Biking without logos

Monday, July 1st, 2013

I really want to start, or better yet, since I’m lazy, find, a bicycling group that has a strict no-logo policy for group rides.  I have zero interest in riding with people who are OK with wearing a bunch of spandex advertising.  It is possible to bike for fun, without having to whore yourself out, nor look like a douche without any sense of personal style.  And I definitely don’t want to be with a group of people that get off on the pathetic ‘elitism’ that comes from having paid to race against a bunch of amateurs.  The fake charity ride you participated in should be a badge of shame, not pride.  You helped a bunch of scam artists use your hobby to enrich themselves, with the fake beard of ‘helping others’, but you and I both know that 99% of the money you paid go to the race organizers, and you want to share that with everyone else?  Go nuts, but I still think you are a loser.

 

Tracking

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

Going to start tracking how many days a week I manage to ride the muscle bike to work, over the motor bike.  3 so far this week….

Dry weather makes it easier to find the motivation in the morning.

Two days in a row

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

I have now bicycled to work, two days in a row.

If you knew me in high school, when I biked to school every day, this wouldn’t sound that impressive.

 

I think I may have to return the rear-view mirror I picked up last weekend.  It hangs off my glasses, and after minor adjustment, that works surprisingly well.  But when the mirror is off, it seems to have created a weird zone-of-confusion in my visual processing, and I think might be causing my left eye to go lazy.
