It is 5:45 AM. In 30 minutes my friend will come pick me up to go out to our ride – a metric century. It is raining. Not sprinkling – raining. I have some nylon pants (not bike gear AT ALL) and a wind breaker and that will have to do.
On the plus side, I got the bike. It is very fancy and light weight and has been fitted to me with expert care and precision. It will make me feel like a stud. I just wish I could feel all crisp and sun shiney and healthy. Oh well – a stud is a stud, right? RIGHT?!!! And healthy? Oh you bet. Only a healthy person would ride a bike 65 miles in the rain – right?!! RIGHT??!!
At least I wasn’t planning on wearing a tiara, tutu and boa like a lot of the women. This ride is the Cinderella Classic and they go all out. I prefer to be a woman of iron so no foo-foo stuff for me!
Stay tuned for a full report.
