New speed record!

| | Comments (0)

Today I managed to go for a ride that was shorter than the time I spent preparing for it. I haven't patched the leak in my back tire yet, but I aired it up last night and it still seemed to be relatively firm today. I topped it off and headed up the hills. After about six blocks I decided to check and make sure it was still retaining air.

I'm new at this and all, but I'm pretty sure stuff isn't supposed to bubble through the sidewalls of my tires.

I headed back home and logged a ride for the record books.

I've got a bike

you can ride it if you like.
It's got a basket, a bell that rings
And things to make it look good.
I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.

Actually, I bought it. And it doesn't have a basket, and all of the things to make it look good are on order from nashbar. But you can borrow it if you want, as long as you study up on how to not get hit by cars first.

I've been getting spammed out the wazoo, and I need to implement some countermeasures. Like stabbing people through the internet.

Until I figure out how to do so, comments will be unavailable. Nobody (including me) has been saying anything recently, so I guess it's no big deal.
