I spent the weekend spending too much money on food, beer, and bike parts. Now I’m going to be poor for a week and a half. So much for being financially responsible.
I also almost hot hit by a car on Sunday night. It was dark, but I was well lit and wearing a reflective vest. The car coming up fast behind me left some tire on the road to keep from hitting me. It was certainly a bit of an adrenaline boost. The guy/gal driving was speeding and overtaking a car on the right when it happened. This was on Eastern Parkway. I had no time to react. I brushed it off at the time, but it’s been bothering me all day today.
I don’t need money to have fun. I met up with Tim for some more ‘cross after work today. I hadn’t bothered to bring cycling clothes to work with me, so I was riding a touring bike (with fenders!) on a ‘cross course while wearing business casual (I lean more to the casual side).
Normally, nobody would notice, but there was a sizable group of cyclists practicing. This group was nearly 50% women. Young, attractive, fit women. Yikes. I had to get out of there.
