Well, last night Kykr called and said let’s ride, we met in Madison at 8 this morning and headed out into a fairly thick fog. We had a great ride, almost 43 miles with over 2700 feet of ascent. We got back into Madison and were right next to our vehicles. I unclipped my left foot. I was fondly gazing at some of the local “scenery” when my bike started leaning to the right and down I went. The “scenery” did not appear to see the incident…tg.
Been a LONG time since I did that. HOWEVER, I mad sure the bike went down on top of me so I didn’t scuff it up.

It's pouring so hard here I can't see my garage. I'm guessing now would NOT be a great time to practice some CX skills...

I might end up TOGing myself.

OK, sure T0G, don't worry - I won't tell anyone what happened... Rest assured, the Lounge socks were unscathed. Great ride followed by a nice lunch among the scenery and a couple of spotted cows (the beer, no reflection on the scenery).

That a result of the fall, or memories of the scenery?:D

I almost did that today as I was waiting for a light to change. When I realized I needed to un clip my first attemot failed causing me to wildly twist again and getting out just in time to save the fall. BTW I did 72 miles today. Slackers!

2700+ feet in 42+ miles is a workout huh?.... I showed 2:59:50 not great BUT there were some pretty good climbs....

Almost had that happen yesterday. Came up to an intersection and put my hand down on the cone in the middle of the MUT, except it moved when I put pressure on it. The 12 year olds thought it was amusing

well, no sense in pushing your luck.

Congrats on becoming a verb. "So I was checking out the 'scenery' and completely forgot to unclip. I TOG'ed right there in front of everyone. Maybe I got lucky and no one else noticed...."

The bruise probably looks like my legs feel. :eek: Nice and easy one tonight... Although the scenery is more like a C+ around here most days.

+1 on "don't do that anymore". You'll have a lot of chaperones on Labor Day at least. :D
