|how many bike pics are too many?|
It wasn't long and it wasn't fast, that's for sure. This morning I saw a few tweets about people getting out for a ride and then I was asked by a new twitter friend if I was going to ride today. I looked over at my bike, all set up on the trainer and then spied the sunshine and though what the heck! Ummmm ok, I need to stop doing these things last minute because holy mother of .... it was COLD out there! I suited up and then remembered that all I own are bike shorts. No problem, I'll just throw on my running pants over the shorts. My socks are ankle socks, hello cold ankles. I did layer my shirts and two jackets which seemed to be ok but I still wasn't out long enough or riding hard enough to stay warm. By the time I rounded my house the first time I called it, I was too cold and my front tire was looking a bit dodgy.
BUT I did it.
I have a list of things I need to buy so I can do that again because it is so much better than riding on the trainer. In the right clothes I'd do it again in a heartbeat (on a sunny and dry day).
I won't complain though, it just means more shopping!
That's all I got..
(Scott, I know you can't get on twitter so I posted for you but I couldn't keep it to 140 characters, sorry).
psssst go read John's blog, it's called Toe Tags and he said some really nice stuff about me there... just wow!
