It was a good route, too- lots of options of shorter or longer. I'm guessing I'll be seeing a lot of these roads over the next couple of months. Speaking of seeing the road--
I wasn't wearing the Contour (tough to mount with the wing style bars) so he was resorting to just taking a picture with his phone of some of the rolling hills we were working on.
I was pissed I didn't have the Contour running, though- we almost hit a deer! We were hot footing it down a hill close to home at a little over 30mph when we heard a rustle and 3 deer jumped out in front of us. Luckily: Einstein was paying attention and eased on the binders (I've been telling the cheap prick I need new pads...), the third deer we were most likely to hit scrambled across the road a little faster, and we managed a nice swerve to avoid. Nice!
So far this year now we've had a family of goats and now a family of deer jump out in front of us... I can only imagine what the rest of the year will bring.
Here was the colorblind jersey sported for the ride... can't really miss us with this one either- huh?
|the back is even worse- there's pink mixed in!|
Oh, and one of our favorite rides is scheduled for a day we can actually go-- I was worried we were going to miss it due to a schedule conflict. It was raining for the ride last year, but it was still a LOT of fun. And the ride is only $25, and benefits the local community center which features a great program for low income senior citizens. Win/Win/Win and... Win!
Lastly, the maintenance schedule for the next day or two includes poor Blu getting that brake lever fixed, I think Monster might finally get that new rear sprocket, and I'm due for getting those deraileur cogs cleaned.
