Ricktastic Tuesday:
A message from Rick arrived at 5:18am. "I'm kind of ignoring the radar. It's warm". It's what took me thoughts about going back to bed, and rolling out the door for a good session and a solid chat.

Friendships are formed on shared experiences, and while today wasn't an epic battle together against the elements, lightning flashing bright enough to illuminate the inside of nostrils certainly took it to a step above a regular two up halfwheelathon.

I had more flats on my way home from work tonight, than I've had in the past six months combined. So what started as plenty of time, and a tailwind, turned into me being far far later than normal, battling a headwind.

It was a ride I'd rather soon forget, but at the end I asked myself if I still liked bikes. I do... but I might take out the CX bike instead of the roadie tomorrow... just to be sure.
