“Variety’s the very spice of life
That gives it all its flavour.”
William Cowper (1731-1800)
Some of you like a variety of girls.
Some of you like a variety of booze.
Some of you like a variety of boobs.
I like having a variety of bikes. I have six bikes now, soon to be seven. An assortment of bikes keeps me from getting bored. All I have to do is tell Dominic which bike I want to ride, and he gets it ready for me and sets it by the front door.
This week I was fortunate enough to get out on 3 different bikes, 3 days in a row.
Monday I took the road bike out for a long ride though the hills of Kentucky. The sun beat down on me like it was July, and I came home with tan lines and an empty tank after 4 hours.
Tuesday I got lost in Spring Grove Cemetery on my way home from work on my SSCX bike. This is the best thing about commuting – taking the long way home.
Wednesday the trails were dry at England-Idlewild and I took my Voodoo out for the first time since January. I rode for 2.5 hours and it was nothing short of pure bliss.
It’s been hella hot here. We had a taste of summer this past week with temps in the mid-80’s. Global warming is very real, my friends.by
