Random Musings

  • teamFIRE's new name - teamDINE&DASH
  • Ya gotta love the weather in September.
  • Last night's ride was really fun for me - had no problem staying with a 28-30 mph paceline on the way into Roca, and stayed with the group (even passing a few) up the hill on the east side of Roca. Couldn't have done either of those things last year at this time. It's always nice to feel any improvement, no matter how small.
  • Great post-ride gathering - highlighted by margaritas, nachos, C-rad trying to avoid getting set up, and Jendeluxe's new hairdo.
  • Best line of the night came from a divorced rider (we'll call him Mr. Dasher) who was giving dating advice to cc-rider as Jen was trying to set up him up with one of her friends - "Let me save you some time and energy - just find a woman you hate and buy her a house."
Looks like Saturday's weather is going to be perfect for the Wilderness Perk ride - anybody going?

Last night was fun. However, it was pretty demoralizing for me. I couldn't keep up with anybody. But, I haven't been out riding distances much, so I guess it's to be expected.

The best part of the evening for me was riding home in the dark -- I LOVE that!

Sounds like I missed a good one. Although, I am still trying to figure out who "Mr. Dasher" is. Mmmm. And, Jen's such a brave girl. I have wondered what it would be like to cut the hair off, but it' s been this way for so long, I think it'd be like losing a limb.

Good times.

I might be going on the WP ride, but there's a chance I will be going through Wilderness Park on the ole mtb instead.

Nicol - I think it's gonna be a good day to toodle out to Leann's :)

:) It probably will be. I cannot believe how nice it's been lately.

Gravy, where you been? You've been more reclusive than your normal reclusive self.

I got a headcold and not having full days to rest has kept me in the limbo recovery stage... and I can't get under the limbo stick.
