Happy Thoughts

On Wednesday night I wasn’t feeling all that hot, and I was laid up on the couch. My son, feeling sorry for me, made me a get well card, “every sick dad deserves a new bike”.   I think I’ll keep him around!

Which helmet will I wear today?
Mountain Bike or Rape, Pillage, and Plunder?

I’ve recently added another helmet to my lineup to expand my lunch time possibilities.

Lunch Riders
Thursday Lunch Ride in Ash Canyon

We rode Ash Canyon on Thursday, and found firm climbing up Ash Canyon road up until the Deer Run turnoff. We decided to climb to the top of the Four Day trail. The rest of the climb was pretty muddy and exhausting, and finally turned to snow near the Creek Trail entrance. The descent had snow in some of the corners, but was pretty good overall.  Definitely worth the effort.

It’s easy to miss something you’re not looking for!

Do you ever wonder why motorists sometimes appear to be oblivous to bicycles on the road?  It’s easy to miss something you’re not looking for!  Test your Awareness with Do The Test’s whodunnit, “Who Killed Lord Smithe?”.  How observant are you?  How did you do? More on

Have a great weekend!

  1. On Thursday morning I had my closest car v bike encounter of the year. Luckily it wasn’t the mountain bike it was the motorcycle and I had throttle power to save a certain collision. I reached the 4-way stop headed South at Washington and Mountain just ahead (In my mind at least) of a car going east to my right. If I was in my truck I would have probably gone but being on the motorcycle I waved her through. As she cleared the intersection in front of me I went straight. Just as this happened another vehicle that was directly behind her did a quick pause and go and also went straight. Luckily the bike was warm and a quick jab at the throttle had me clear. wow it was like slow motion. Other than the fact the jackass driver failed to stop the thing that pissed me off the most was the little 8 or so inch spot that the driver had cleared in the ice of their windshield. The side window was still iced over. Bottom line whoever was driving couldn’t see a thing. A left at the next block and another left then right in hopes of finding some ass to chew proved fruitless…too bad… still fired up following Men’s League Wrestling Wednesday night could have been fun.

  2. Lester…would Evil Knievel have whined this much. Do a shot, punch it and get going…..sorry about that though. It’s always an eye opener when such things happen. I’ll bet it was Jaime……
