First piece of good news: March was a strong month for riding and put me ahead of schedule. First piece of bad news: April will be a weak month and be about 200Ks short. Second piece of good news: The 600 or so Ks I'll be riding in the first week or so of May should fix that. :) Second piece of bad news: My Bikejournal ranking is dropping and as the summer kicks in for the northern hemisphere riders that'll only get worse. Final piece of good news: The 6 or 7 100K rides I'm about to do will at least temporarily push me back up the list. Maybe even into the top 10%. I live in hope. :)
And now for a riff on a certain series of credit card ads...
Goretex socks: ~$50 Commuting in the rain and arriving at work wearing sandals with warm dry feet: priceless.
I'm not sure where this quote is from (Billy Connolly?) but "There's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing" is all too true. And I have good clothing. :)
