Clenbutador gifts it to Rujano...
On a side note, I hate Contadope, but DAMN he's pretty when he's dancing on the pedals!
Is it just me, or is Zoncolon steep as fuck?
Great ride yesterday! Did an easy little spin on the CX bike. It got even better when I rolled up to the house and my new Shimano Pro PLT deep drop bars were waiting on the porch. No more dumbass-ed ergo bars. Those things should be banned. Needless to say, I broke myriad traffic laws on the way to CC to get some new cables. The bars are on the Jericho and they are perfetto!
This morning, I rolled out early for the 8 o'clock ride. Didn't feel great, but went anyway, in the hopes that folks would show up. As usual, the turnout was anorexic. 4 of us rolled out through LR. Nice meandering loop that only exacerbated my poor performance, and the fact that I now felt like shit. NID and Adam split off to go back into the Fort, while Joel and I turned to go home via Double Homey.
I figured out that I was a bit dehydrated and the sushi I had for dinner just was not enough to feed my fat self. I didn't visit Mr. Bonk, but I was very close to his house.
Only wish more folks bothered to show up, especially those who wanted the ride moved to 0800 in the first place. Anyway...
85km in the big sun before 11am was just fine though.
I came home, ate the kitchen, drank Cokes and water, and fired up the new pressure washer. 3100psi and 3.5gpm make short work of whatever jobs one may have. In this case, the front of the house and the back steps. The 205cc engine also renders one with ever-so-slight cases of tinnitus and carpal tunnel syndrome. I was careful not to sweep my leg with the spray nozzle, as it would likely strip flesh from bone!
Now for a (hopefully) quiet afternoon!
