ABC hand check
Flying down the street so long
Wind in my helmet

From my son.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

It has taken 30 minutes to figure out how to log in here again. Time wounds all heels.

New addition to the harem

It seems that just when I decide that I have too many bikes and stop looking for another project. One will fall in my lap.

This “new” bicycle is a Raleigh RSW (Raleigh Small Wheel according to the late great Sheldon Brown) Compact. My assumption is that she is from ’68-’70 because of the bronze green color and she is all original but for the tires.

These are the before pictures I usually forget to take. I am very excited about this project! Thus far the only snag I have come across is that I can’t find a source for the white 16×2.0 tires.  I can find some that are knobbys but I don’t quite feel it wouldbe right. Schwalbe has the right size and tread but in black only. I’ll probably go that way.

I’ll try to keep abreast of the progress and post them up as I go along.

Motivation

Tonight after basketball practice with my 3rd grade boy’s team I had imagined coming home and getting on the rollers for some real effort.

However, things changed. When getting our stuff together at the Rec center. I found that the basketball I have had since I was 18 was stolen. Needless to say I was mad, which killed my motivation.

So I am looking forward to tomorrow. Maybe I’ll get a ride in.

I forgot…

I forgot I had created this Word Press blog until I had someone ask how and where they could make one of their own.

I see that there have been a few changes here. I think I’ll try and hang out here more often.

The Wind

The wind,

 

 

            Today, it was all around me.
Blowing this way and that.
And I just tucked into it,
And let it wrap me in it’s evil charms.


Granted,

 

I was not going very fast into the bosom of the beast,
But feeling its chilly embrace,
I knew she was somehow helping me
become a better person

This is from FGGF and describes quite well how I felt yesterday. Pushing against the North wind blowing in our snow falling today.
