Pinarello Prince of Darkness

 After an insane day of relocating pool tables I just wanted to collapse on the couch with a European Cycling mag  (English not necessary), and a freezing cold  Affligem.  Curses!!!!  I still had to ride, as well as pick up some beer for the long weekend, since I won't be able to tomorrow night.  So I missed the team motor-pacing ride tonight, but the website schedule didn't specify that so it's kinda like......whatever........I went and did my usual default ride and did the Mid Week Crit course for a while.  I rode the Pinarello tonight even though the Zipp 303's creak like a cheap haunted house, in a cheap haunted house movie.  Don't even get me started on how crappy the Dura Ace shifts and sounds.

I like riding that course by myself , at night.  It's kind of like having your own little piece of the world that no one knows about.  I'm totally alone, and it's quiet.  I like riding in the near-darkness.  Keeps me on my toes.

Then I get home and the beers I bought earlier we nice and frosty.  No one must knwo my terrible secret.  I almost never have more than 2 beers at a sitting.

                     Look at that guy.  There's not a thought running through his mind right now.........
