Hump Day Miscellany – No. 3

I’m late. It is Thursday, not Wednesday and I apologize for that (’cause I’m sure you all just wondering where the heck is my Hump Day Miscellany).

First up – Proof that I raised my son well.

Last week I got suited up for ride wearing my bike shorts and my Peets 40th Anniversary biking shirt My son looked at me and said, “You look really official. Representing for the 40 year olds!”

I love that boy.

Next up – My beautiful Ruby Pro just sold on eBay for $1725. Someone got a really great deal because that is a $4400 bike brand new. The seller claims it was only ridden for 2 weeks. I hope it isn’t hot. I knew it would sell for more money than I have in my bike budget but I did bid on it a couple of times. Oh, the heartache!!!!

Last up – I’m all in for the metric century. All 62 miles and all of the hills. I will ride my own bike because my friend’s bike’s brakes are not working that well. I would not want to come screaming down a hill toward an intersection on that bike because I don’t think it could stop in time. Besides, I like my bike even if it does weigh a bit much.

    I almost considered taking up cycling just so I could get that shirt…and then I went to Peets, got a double espresso, and got over it. Whew…I’m glad that passed!

    Sons are smart:) Is that the hybrid you are going to ride?

    Susie – yes it is the hybrid which now has skinny tires and clipless pedals. It will be fine assuming I can get a good stroke going.
