Thursday Evening

Rode the bike two days this week, Wednesday AND Thursday.  Or maybe it was Tuesday and Thursday.  Can't remember, except I'm PRETTY sure today (Thursday?) was one of them.

Really got to oil that chain, and put on new brake shoes.

Probably will drive tomorrow, got a couple of errands to attend to.

Rode the bike to work today.  That makes two days this week!  Three if you count Sunday, and my calendar does!!

Not much mileage, but it is better than not riding at all, says I.

The NiteRider Mako headlight with its seizure-inducing strobe is at least as bright as the Malibu halogen 25 watt lamp I've been using for many years, although I'm sure the battery life of my five-pound gell cell was a bit longer.

I'm not sure what the tailight blinkie is doing, it sure isn't strobing the whole street around me like the Radio Shack green/yellow strobe did, but then the Mako headlight is strobing reflective street signs a football (American) field's length away!

That is all I got for today!

It's Monday

I rode to work today, I think it was the first time since May or June.  Everything went well, and the Mako headlight blinked its fit-inducing strobe furiously. 

So much for that sentence.

I also rode home, curiously enough.

Tomorrow I must drive, as I have to get shot in the afternoon.

A Little Oot And Aboot

It's pretty cool and overcast so I went for a little bike ride (7.14) miles on Jamis this morning, up to Fletcher Hills and back.  Nothing much of consequence occurred, looked for some geocaches but did not find them, checked my Costco and Drive-In caches, they look OK, although the Costco one is gonna need some new camo soon.  I check on the other guy's cache at Sharp, the one he replaced the other day.  Didn't find it at first, as he moved it to another spot.  Sneaky!  Do I get credit for a new find since it is moved?  No, I do not.

The odometer today was at 12,610 miles at the end of the ride.  Just for the record.

Here's a link to the short'n'crummy little loco movie I uploaded to YouTube to show someone what I am spending my riches on.  If you are following the other blog (And you really should, you know!) you may have already seen this.

That is all I have for today!

I rode EXACTLY ten miles round trip this morning, over to work, but not to work.  Did not get into any altercations with automobiles or their diverse drivers.

I do not believe I have anything else to report.

Monday Morning

I rode up to do my labs this morning, since I didn't have to fast, but it turned out that apparently SOME of the labs required fasting, so I guess I'll have to fast and come back another day to do the rest of them.  But I have an email in to the doctor who will, I am full of hope, clarify everything for me.

I just remembered I have a bike in the shoppe, and I haven't heard from them.  I better call them.  Bye!

Sat Morn

Ten point four mile bike ride up to Fletcher Hills and back.  Which I am sure does not make up for sitting in the computer chair ALL DAY (nearly) yesterday.  Check on the pine tree cache, it is ok, the landscapers I saw Thursday did not disturb it.  I used the new blinky lights most of the time because the sky was like all overcast, man.

The slightly rotated thumb shifter is slightly easier to shift, but it is still pretty awful.  I think I shall have to go to a friction shifter.  Who needs indexing, anyway?
