These are the days

So, the other day, I pull the Croll out of mothballs & tell my wife I'm riding the Homestead Trail to Cortland to help a friend. I leave Lincoln at 5:50 am & the ride to Cortland is spectacular. I've got Joni Mitchell on the ipod & am cranking along pretty good for an old out of shape beer drinker. I get to Cortland, and my friend asks me, "How do you ride that bike with two flat tires?". Goathead thorns did in both tires! Maybe next time, I'll ride a road bike.

Stoopid Goat Heads. They got me on the Cowboy Trail around Norfolk!

If you think you need some training, just ride 'em flat. More rolling resistance.
