Life Is Like an Elevator; Some Ups, Some Downs...and Sometimes The Cable Snaps and The Floor Falls Out From Under You
I had a really aggravating day at work, today. I worked an extra hour and a half, through no fault of my own, and ended up being there until almost dark.
Oddly, though, I had the nicest ride home that I've had in quite a while. It reminded me of the Friday night rides that I made a habit of, back in the summer and fall of last year. (It may be time to start those up, again, soon.)
The temperature was a balmy 41 degrees, when I left the lab, and the wind was dead calm. The sun had slipped behind the mountains, but the sky was still lit until almost 6:30.
I loafed along on the rebuilt Soma 4one5, just enjoying the beautiful evening. I was going no faster than I've been going on the snow tires, but at a more comfortable cadence due to the new gear ratio.
Tomorrow, I will be on the Red Rockhopper. It will be nice to have some gearing choices. My legs are still a bit tired from Saturday's 100 miler.
I hope to get the RockCombo rolling, by next week, to take the RockHopper's place. Hopefully, the roads will stay clear for a bit, so that I can ride it.
Sorry about the weird, rambling post. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a bit less negative, and I'll have a bit more cohesion to my thoughts.
