Well the rides are few and far between. The weather has been less than cooperating and being a fair weather rider (actually I don’t have time to meticulously clean my bike), I’ve been avoiding going out in the rain. Well, I convinced myself that if I don’t go, I’ll get FAT so I figured that I’ll need to buy new cables, chain, pulley wheels in the spring anyway so into the rain I go! Dressing for it is another matter…and I look like I’ve gained back all those pounds that I cycling off this spring, but its just hi-tech layers to keep me dry, or at least semi-dry.
With my other 6-8 hours/week of not training its being replaced by more creative or mundane things like making cycling caps. I can’t get the brim right or the bottom of the hat straight. I’m on my 5th hat and they still suck to show anyone. On the other hand, I just made 2 bike tire belts…. And they look pretty good if I say so myself. Even my socially conscious son wanted a set. I think that I’ll call them Re-Cycled Belts.
