We had a great ride with some good conversation along with a few laughs. Too bad Matt had to teach his Sunday morning spin class and Bob was Iowa coaching his soccer team. It would have been fun to have them along. We stopped at the Fletcher Church for a photo op. After all, it is Sunday. I definitely felt yesterday's mtn. bike ride.
First were thoughts of the past summer. Despite time missed riding because of various anatomical issues it was certainly a great summer for riding. Wish I would have done more group rides. Could have helped me at Chequamegon.
Am I a roadie or dirt worshiper? Dirt worshiper by far, but I do like riding the roads.
Surly Cross Check...nice bike. Especially in black.
Bikes...sell the Stumpjumper and get a Niner One 9 or a El Mariachi ss. Then convert the Monocog to a one x nine.
More mountain bike riding next year! Maybe a trip west. Fruita?????
Arrowhead 135 has re-entered my thinking after Kenny and I discussed Pugsley and he of course mentioned the race and me wanting to do it. Could I do with the 26" ss? Not sure if that would be the best choice of equipment.
Can I justify 2000+ dollars on a Pugsley. If I lived up on the North Shore or back in Chisholm I would sell a couple of my other bikes and definitely have a Pugsley.
I should be doing school work today, but it's 80 degrees out and when this is done I'm heading back outside.
My wife during our Wednesday evening ride. She is the best. She puts up with me and deserves more credit. I really do love her.
Winky gave us about 8 individual packets of test data on our students. When the hell am I going to take the time to look at all of that. There already isn't enough time to plan during the school day. I don't even know why they call it prep time because we always end up doing other things during this time. Such as calling parents, counting fund raiser money, filling out other meaningless paper work. I have a bag full of papers that needs correcting....maybe tonight.
Sorry Winky! Don't take offense.
My colleagues are the best and I'm very lucky to work with such good people.
I left my single speed 29er with all of yesterday's mud on it. It's going to stay that way for awhile, because it is forecast to be a wet week. I NEVER leave a bike to sit dirty. It's just not right. I have a picture to prove it is not clean.
Time to hit the shower and then the deck for a couple of these.
