So the rest week has come to a close. I rode a grand total of 5.5 hours...relaxing. It was nice not to come home and swing a hammer for hours after a ride as well.
Of course, when one project ends, another begins. Plans are forming for the THIRD re-do of the bathroom. Why third? Well, children destroy things....
No ridey on Saturday, as everyone was doing other things. I did other things as well.
Service Course got cleaned out and re-organized for the first time in a long time. It was like an episode of 'Hoarders'.
I found detritus in there that was of unknown origin. How the hell did two MTB handlebars end up in SC? And why the hell did I keep them?
All told, I got rid of a full garbage bag full of crap, a wheelbarrow load of crap, and the giant, old chair that took up entirely too much room.
Now it feels almost spacious...well, as spacious as a 12x16 building can feel. Felt like something was missing though...
OH YEAH...MY RIDLEY FRAMESET STILL HASN'T COME BACK YET....!!!!!!!
Nice ride on Sunday. Good group again. A BIG meandering loop out thru Calhoun, up into Swansea, and back in. A cool 101km for a Sunday. It was harder than a Sunday ride usually is, but I believe it was more perception than actual effort. No real riding all week, than jumping back in with a 3.5 hour ride with the Pro/1 State RR champ, and a a guy training for Haute Route. The rest of us were just flotsam at that point anyway.
I had a 30 minute bad patch, but thankfully came around after chugging a full bottle of HEED, and power-eating two packages of SportBeans, and a GU.
Fun TdF thus far. Crazy stuff going on. Buses getting stuck. Crashes. Dogs running out. Cav whinging, as usual. As an aside, is Corsica beautiful, or what? No re-hashing here, as I trust everyone is watching...
Here's the tentative July 6th loop in Tryon. It looks a bit daunting, but let's be honest. It's two big, long climbs, with a bunch of little ups and downs thrown in.
Back on the horse this week...
See you guys on the road. Enjoy a rainy Monday! I'ma watch the Tour, and then run errands. The excitement is palpable.
