ride

Have I mentioned that I love my single speed road bike? Well I do.

It's so simple, so fun to ride, so low maintenance and such a huge mental break. You might not think that shifting causes mental stress but it does. Because I say so.

Today I got out with Justin A (teammate) and Neal G (teammate and sponsor) and we had a good time chatting and catching up. We also got lucky with the weather as our ride corresponded exactly with the dry part of the day. As we pulled in to the finish the rain drops started. Gotta love that.

Our pace was supposed to be moderate and I guess it sorta was but we covered that ground pretty fast and did not lollygag at all. It also was not too cold even though the seasons are definitely changing. I had a great time. As is evidenced by my expression.
