back at it

Well it was nice, but it had to end. The Tour and my holiday are over. Ryder got a seventh, how good is that. Daniel Oss, my 'random filler' pick on the fantasy tour was one of my best picks. Cadel got respect for being a hardman, but was a bit upstaged by Thor. I wish I had ridden more, but I needed to get the chores done, and being home means a nice lunch leads to a nap after a long ride, so I had to have days where my energy got used on more productive pursuits. Still I got in some good rides, and my tan lines are well set in.

Work is just nuts, everybody wants a piece of me and there isn't that much to go around.

The real news is that I let a PostDoc ride my bike, and she loved it and will buy it if I am willing to sell. So I rode by the bike shop and tested a higher end bike, and I think I just may be willing.

I will go for a long ride on the new bike tomorrow. They have optimistically written my name on the tag already! I do like it very much. Was just speaking with a guy who has the same wheels though, and he cautioned me to keep the Mavics for the daily commute, and shelve the Specialised racing wheels for racing.
