Alien Invasion

After reading about Jim’s encounters with Space Aliens on Lemond bikes, I decided to take my Lemond bike out for a spin.

I forgot how freaking fast that thing can be. I tucked into my most aero-ish position and flew down the hill. I almost hit 40mph before I got scared and grabbed the brakes.

The average speed reflected below is a little misleading. I was pushing the bike down an alley behind a gas station looking for a place to pee…. I probably should have disconnected the computer for that part.

My sunburt skin (from yesterday) really didn’t like being out in the sun, so I packed it in pretty early.
