    Was not stellar last night. Got a flat in front of the Lincoln Memorial at which point Glargon Lord of Sky Tears decided to rain more of his despair down upon me. The culprit - a fricking shark tooth - EXPLAIN THAT ONE SCIENCE!

    2 explanations

    1. Some poor Touron kid is missing his trip souvenir.
    2. #waroncars trap setup by sharks

    The Sharks didn't want the Jets that are always flying into Dirt's head to have all the fun.

    Due to some changes of plan involving rain, and some forgetfulness, I ended up with more clothes at work than I wanted, so for the first time I took a full set of clothes including shoes in my backpack along with me on the evening commute. Despite that I felt good on the hills, though a LOT of people passed me on the Mason Bridge. Never saw so many cyclists at the Pentagon bus station before - besides me, I noted five others.

    bad news - first time I'd looked at my bike since my spill on Friday (I had left it at work all week) and it was not completely unscathed - some very visible scratches on the left shifter, some more minor ones on the right shifter and the bell.

    Lots and lots of bikes on the trails on the home commute which was really good to see. Even better is that with the enhanced numbers, most were considerate of both their fellow riders and other users of the trails. And the warm temperatures were kind to my old bones.

    I was drafting off of a Segway peloton. Ten Segways and a CaBi. Sounds like the opening line of a joke, but it was really the opening line of a furious rush of speed. 5 mph baby!

    I'd like to register a complaint. I am not getting enough protein via gnat vacuum intake (i.e., my nose and mouth). If I had eaten all of the gnats out there today, I would have only taken in about 1,500 grams of protein. That's not enough for a hard-pedaling cyclist. CaBi bikes are heavy. I need more protein!

    Please start eating some of the wasps and other biting bugs around here; they are bigger and have lots more protein. I've been bitten twice while biking in unmentionable places
