Music.

Albums I can listen throughout…

These are albums I consider as “set it and forget it” albums where you like the order of the tracks and don’t mind just letting it play through.

I’ll add more as they come to me.  I think I’m gonna switch my stuff over to here.

Getting back on the saddle

I’ve always wanted yo say that and now I can.

So I’ve been really lazy as far as getting y bike put back together to go on some long rides. I got new TIME pedals and I want to see how they hold up. Granted my Shimano 105 pedals were fine, my cleats were wearing away and saw a good impulse deal on these. Only thing is, they need to be tighten by a tool other then the bike wrench. :/

Anyway, my bike has been sitting flipped over all winter and I need to fix that because I haven’t even had a chance to break in the bike after it was properly tuned up.

Though my city bike has been getting all the attention, I miss a long ride.

keep the good

Keep the good around you.  Positivity works and you feed off of it.  I don’t know why it takes so much to keep me motivated but when you comes, you have to run with it.  Sometimes you get stuck in the rut of things. I need to dust off my road bike and go for some long rides again.  

I get a kick out of riding my other bike around town but something is mentally freeing when you go for a long ride.  There’s a mental challenge to keep going but also, it’s pretty meditative too because it’s just you and the road.  You just go for as long as you want to, especially when you’re out on the open country roads. I’m going to try my new pedals once I figure out why they are so weird.  

My Shimano 105s have worked their hearts out but I want to feel a difference under my feet.  So I’ll see how that works out and report it.
