Last day of vacation ride. Been a good stint. Got out early and caught a family of deer having a splash. I see deer quite often on rides, but this was the first time I’d ever seen them in the water.
Went out for an MTB ride in Penniac at the Hadley trail system. We were on the clock and Andrew flatted so was a short ride, but good to get out none-the-less. Nice light in the Corrective Action Bicycle Club clubhouse for pre-ride coffee.
Got up to go ride with Titus, had planned on riding the Cross Check, but during pre-ride check I noticed a broken chain-link. I couldn’t get it fixed and was running out of time to meet up, so rode the Karate Monkey instead. Once I met up with Titus, he flatted twice in a 1/2 hour and used all his spare tubes, so we sat at a cafe and drank coffee till his Team Car picked him up. Then I took the long way home. Changes in plans are just that, changes in plans.
On the way home stopped by the LBS to get a new chain, also picked up a fancy bear bell with an ‘on/off’ switch. What a time to be alive.
Rode this bike on a bridge today. Prolly should have ridden a different one. Brought a bazooka to a knife fight and managed to leave all cut up. Rode bikes though. Grabbed all the awesome I could carry, which was a considerable amount. Get out there folks, I left some for you.
The Missus mentioned last night that we needed english muffins for eggs benedict today so I offered to get some on my ride this morning. As such, when I left this AM, I  headed in the exact opposite direction of the store. My rough plan was to ‘find a loop’ or worst case scenario bail to an out-and-back.  Found some nice sights I hadn’t been seen in awhile.  Took a road that I’d never been on, had no idea how far it went, and only a vague idea of the direction it headed.  As is often the case, when I headed off in an unknown direction, I found myself. And a highway. Someone once said ‘Life is a highway.’ As long as the corner store is on this highway, I’m good.  Highway views are so much nicer at bike-speed.  Procured english muffins, accomplishing one of many missions for the day.
