I’ll be brief. I would have said, I’ll be short but I always was. Short short, not short rude. Mostly. Never mind.
I mentioned in my last post that I had caught myself being overrun by old habits and timetable clashes. This morning confirms that I have resolved the issues. I rode my bike for the fifth consecutive day with 3 rides starting close to sunrise (hi Al).
I was a little fatigued in the legs this morning because I rode 53km (33mi) arriving home at 6pm yesterday so the fifth ride was a bit pathetic at 12.5km (7.8mi) averaging 26.5kph (16.5mph). But it was a moral victory because I went out the door. Last week, and the week before, and the week before that, I would have snoozed the alarm and hugged the pillow for an extra 90 minutes. I am declaring that ride a zero score as per the rules of the revolution. On the upside, I finish university at 3pm so there is still hope of a 60+ minute ride this afternoon. And with the moral and motivation up there’s a good chance I’ll pull it off.
I’ve got 6 hours on campus today and 8 hours Thursday so I’ll probably go quiet until Friday. Please be patient because in my breaks I will be dictating to myself my recollections of an epic bike story which will be my Friday post. So if any of you bump into Robbie McEwen before the end of the week, let him know that come Friday he’ll be famous in a way that only being featured in my blog can achieve.
And the title said a joke
Not so much a joke but a bumper sticker. Now that I’m out on my bike a fair bit, I’m seeing a lot more bumper stickers. I may have to start a theme – bumper sticker of the week.
Here’s what I saw:
Yell out if you like
peace and quiet.
What have you seen on the vehicle in front that made you laugh?
