pretty exhausted right now.
On the road again...I do have to admit that I passed my far share of road bikers today, most of them were nice and gave the little roadie wave, others tried to act uber tuff and ride right on by wicked fast. I laughed extra hard when this one guy, was DECKED out head to toe in all the gear. At one stop light I stopped and looked over and he looked really goofy, like an alien. Long spants, booties, lobster minutes, sponsors all over the place, bells and whistles like crazy attached to his bike...of course he had to sprint away from the light once it turned green....good on you buddy! ha!
So I have to admit that road biking is kinda' funny. I never really feel like I am getting much achieved, I ride from point A to point B and then back to A...HOORAY! If you encounter any type of "terrain" (pot holes and stuff) you have to worry about going over your handle bars and flat tires. You do get to go wicked fast if the wind is at your back which is fun! Last season I spent more time on my roadie than I did Sparky...hummm.....I wonder if that will happen this year.
Well I am always looking for people to ride with!
