I have been so busy pedaling my ass across the countryside that I haven't been able to comment on the weird and fun stuff I find out there. I'm thinking of getting more technological with some Recon Jet glasses but, no harder than I try, the statistics will be too boring to compile. I'll wait until they come with a voice activated word processing program to allow my inner child a sense of self expression. I'd be able to blog away all along the road.
On the other hand, technology marches on and there is a new effective way to improve your workouts. Simple, you want a better workout, get a heavier bike.
Yes the ice tires might actually see limited use, but the local governments are trying to make our streets more complete. I went to a recent meeting at the city hall to unveil a new plan to quiet traffic and put a very busy street on a diet. I got there a bit late and I understand the screaming and yelling had subsided, so what I heard was just intolerable bitching but not downright embarrassing.
In a more critical area, I have been wrenching away all winter and one of the things that doesn't get done in cold weather is cleaning the little parts tray I have on my work table. All winter it accumulates parts because I just don't take time to empty it in the cold. Well, it's warm enough that I took time to sort out all the parts, screws and nuts and put them in cabinet bins.
When it was done, I found myself staring at 4 ball bearings of 3 different sizes.
So I have that to think about.
