Sure, I was tired from working nearly twenty four hours straight over the weekend. Who wouldn’t be? When I finally got home Saturday evening I was a zombie. I took a shower and tried to stay awake. I played my guitar, folded some laundry, picked my nose…
Pretty much anything that would keep me from sleeping.
Eventually I was out for the night. The plan was to get up early Sunday morning for the last race in the 2014 Charlotte Youth Cycling League. I woke up on time, but couldn’t drag my ass outta bed. I was disappoint, because I really like being out there to help the kids. It’s the only race I missed in the series, so I guess it wasn’t so bad.
I got up a little later in the morning, thinking I would go for a bike ride. I just didn’t have the energy. Instead, I decided to start crossing off some items on the “shit that needs to be done to the bikes” list. I started with the little lady’s geared bike.
Nothing to see here. Just a little chain cleaning. Well, it was a little more than that. Seems the last time she rode she broke one of the parts on her rear shifty thingy.
Luckily I bought some last weekend at The Cycle Path and installed them pretty quick. After that it was time to lube the chain with a little ProGold.
I know, this is so exciting. You want more? I washed Darth Maul, my “race” bike.
All shiny. Like a mountain bike should never be. I should get it dirty again soon.
I also washed The Executor (no photos, sorry), and by that time I felt like having a beer (or two.) Did I feel like riding too?
Tomorrow I can get into that. It’s been a long week at work so far and I need to ease back into this shit.
