Been thinking about bustin' out the road bike. It's been neglected for quite some time. Pretty pathetic to have a IF Ti CJ just sittin' on my trainer in the living room collecting dust. I even got a fancy schmancy power tap hub on the back.
Got into riding on the road for a bit a couple of years ago. It's a great way to get low impact miles in. Plus you can work on the sweet farmer's tan....I'm hoping to have the best/worst farmer's tan in Lincoln.
I did my last road race two years ago and didn't have a great experience. On the final lap of the Cat 4 race around Branched Oak, some dip-shit bunny hopped a large branch that had somehow gotten on the road. Well, after he bunny hopped the branch the next two riders ran it over and kicked it up into me. It bounced off my leg and went into my rear der and nearly my rear wheel. Everyone scattered around me in anticipation of a crash that never happened. Somehow I was able to stop without going down. I got dropped trying to get the branch out and had to bridge back up by myself. Not fun. Fuck that shit.
So tomorrow, I'm gonna roll that bad daddy to work and hit Hwy 2. I say this now, but I'll probably wake up and say fuck it and just ride in on fat tires.
Guess I need to shave my legs...
