For some reason, I had to tell you all about my
Washington, D.C bicycle
adventure yesterday. While I was glad
that I got to ride a little bit while I was up there, I wouldn’t really
classify it as anything quality. Sure,
it was fun, but I need to be in the woods.
Tuesday night I was.
Finally, the weather cooperated and we were able to get back to our regularly-scheduled Tuesday Social. This time we went to BackYard Trail, and I was amazed at how many people were out there. Several group rides were taking place, and ours was the last to roll out. We had a huge group wandering all over the trail at a social pace, and I have to say that it was the most fun that I’ve had on a bike in a long time. Well, except that I was riding gears.
I’ll get into that later. As in tomorrow.
I'm still not used to riding gears, or suspension. My geared bike is fun and all that, but sometimes I feel like it's not meant to be ridden locally anymore. It feels out of place.
I rode TK-421 like a single speed (I haven’t gotten around to converting it yet), most of the time because I would forget to shift. I still had a good time, and I’m glad so many people came out. I only took the one photo (see above), which should tell you that I was too busy having a good time to worry about capturing images.
Who gives a shit.
Of course, much beer was consumed at the ride’s conclusion. Fine hoppy beverages and good food, paired with good conversation made for a great night.
I love this bike shit.
And I love short blog posts.
