Yeah, tomorrow, got to board that big aluminum tube, and fly across the country from the base of operations in DC (District of Columbia, not Drunk Cyclist, although, this is sort of a base of operations as well, but I digress). Work calls, and I now go to, Pasadena. Anyone out there got any good leads on beer and food in Pasadena? Send them my way.
If I were more motivated, I’d pack up the bike, and fly it out there with me, as I understand it, there could be some decent riding out that way, but I’m only going to be there for 2 days really, fly out, meeting, testing, sleep, fly back. But, as mentioned above, I will have time for, yes, beer.
I’m heading out to check out some gloves we’re buying from a company called Danalco, who, makes the waterproof socks, SealSkinz I think they’re called, that for a short time, were the rage for mountain biking, don’t know if folks still use them or not. I remember I had a pair (before I destroyed them), and they worked pretty slick. Especially living in Maine, where in the so-called Springtime, there are actually a few different seasons. And they are, late winter, really late winter, mud season, spring, mud season part 2, early summer, and finally summer. It was so fucking muddy one year, I went through 6 sets of brake pads, and 4 sets of cables on the old mountain bike in 2 months (April and May). My feet though, were dry, because of the SealSkinz socks. Sure, little plug for the company, can’t hurt.
So, yeah, if any of you swinging dicks got good places to chow down, and drink beers in Pasadena, let me know. I’ve got a whole afternoon tomorrow to, ahem, “work”.by
