Things to do when the trails are rained out
« on: April 07, 2008, 12:19:40 AM »
1  Reorganize biking apearal: by brand? color? warmth?  Style... who are we kidding, just get it through the laundry.

2. Multitask on the computer between tax refund and bike websites, convince your self you can find the extra deduction that will pay for something you found in the bike porn.

3. Hope Plex is having an all day marathon of Drop In.  If you have never seen this show set your DVR.

4. Justify the idea of taking a weekday off for missing a Sunday on the trail.  Mabe our new Doctor can write you an excuse.

5. Send an email to Bike mag about how Oleta got Florida's trail of choice over our beloved jems or Santos or even Markum... are you #%$@ing kidding me

6. Think about what you needed to do to make the Moab trip and find a way not to miss out next time.

7.  Have a Cliff Bar sunday:  1 chocolate chip Cliff Bar,  icecream, Hersheys syrup, sprinkles (if you don' have kids, you better have a good excuse for the sprinkles in your pantry)  peanuts... exc.

8. BEER   pardon my ranting, I took this option

Hope things dry out soon, see ya on the trails

I agree, 6 and 8 were my options although I repeated 8 several times after the club ride on Sunday!

You could always clean the bike and do a "lube-and-tune". That's a good alternative when you can't actually get out and ride.

I have to agree with Noble with regards to beer.


Liquor is where it's at ;D

Beer is an acquired taste. the older, I get, the more I can stand it. Same with wine.
But I will say, if you've never tried home brewed beer, then wait to pass judgment, it's much better tasting than the store bought swill, no where near as bitter, almost sweet.
When you ride so far out that you hear no traffic, no people...nothing..

zen.

I am not big on Beer either. A cooold one once in a while is good, but I prefer Jack Daniels. ;)
