Wednesday, April 30th

Friday the 18th of April

music: Floodland-Sisters of Mercy
mood: Not bad sunny and getting warmer

Oh well, Friday came and off we went. The riding was beautiful. Short, but lots of fun. I hope you had a good time riding as well. The only bad part about the current riding is the soggy ground. We have to stop and walk a lot to go around the wet areas, so that the trails don't get ruined. I think in a little bit, we are going to do some maintenance on the trails. They were really damaged over the winter and there have been some illegal motorcyclists on the trails this last week and they are damaging the trails because it is really soft and they'll do a burnout and gouge a nice sized hole .

Flats, lots and lots of flats

music: TV Party Tonight-Black Flag
mood: bummed

angry, grr Well, I was ridden a week ago on a Tuesday afternoon and suffered a twig puncturing my front tire. Limped home and got my tube fixed, then the next day, I went on a long ride and noticed my front tire again had a thorn in it this time, but I was almost home by then and so no big deal. Replaced the front tube and then parked for the night with the hopes of being able to get a short ride in on the Thursday. Well, Thursday arrived and my pedaler checks the front pressure and it is still at 40psi. Then the rear tire check shows it to be low. So off the rear comes and low and behold another thorn in the rear tire. These flats are getting kind of old and expensive.

Fixed again, but the time to ride was gone, maybe the Friday, the 18th of April will be a good day to ride.

Riding instead of blogging

music: The Damned
mood: Fantastic

Long time no blog. Sorry, well a little sorry at least. Shortly after the last blog, the weather got cold and snowy and rainy when not snowy. It seemed like every other day was another snow day. I tried to ride more frequent, but the constant snow didn't allow it. Then my pedaler decided to get the flu for a full week of fevers and general malaise. I almost felt sorry for him, but did he check on me to see if my tires had air, was my chain lubed, or other such details. No!!

Oh well, it served him right to then not be able to ride for another three weeks after that. Then instead of pedaling me, he went to pedal the spin bikes at the local YMCA. Boring!!! Going nowhere fast. Ha, ha ha!!!

Finally, the beginning of April showed up and spring break was upon us and the kids gone and the weather crappy, he tried to ride a few more times with me and I was able to wear him out with the little bit of riding to an from the trails.

More later
