Saturday Update

Peeps, I am tired!  I went for a 25 mile bike ride today, which isn’t actually very far, except that I was with a bunch of scouts trying to earn a cycling merit badge and they ride really    s    l    o    w.  So the ride took a heck of a lot longer than it would have if I was just on my own.  I don’t know exactly why, but cycling for a long time at a slow pace is much more tiring for me than riding the same distance in a shorter period of time.  Physics.  It’s probably physics.  or biology. or something.

Also, I watched Avatar for the first time today, so now I understand all the Pocahontas jokes everyone has been making for the past year.

  • It was a good day for a bike ride and Avatar was a bad movie but pretty 3D colors

  • I think I did that to poor Art today. We did a "test ride" to my office and back to help me become a bike commuter, and I am WAY slower than him. Now he's napping on my recliner.

  • @Live Life – I didn't get to see the 3d version! I'll bet it was neat.

    @Emily – how far is your potential commute?

  • Ren

    Impressive. I still haven't rode since #30daysofbiking ended on April 30th. I thought it was still to cruddy on Saturday for my wimpy self. I could have ridden this afternoon but a nap sounded sooo much better.

  • @Ren – it was pretty chilly alright… if it wasn't for scouts, I def would have stayed home.

  • 7.5 miles each way for now, closer to 9 after I move in a few weeks. It's also mostly on off-street trails, so bonus! (I fear cars.)

  • Yeah, why do scouts ride so slow? Gads, I hate that. I swear if I didn't have a whip at their backs, they would slow down so much they would fall over!

  • @Michael Carpenter – one of them DID fall over – a few times. I felt a little bad, but it was more funny than anything else. HA!!
