Six AM ride tomorrow morning. That should be a blast.

EDIT: strike that... they cancelled because of rain. Looks like I'll be riding alone tomorrow afternoon, then. Been rescheduled for Sunday at 730.

Can you drive that fast on Skyline? Apparently not. | Almost-Daily Diary (updates to your phone by texting "follow @crbikes" to 40404)

Wow... imagine this happening.

I lifted up my leg just in time to push off the car and land going at a full sprint. Bike ended up under her car. I told homegirl that she had to pay for my bike or else I get the police involved so she did. Some friends and I went back for the bike to find that only the reflectors and front brake pads broke and that the handlebars were turned all the way around. Rode the bike home no problem. Then 1 week later I get a ticket on my bike for not having any reflectors of it. IRONY!

You have to have reflectors on your bike there? I ride at night all of the time along the bike path with no lights or reflectors.

Had a nice ride after the rain this evening, right up to the point when a squirrel ran out in front of me causing me to wreck. Rode the last 27 or so miles back home with wrist hurting like hell and of course hit every pot hole submerged in puddles between Clearwater and home. Thank goodness for left over pain meds from knee surgery.
