Did 30ish on the mountain bike yesterday, first “big” ride after the great thumb incident of 2012. Well for me it was a great incident, for the rest of the world it wasn’t even a blip. Riding was fine, by the way, no pain in the thumb, just a bit of fear in me that I might be stupid and crash and hurt myself again. Not something I want to do, so a friend saw me walk a section I haven’t walked in a very long time. Embarrassed? Yup.
Watching the Tour de France right now too. Great thing to watch but it does seem to steal time from riding. That is because I sit here and watch skinny guys race roads in Europe and I eat and drink and gain weight. So, I will turn the goofy TV off and head out shortly.
Todays ride should be something I enjoy so I am debating heading out to Marshall VA to do a road ride, unless I get a call soon. I would really prefer to do a mountain bike ride, but the road seems safer (kind of). What now? A couple pics and let’s hope I actually go for a ride.
I may have used this pictures in the past, but my real computer is dying a slow miserable death. I need to back it up and then put her out of her misery. I’ve had the thing for four or five years, poor thing is a senior citizen of computers.
