Okay, so I got up this morning and it was snowing-raining so didn’t ride into work. Call me a wuss, but I’m making a conscious decision to not ride in the rain. I don’t like it, and there are plenty of killer days to be had in which to ride.
That also means I probably won’t be doing Critical Mass tonight either – since it would involve me bussing it home early, grabbing the wheels and hauling ass back to downtown .
Sorta bummed about that, but so be it.
Last night was the weekly Thursday .83 ride.
Went down and around out to Georgetown and terminated at the Jules Mae Saloon. I’d never been there – very cool place. Left a little early with a posse of others because Dave wasn’t feeling so well. Rode the final leg with this crazy fucker named Nick – who was riding home to friggin Everett. Heck of a nice guy, but crazy as hell. Said it took him a little over 2 hours to get there on the Interurban trail. Who knew?
I was home by 11pm and in bed by 11:45. Not too shabby.
Tomorrow however is the first (and probably only) annual Taco Truck Time Trial.
“…a checkpoint-themed alleycat-style bike race starting at 20/20 Cycle, 2020 Union St., Seattle, WA, on March 29th, 2008, beginning at 3:27PM, with signups commencing about 2:30.”
“..Riders will leave, time trial mode, in staggered starts, and head in a southerly direction to somewhere on Rainier Avenue where they will have the option of downing, for time bonus points, a taco or other comestable at one of Seattle’s finest taco trucks. (For additional bonus points riders, may also have the chance to abet their meals with New Belgium pale ale.)”
Theres details about prizes and schwag and the like in the article, so go read and plan to attend.
For the record, I’m not racing. I’m just riding it.
