I Did Actually Get Out of the House

I’ve had a really hard time getting on the bike recently.  I hadn’t ridden since Monday.  I got an email this morning from Tim, asking if I’d like to tag along for a “recon ride” to scope out an upcoming RCCS ride.

That’s all it took, and we had a great 25-mile ride through parts of Louisville I’ve never seen.  We went down brick alleys, through historic neighborhoods, and along the Beargrass Creek Trail.  It was a nice ride.

Tim, usually one to bring a camera, was travelling light.  I had mine, and he borrowed it when we were stopped while I fixed my bike.  We were in the St. James Court area when a small tree branch got into my front wheel.  Although it destroyed my front fender, nothing else was damaged, and I didn’t wreck.  So, a quick few minutes to remove the destroyed fender, and we were off.

  1. Glad there was no crash to report!

    Weatherman is calling for much warmer weather later in the week, I am really going to try and ride.

  2. Yeah, a crash may have ruined the day. Even an un-rideable bike would have been bad. Just a busted fender? No big deal.

    I really wanted to ride today. I knew it would be cold. I’m wearing a sweater, and I’ll be driving.
