5-10

I've just been riding around town since we got done with the Century. No real speed or consistency really. I would love to go today. Housework first though...sniff.

It Was...something else

Yup...it was dejavu like...haven't I been here before riding into a headwind?...and ps...add on flat tires! Yes...I said flat tireS...Plural. Poor poor Jim...Mr. Big Boy of the Blues Bike and Fitness himself who had to take care of my NAUGHTY Terry. That little hussy blew a sidewall AND then got herself another flat before my ride was over. I could have spit bullets had I only had enough spit. Yah...it was hot too. The ride out to Beatrice was a bit of a BITCH because of the headwind which was strong. Just when we turned to head back to Lincoln, after passing a SLOW MOVING TRACTOR...I was heading into speed heaven with a tailwind and KABLAAAMMM I ran over a big damn rock! I was soooo mad. That's when I blew a big damn split in my sidewall. Jim came by to help a poor blonde and because the tires are odd size he rigged it up with chewing gum and a gum wrapper (just kidding). Anyway...to make a long story short...Jim fixed my hussy bike twice, hauled Cindy and I around, took us to his shop (which by the way I LOVED!) got one of his dudes to put on a couple new tires, Cindy and I shopped , I got a new speedometer, water bottles, looked at bikes, drooled, dreamed and then we went back to Cindy's brothers house in Kearney where we drank a cold beer and crashed for the night.

Century Ride Awaits Us

July 9, Cindy and I will be riding 100 miles from Lincoln Nebraska to Beatrice and back to Lincoln for the Cornhusker Games. I'd like to get in another ride before we do that but life is hectic now and it's iffy at best.
Funny thing...I got a flat tire...in my own driveway! Never got one on the BRAN ride, any other ride for that matter...just my own damn driveway.
Good grief...I hope this isn't a sign of what's to come.
