    Went to roll out this morning and realized I had a flat tire. I would have been bummed out, but I got to make my most pro move ever, and instead of changing the tire, I changed the bike.

    ...was AWESOME!

    I woke up with a head cold, which sucks, but the day went uphill sharply from the moment I got the bike out of the barn. Walked Miss Slowtriguy to school while pushing the bike, which was great. Hopped on and from that moment to walking into my office, everything that could have gone right did. Drivers stopped appropriately w/o Helpy McHelperson appearing. Every rider I saw was a PAL. Great conversation at a stoplight with a fellow rider. Got several "good mornings!" back to my usual morning greeting -- which is unusual; most of the time folks just don't say anything back.

    The cool weather cleared out my sinuses, the sun warmed my face, and wheels rolled along, and even the kamikaze squirrels slept in this morning...

    And to top it off, I think I swapped head bobs with Dickie heading westbound on the W&OD just west of the Brandymore castle hill about 0845.

    How many people get to say that their AWESOME commute eased their head cold, got them exercise, and let them exchange "good mornings" with several random strangers?

    Pardon me while I be blissful until That Meeting late this morning...

    That was me... good to see you. I was having a similar morning... terrible hangover and sinus pain cured by FCCII and a beautiful morning ride.

    Beautiful day for a ride, except I'm sooo tired! Curse you, Freezing Saddles! I only added one mile to my regular commute.

    Yesterday, though, during my effort to add miles to my commute, I found a new Strava segment in the neighborhood near my office. Today, despite being tired, I tackled it and got 2nd overall! Thank you, Freezing Saddles!

    Yeah...knew that would happen. The segment doesn't look like a particularly competitive one, which is probably why I'm second overall.

    Feel free to sandbag it.

    I specialize in not particularly competitive segments!

    Best part of freezing saddles? Water bottle is ALWAYS chilled!

    Very quiet this morning, only one other rider on the Custis. Guess the rest of you had the day off.
    But the sun rising over the monuments, as seen from the MVT, was very nice.
