Don't leave home without it:

Argh! I got a flat halfway in. And wouldn't you know it...not a taxi willing to haul me and my bike. I had to push (gasp) it the rest of the way.

I hate flats.

Yes! you'll need a pump (or one of those CO2 cartridge thingies) also.

Or at the very least be able to fill up at a service station, gas station or even mini-mart -it's not like they are all very rare in this city.   But I do carry a pump everywhere just in case.

Your hair grows amazingly fast! (or is that a wig?)

Too warm for riding.

I found my bike status-post airloss-event when I went to leave this morning, and had to grab a different one. One bike away from riding studded tires to work... need to get some patching done soon.

Several unexplored theories: 

A.  Anima experiencing a hot flash? 

B.  No time to ride, too cold to ride, too warm for riding.  Does he still own a ride?

C.  He's gotta headache?  From, "My time management ended up not being up to the task of not riding."

D.  "I found my bike status-post airloss-event when I went to leave this morning, and had to grab a different one." 

E.  A & D

F.  All of the above.  ; )

Perspiration falls

regardless of the cadence

so might as well fly

 

This jump from tights, layers, fingered gloves and balaclavas to Summer garb is downright weird. I will contemplate that anomoly but will not complain about it.  The best part of Summer riding is the ease of preparation.  No thinking about what to pack, what to wear, whether to bother. You get on your bike and go.  I love when we return to being little kids without a care in the world.  Weeeee.  I have  always used the surfing metaphor, to ride the wave, when confronted by a seeming bounty of the good stuff.  It felt good to ride the wave today.

Titania is unseated from her ice throne and Oberon now warms the seat.  Although this winter I think Titania was on holiday and her stand-in didn't really have her heart in her job.

My first ride all the way to work!  Beautiful day to start.  10.4 miles, 50 minutes, from N. Portage park.

 

See you guys on Milwaukee tomorrow!
