Back In The Saddle

First RideAerosmith is probably my least favorite band but their song seemed appropriate for today’s ride.  Don’t get me wrong, I have lip-synced to “Dream On” on many occasions.  Thanks to Rich and the guys from R&M Cyclery I got my bike back on Thursday.  It is pretty much a new bike.  A brand new frame and wheels with my old Dura Ace components.  It’s pretty cool.

Dan met me at my house around 10:00 and we proceeded to ride a little over 30 miles.  We did take a detour to Wheelfast and talked shop with HardyBreeds Bob S., Josh N., and Matt S.  I also bought a couple of water bottle cages.  They were handy as it was pretty humid today.

It felt soooo good to turn the pedals again after 8 weeks.  The ride was nice and slow, the weather was beautiful, and the company good.  I can’t ask for much more than that.  I don’t want to ever take things for granted again.
