Anyone get out a little today?

Post by Teethgrinder » Tue Apr 01, 2008 8:55 pm

Happy Tuesday, DAMN.

Given the the Weather Gods are smiling today, I "worked from home", and went out for a spin as soon as time and mind-numbing spreadsheets allowed.

I went out to explore my new Frederick surroundings for a few minutes.

I found that New Design Rd. is long, straight, and a good place to see if that 3rd LCD digit on the speedo is working properly. :ride:

I found that the young girls that work at the M.O.M.s organic market where I buy my Virgil's Root Beer are both cute and personable.

I found that I am more irritated than I originally thought about the fact that I have to hide my bikes in a storage unit. What a pain.

There is something so disheartening in the prospect of keeping the majestic, furious howl of an Italian Desmoquattro twin in a sheet-metal storage mausoleum, along-side unwanted sofas, unused lawn equipment, and other things that people don't care enough about to keep near them. It's like the disgruntled-looking tiger in the tiny pen at the zoo, next to all of the other disgruntled animals that you know very well would look completely different in the proper habitat. A travesty, I tell you. A crime.

I blame my wife for just having to have the house, even if it has no garage. I was perfectly happy in my little shanty apartment that had a garage.


Did you get to ride a little today and take advantage of the newly-returned sun?

Edit: Rather than eat DAMN bandwidth, I figured I would just post a link to the rest of my bike blog here for you guys to check out. I put bike things in there for later reference, like ride reports and the like. Enjoy.

Rub it in.

Although I feel you on the no garage thing. I solved it by having a shipping container dropped in my yard. I'm waiting for the jackasses from the Department Of Lawn Nannies to come hassle me about the ugly thing. All I can say is ... f_ck YOU, MONTGOMERY COUNTY, I'm moving. :twisted:

I made it into the city, D.C., for a round of girl watching, wheelies, and a couple romps through the twisty section of the park.

I spent the nicer part of the afternoon, (after I got out of bed), in my pickup truck with my young son strapped in next to me. I was serving as my wife's personal chase vehicle, following her around so she could practice her street riding skills.

I knew I was shooting myself in the foot, when I helped my wife get a bike and learn to ride. Someone has to watch the baby, and its rare to get a third person to do that, so its either myself or her. But I'm happy she is very excited about riding.

I did get to ride into work though, was nice on the way in. I'm sure it will be 40 degrees on my way home.

Got out from 5 -7 pm -- warm, but gusty winds. I am still waiting for that wonderful combo of warm, dry, and calm that I haven’t felt since some time last October or Nov. Did a circuit of back roads around Boonsboro and visited the folks. Better than clocking OT at work.
