First real shop ride tonight. About 50 degrees but no wind. Ten people showed up. Wednesday nights are the testosterone fest and your could hear a lot of "too early in the season" moaning but everybody ramped up for the water tank hill and it was on in the sprint zones so it was a fun night! I love road bikes.

I do love night rides this time of year. Taken just a few hours ago.

I'd kill to have cool roads like that.

I like to hear about all these unrealistic high-MPH averages everyone is capable of. Seriously, have a professional calibrate your cycling computers or something. Either that, or stop blowing through the red lights and stop signs.

My Wednesday ride was a bit of a death march. Tuesday I went harder than I have all year, and I guess I'm not used to two rides back to back or something.

And the cat is snoring.

Our outdoor shop rides won't start for a couple more weeks. Darn mountains get in the way of the setting sun.

Man, the trees are already blooming where you're at. We still got some snow on the ground.

Really now, I need to find out who these people are who can ride their bikes as fast as cars can, and see if I can keep up with them. That’s quite fast. I thought that being able to go 17.5 miles in an average of 45 minutes to or from my place of employment was fast, and that’s with traffic signs and stoplights.

You can't really see it in my avatar but my tounge was as firmly planted in my cheek as Dr. Roebuck's was. I really only averaged 28.7 mph.
