Weakly ride report 10-2-10
Tuesday: 25 medium-savage miles with DarthWeasel. He was in training for his personal assault on all the shrimps in the sea, I think in vengeance. (A shrimp once ate DW, then turned him into a newt.) He managed to double the speed limit on a public road and escape with his life. I kept myself busy yelling obscenities at the trees and shrubs that kept eyeballing me.
Wednesday: About 8 fast miles around town. I was barely keeping ahead of pissed off foliage.
Thursday: 10ish miles, nothing exciting. I bet you are regretting reading this.
Saturday: 50.3 miles with DW. Perfect cool sunny weather, flat and long multi-use path. I thought we were going to get lost a couple of times, we didn't. We kept an relaxed pace for 4 hours, saw wild blacksmiths, a brave bunny, an IQ vampire, and a wasp flew into my helmet and got stuck. If my saddle were more comfortable I would have been good for a couple more hours. Our route took us in a loop around Portland twice then out on the Springwater Corridor. Google it, it is pretty cool.
