Maybe this is just a Thomas Keating appreciation post (Look at that handsome devil!) but we got in a great ride on Saturday to Canyon Lake and beyond. Cloud cover, rain, dirt, sunshine, and wind, this ride had it all. Great times with great company.
As A Bike Commuter,
Some days are harder than others. The bright side is that today, a school bus full of children learned to always watch for cyclists. A few may have even wet themselves. I almost did.
Alright guys, lets talk about STP last night. Last week I had a very soft start which meant that I had to ride through everyone else’s thick cloud of dust. I have terrible allergies so I was sneezing my ass off for 2 days after that. This week I decided to go for the holeshot to avoid the huge cloud of dust (death incarnate). Got second through the holeshot, but then I forgot that halfway through the lap, the course loops through the starting point (death incarnate). Long story shirt I DNF’ed due to a mild asthma attack, sneezing for 2 minutes straight, and enjoying a cold, refreshing beer.
So the point is that it’s time for some new allergy medication. I mean I’ll still ride ride dirt with a group but I kinda have to make it through the rest of the week as well.
And thanks for the pics Dirty!
But can we talk about that Stoemper headbadge?
I don’t know if it’s exactly a good thing how well I can relate to this post on DC but I like to think it means that I’m fully enjoying my youth.
