Getting back on the horse...uh, bike



Hair of the dog, man. Hair of the dog. My shoulder is a bit sore today, and I keep forgetting that I skinned up my knee when I kneel down, but I rode anyways. Charles was with me the last 9 miles.

Return from vacation and crash



I did some biking on my vacation with my wife, so nothing really challenging. We did bike around the Garden of the Gods park and Mitch park in Edmond, OK. I decided to ride from Mitch park back to our friend's house on La Belle Rue which was about 7 miles.

Today, I rode with Charles, and on the last lap, I crashed hard on the pavement doing about 14 mph. Nothing was broken that I could tell, not even my pride as my crash was pretty much unavoidable. I do have some nice road rash; and I'm sure I'll feel beat up tomorrow.

We ride again tomorrow at 330...

Sunny, warm, and windy



It was windy today. Not too much fun. But, it was also sunny and warm, so that made it better.

Cadence or Speed?



I guess we were supposed to be keeping a steady cadence. I was pushing for speed. After 6 miles at 15 mph, I gave in to Charles, downshifted and kept some sort of cadence. The only way I can see improvement is speed, so this is foreign territory.

Life catches up



Last week, life caught up to me. First it was working at the church, then threatening skies on Thursday, then actual rain on Friday, wedding on Saturday in Ohio, and returned on Sunday to have a party for two birthday boys (Trace - 24, and Grandpa - 95!!!!!).

So, back at it today with Charles.

Windy city...uh town...well, subdivision



Shorter ride with Charles. I had to wait for him at some points as the wind was playing havoc with our ride. He has a lot more surface area than I do, so I could cut through it easier.

Faster than last Monday



And with Charles too. We did this one in the evening, so it was much cooler.
