rode aimlessly for 3 hours in the middle of buttfucking egypt. all the snow that melted froze again while i was riding. ate shit countless times, hard, one time getting my wrist jammed in with my spok and fork (no idea how the hell it happened). i am now bruised everywhere and my wrist kills and the dustcaps on my MKS AR2's fell off somewhere and my pedals have more dirt than bearings in them.

now i will make strap doublers and watch my spok spin for approximately 5 minutes.

I destickered my sticker bike. Sadpanda because I really like a lot of those stickers, but they were just way too much.

I should finish painting my track bike.

Took the Exile out for a quick ride, about an hour or so. There was this one really fun section by the waterfront which hadn't been plowed all winter. It was half-melted ice and slush full of deep footprints and shit. I was fish-tailing like crazy and was pedaling against nothing half the time.

People were staring at me like I was crazy or something!

I've had brunch there maybe a half-dozen times or so. Fucking amazing. I love their huevos rancheros and they make some kick-ass smoothies.

Pumped up my tires and ran some errands, it was fun but I think it is time to drop my gearing from 43x15 to 43x16 since the hills were kicking my ass.

I just impulse bought my bike yet another set of wheels, a 36 hole 9 speed ultegra-MA2 set for £32. I will combine the rear wheel from this set with my new 32 hole Shimano generator hub-MA2 wheel, and sell off all my other wheel stuff on the 'bay.

I rode the same 25 miles I did yesterday almost 10 minutes faster in heavy winds. I rode into the wind the first 10 miles with a lot of climbing then got a nice push all the way home on some flat road (110 Lowell/Dracut/Methuen) along the Merrimack river.

I stayed above that place for a few days last summer. We lolled the whole time we were there. Kind of pricey though.

I rode to the starting point of an alleycat and then realized that I was 12 hours late.
I am dumb.

Fantastic work Rusty.

I rode the stationary bike at the gym. That's kind of like being in an alleycat.

Rode it to friends', had dinner and chatted, then rode it to a bar just in time to watch the jazz trio pack their stuff up. So it goes.

I rode it 18km up to the top of a mountain and then proceeded to crash it on the way down. Then I rode it home, fixed the left brake lever and rode it to the hospital.
