Tomorrow, Saturday March 15, starts the cycling season. The RBC says so, the first club ride is at 2:30pm. There are just a few complications with the plan. One, there’s still a heap of snow.
I am ready. I am prepared. I took the winter break to name my bicycles. The Bike Friday is called Charles. The Trek is known as Maximilian, the mountain bike’s name shall be Boris and the Challenge recumbent’s Jimmy. The Trek, euh I mean Maximilian, visited the mechanics at Park Ave bike shop and now has a compact crank. Boris just returned all tuned up this afternoon. The cycle computer’s battery is charged. I refreshed the stock of spare tires and tubes. I bought new shoes. I stopped wondering why the bike shop is called Park Ave and is on Monroe Ave.
There’s just one thing. The snow’s gotta go. That’s where you come in. We need to pray to the weather gods to raise the temperatures. It has been proven that higher beings control the weather. There are just so many of them so let’s each pick one and address him or her in our thoughts.
We can do this, people! The RBC shall not be denied!
