I got me some riding in this week. I know, I can hardly believe it either. I used to ride, well, quite a lot. Lately, not so much.
Anyway, Monday I got hour for two and a quarter hours on the road bike with Bacardi Marti. Tuesday was spent shopping with my sister (good times!) and the afternoon rains forced me indoors. Yes, that’s right, I may live in Phoenix, Arizona, where it’s warm and sunny most days of winter. But, 50 degrees and raining is not something I’m going out in. So I rode the rollers. In the kitchen. For forty-five minutes.
It went as one would expect it might.
The next day, Wednesday, I was home with my girls. The weather was grand, but I was relegated to the kitchen once again. For forty-five minutes on the rollers. It went as one would expect it might.
Thursday brought the promise of more exercise. And, man, do I need it. All this law-school, sit-in-a-chair-and-read stuff is making me soft. And Charlie, he’s out in the bush getting stronger.
Sometimes I need a bit of motivation to throw together another blog post. And, sometimes, I get a little nudge on down the line. Today was one of those days.
Subject: New Blog Post Suggestion
Dear owner of http://www.drunkcyclist.com,
I’m the webmaster of sharethedamnroad.com.
We came across your blog today and thought that you might want to know about a cycling jersey we are selling that is stirring up quite a buzz. The new jerseys at sharethedamnroad.com send a message to aggressive drivers.
If you decide you want to write a little something about us for your blog, let us know and we will reciprocate a link back to you!!
I like what those cats are doing and hope it all works out just swimmingly for them. As you may notice, learned reader of drunkcyclist, we link what we like and we’re not terribly concerned with getting that prized link-back. Link us if it makes you laugh. Simple enough plan, and it got us this far.
Of course, we’re all going to hell in a handbasket. But that is neither here nor there.

I am green
I calculated my carbon footprint at a few dozen acres, multiplied the acreage by 6.5 billion (people) and have come to the conclusion that there are so many fucking people on this planet that low emissions and energy efficient anything are abstract solutions to global warming and pollution. I am not suggesting that people should stop fucking, but pulling out before you have a litter of 10 is a really good idea.
However, I will still smugly ride my bike and pretend that I am making a difference. I guess my real global contribution will be made when I croak.
I gots to get a mini style bike for here in HK, like a light weight folding 20″. They got all kindsa fancy ones with folding pedals and gay shit. However, gay or no, you can take your folder in a taxi, onna ferry, inna subway etc. HK is too fucking small to ride a monster 29er! China on the other hand makes texas look little. My 29 will be the shit (im riding a 28 x 1 5/8 now)! They gots some hardcore riders in China too. Inviting me on 500 k rides alla time kaing me feel old and weak..
Ok, I am off to look at gay bikes in Mongkok, hahaha.
